Kay was born in Asheville and grew up in Lavonia, GA. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Journalism. She started working for the Home Weekly newspaper in Lawrenceville. After a couple of years, she began her real career of raising a family, creating a wide web of friends and impacting people for Christ. Kay was very involved in all her children's schooling, becoming President of the Marist Mothers Association. She loved to read and was involved with several book clubs. Kay was struck with wanderlust and would travel anywhere and did go just about everywhere. She enjoyed everything from exotic overseas trips to a weekend impulse road trip, if it sounded fun, she was always ready. Her primary focus was her love of the Lord. Kay was very active in her church involved in many different ministries. Kay was a long-time member of the Norcross Women's Bible Study Fellowship, where she met, studied and grew in her faith with many like hearted women. She was involved in many other small groups where she was encouraged and encouraged others to live a life as disciples of Jesus.

Kay was devoted to her family. In recent years she had grandchildren that allowed her "all the fun and none of the headaches." She spoiled them aggressively! She loved to be with friends, loved to entertain and was a great host. Any get together was going to be well planned and fun was guaranteed. Kay was loving and kind, a good listener who gave advice thoughtfully. She will be missed by everyone.

The funeral will be November 20, 10:30 AM at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Flowery Branch, GA. Visitation will be November 18 for 6:00-9:00 PM at Crowell Brothers Peachtree Chapel on Peachtree Industrial Blvd.
