Kay was a loving daughter, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, grandmother and friend.  She loved the Lord and was a very spiritual woman.  She could pray for you and recite a scripture from the Bible at the drop of a hat.  She loved her children and would stomp the world over them.  Kay enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, family and beloved friends.  One of her favorite hobbies was fishing in Fortville, IN.  Kay enjoyed signing, dancing, playing cards, Scabble, and joking around.  She was a caretake of her brother, Darren, whom she loved dearly.  Kay was a special soul and will be extremely missed.
