Kay was cared for by her daughters Donna and Betty before their passing, as well as her granddaughters. In her recent years Kay was cared for by her granddaughter Angel Glass, and great-granddaughter Alexzis Glass (who had a special bond) with the support of family. When Kay slept, Alexzis slept, when Kay was awake, so was Alexzis. Kay cherished her memories with her entire family including her siblings, nieces, and nephews. As mom, she cared for our friends by ensuring everyone got to their destinations, whether it be events, games, and parades .

She will be missed by all who love her, and we will cherish every memory by praying as she taught us to do and remaining strong as a family that she loved very much.
