Kay was a 1955 graduate of Grand Island (NE) High School. She spent most of her life working in the nursing field, obtaining her LPN degree at age 50. She worked for The Diagnostic Clinic and in the Cox System for over 15 years. Kay was blessed with the gift of a beautiful voice and was always active in her church choirs, wherever she lived. She was always involved in the lives of her boys, and was a frequent voice from the stands at athletic events. She and her husband loved to travel and antique together.
