She worked at the phone company in New York and later at Thrifty Drug in San Diego until she retired.
For the past 28 years Kay made her home in the Spokane Valley.
Kay taught her children responsibility, work ethics and what family means.
She was selfless and very giving.
Kay loved being around her family and enjoyed traveling to California, Colorado, and Oregon to visit her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
That’s what she loved the most, family.
She will be missed.
