She was born in Pacific Grove, and graduated from Pacific Grove High School in 1947. Kay passed away on February 16th, peacefully at her home in Seaside, California.

Kay was an avid crafter, and enjoyed her tenure at Fads and Yarns at Del Monte Center from the late 1970s to mid-1980s. She started there as an employee, working her way to buying the store and making it her own.
She was a member of Saint Matthias Episcopal Church in Seaside.
Kay is preceded in death by her daughter, Margaret, and her siblings Frederick, Richard, Margaret and Donald. She is survived by her daughter Deborah, grandchildren Gordon and Tracy, as well as extended family of nieces and nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.
