Kay enjoyed spending time with her family. All her nephews and nieces were like her very own. She was always there and did for all of them. If you ever met her, you knew that you were a part of her family. She enjoyed the beach and decorating for all holidays, especially Christmas. Even though her time was limited on this earth because of her extensive battle with pancreatic cancer, she would pray for her family, friends and others. Kay’s consistent faith and loving spirit will be remembered by all who loved her.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff of Bladen East Health and Rehab Nursing facility and to the staff of Community Hospice.
