She leaves us with a legacy of memories for miles. Her fondest moments were spent at home with her husband and family. Some of the most memorable were Christmas’s with all of the grandkids opening presents and many days out by their pool enjoying endless parties and BBQ’s. As a couple, Kay and Vern enjoyed traveling with friends, dancing, trips to Atlantic City and long drives in the fall to see the foliage.
Kay spent most of her life raising her 7 children and worked as a secretary at St. Agatha’s Home for Children in Nanuet, NY. Kay enjoyed many hobbies including, gardening, reading, cooking, painting, knitting and sewing.
She will always be fondly remembered by her family and friends. Her sense of humor and kind spirit will continue to carry on through her family. She is now dancing with her true love Vern, forever at peace. We will miss you.
