She attended South High School and became a member of Columbus Bibleway Church with her family during the 70’s. Kay started her employment career at an early age having worked for Big Bear and several other companies. Nonetheless it was her love of children that led her to become a Home Health Aid for the Ohio Department of Mental Retardation Developmental Disability (MRDD) where she worked until her declining health. Kay had an extreme love for her family, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, god children and cousins. However, she had a special bond and unique relationship with each of her siblings. She was extremely proud of her sons (Jeffrey and Antauwn) and delighted in holiday family celebrations. Kay often referred to as the life of the party enjoyed traveling, spending time with family and taking Selfies! She was known by all as one who kept it real and didn’t mind giving you her opinion on all things.
