Kay is a beautiful soul I knew since elementary school. She always wore a winning smile and had something kind to say. The last time I saw her was in 2005 when she came to my father's funeral in Newark, which meant a great deal to me. I just learned of her passing on this site so am still stunned a bit. I remember one of the reunions when she was having a ball filming us all on her VHS camera. I ran into her once while home visiting my folks and she tried to sell me a pot-bellied Vietnamese pig as a house pet. This was something I did not expect from Kay, brimming with energy, enterprise, and unexpected revelations. Kay made a dynamic, delightful contribution, although without fanfare, to our class and shall truly be missed.

Kay and I were buddies in elementary school and in Girl Scouts together. I saw her a few times over the years and last saw her in November of 2006. She was always a joy to be with. I miss her. Sue Benner Wages

I SAW KAY SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE YEARS AS SHE USED TO BE A PHARMACIST AT LICKING MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. SHE WAS ALWAYS CHEERFUL AND FULL OF ENERGY. SHE LOVED ELVIS AND AT ONE TIME WORE A GOLD TCB PENDANT(TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS)SHE WAS ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING FOR OTHERS AND THE LAST TIME I SPOKE WITH HER WAS IN NOVEMBER OF 2006 WHEN SHE HAD SUE AND TOM WAGES AND ME OVER FOR LUNCH.
SHE HAD JUST BEEN TO AN AUCTION AND BOUGHT SOME FURNITURE AND WAS TRYING TO GET IT BACK TO NEWARK SO SHE COULD GIVE IT AWAY
TO SOMEONE IN NEED. SHE LOVED HER LORD AND CERTAINLY ACTED AS HIS HANDS AND FEET WITH ALL SHE DID FOR OTHERS.
SHE HAD LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT AND DIDN'T APPEAR WELL THE LAST TIME I SAW HER. SHE IS TRULY MISSED.

I always enjoyed running into Kay and talking with her, from high school on. She was one of those people whose life and mine seemed to cross pathas and weave in and out intermittently and randomly over the years. Ron, she tried to sell me a pot-bellied pig, too, when she came in to the old Advocate building (the one across from city hall) when I was working there. She was always very smart, did and said surprising and unexpected things and was, therefore, a joy. Seeing her was always a little gift in the day.
At one point she lived around the corner from me in a blue house on Rugg Avenue and then another one that she bought just down the street from that one.
One time she called me and unexpectedly invited me to go on a trip with her, which I was unable to do because of work and because I was a single mom at the time. See what I mean? Always a joy, always thoughtful, always unexpected. Kay, may you rest in peace, or in a way that you would probably like better: Doing things to surprise all those loved ones up in Heaven. You are probably organizing an activity right now.

Kay was one of the dearest people I knew. When Julie and me where married Kay just showed up and we were friends for the rest of our lifes. People like her are hard to find. she will always be missed by our class.

Kay was a beautiful girl.  She always had a smile.  I knew her since elementary and we were good friends from the start.  She was always so kind.  When we had a death in the Fetter or Baughman families, Kay always came.  What a loss.  RIP dear friend.  You will never be forgotten.
