Kay had many passions and talents. She had a natural green thumb and took pride in her indoor plants as well as her many gardens outside. Kay's favorite place to be was at the beach, she loved beach combing, agate hunting and clam digging at Birch Bay. Kay had a soft and kind heart for animals, and rarely would you see her without one of her strays trailing close behind. But the one thing she loved the most was spending time with her family and those she cared about.
