Many thanks to Garfield Memorial Long Term Care Facility for their love, care and comfort and Autumn, Sheri, Marie and the entire staff, who took care of her and her family in her death final days.\n\nThe most important things to Kay were her family and her faith. She loved being a grandmother most of all. A quick visit from her grandchildren brighten her days to no end. She has grandchildren spread all across the United States and around the world. Kay held many positions as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was a Jordan River Temple Ordinance worker for seven years and 2 years in the St. George Temple. \n\nKay graduated from Granite High School in 1952 and studied briefly at BYU before getting married to Don and attending LDS Business college. Soon after she spent the next 2 years in Austria with Don while he was in the service. Upon returning to the states they began their family consisting of four children. Kay was very supportive of all her children in their various activities and hobbies, whether it be dance recitals, baseball, basketball or football games to watching parades because her daughter was a flag carrier or a runner up for Miss Murray. She hosted dinners for team sports, took pictures of dance couples, and crocheted countless afghans and baby clothing. Kay's family was very important to her and she loved to support them.\n\nKay was a secretary when working. She worked for Murray City, A Precious Metals Company and was a Librarian at her kids elementary school. Many of Kay's health problems prohibited her from working outside the home on a regular basis. \n\nIn 2004 Don & Kay left their comfortable home and neighborhood of 35 years and embarked on a new adventure by moving St. George, Utah where they made countless new friends and acquaintances. They now had family and friends at both ends of the state. Many of those who knew Kay were recipients of Kay's talented offerings. She enjoyed crocheting, painting decorative wooden eggs and her treasured nutcrackers. Kay loved to be useful so she kept herself busy making hats for newborn babies in the hospitals, dresses for still born baby girls out of her own wedding dress. She could never give enough.\n\nA "Celebration of Life" will be held at the Twin Lakes Club House, 840 N.
