She was a very warm and caring person who never met a stranger. Kay had many friends that she enjoyed and many visited her during her sickness. Kay and Tommy have two sons who Kay devoted all she could to make them the true gentlemen they are today. She was selfless and always put her family first in whatever was needed.

I will always remember when I had just started working with you at C&B, and you would take me home with you for lunch at your house.
Kay wouldn't know that you were bringing me along, but she would prepare something really good to eat without protest, and always made me feel welcome. A great lady!
Keeping you and your family in our prayers sir.

a friend always,
Steve Westall

I don't think I've ever known a more kind and generous person than Kay Nussman. Thank you for being such a great neighbor and friend, Kay. You and Vickie fought hard. I look forward to seeing you again one day soon.

Dear Miss Kay,
We will never forget you because you are a part of the fabric of our lives. The tapestry woven with beautiful memories of you. Kay, you were much more than my neighbor, you helped us all in some way or another. I know on more than one occasion you got little Stacy to school on time. You kept us safe and you loved us all. Just as we have loved you Miss Kay. You will always be remembered as the Angel of our neighborhood. Thank you for all the love and time and caring you spent on our little neighborhood, you will be sorely missed by us all.

With all love and respect,
Sheri and Stacy Dunaway

So sorry to hear about Kay! She was a great lady and I so enjoyed our baseball years together. I ran into her occasionally over the years and she always enjoyed gushing over her boys! So proud of them! She will be missed!

Mary and I were so blessed to have known you; yet just for a short time. . Although we can never replace you; we at least know how powerful a solid family unit can be and its our intention (as you would have) to be there for your son; our daughter and grand daughter .
You have fought the good fight which means you never lost FAITH in GOD. Rest in Peace ; your memory will always be with us; a great Mother; Wife and and Friend to us all.
