Kay Heberle: brilliant and fierce, with a blistering acting talent and an intelligence that kept her always hungering for more knowledge, more self-awareness, more, more, more. Her talent was such that any director’s, actor’s or playwright’s work was made all the better, inevitably having to step up to meet the high standard she set for herself. (See Lewis Colick’s memory of April 16.)

She was the closest of my close friends for 6 years in the ‘70s, and my memories of that time overflow with Kay. Not only my friend, she was often my dedicated champion, imbuing confidence in my talent that I lacked in myself.

It’s untenable that this woman, a life force unto her own, has left the planet. I will miss Kay always.

Though I was a senior when Kay was a freshman, I have very fond memories. We talked and she laughed and I laughed. I have not seen her since high school but, I have to say if I had we would have laughed together. So sorry to hear of her passing. RIP, and condolences...

Kay was my classmate at Burleson High School in 1968. I met her when I first moved to Burleson in the 9th grade. She was so kind to everyone and had the most beautiful smile. A great memory. Prayers for her entire family. God has acquired another precious angel.

Those of us fortunate enough to have been a part of the UCLA theatre department back in the 70's will never forget Kay. She starred in three plays that I wrote and delivered the powerful performances she was known for. She made me a better writer, and I am forever indebted to her. She was a great friend, a grand talent and a true artist, truly one of a kind she will be greatly missed.

I went to high school with Linda Kay and we were all blessed to have a small class so that we were all friends. Prayers for peace and comfort for her family!

Growing up, I lived across the street from the Heberle family. I was a year older than Suzanne, the oldest sister. So Linda Kaye was always young to me. Of course, I remember Paul as a toddler. I just cannot grasp that Linda Kaye is gone. I did not stay in touch but, of course, followed her acting career from time to time. I'll always remember the sweet, creative girl that I knew. Rest in peace in heaven with your parents. Kathe (Rawlins) Bernstein.

I can’t think of Kay without thinking of Blue Birds and Camp Fire girls. We were lucky to have Kay’s mom as our group leader. I remember singing “day is done, gone the sun....” It’s hard to imagine Kay is no longer with us. She had a spirit that was fun and special. Thanks, Kay.
