I am Betty Rodefer's sister and have known Kaye for 32 years. Kaye was a very special lady. She was always willing to help others in need, including myself. I needed eye surgery that my insurance would not cover and she helped to make it possible for me to have the surgery, as well as helping my family throughout the years.

Kaye loved people and enjoyed playing pranks on others. She loved playing board games and cards with her friends.

Kaye will be greatly missed by all that knew her, especially Betty. Rest In peace, Kaye.

I am blessed to have met and known Ms Kaye! She was an awesome person and being her friend made me a better person! She could always make you see the good in things and people. I loved her as my sister in Christ and my good friend! I know she's happier than she ever was in this world and is reaping her rewards for all the good she did with her time here with all of us! I do miss her but I wouldn't. Bring her back here for anything in this world! I will carry her with me in my heart and always remember the things she taught me!

You will always have a very special place in my heart . Rest in peace till we meet again.

Love forever

I only just heard about Kay's passing. I am so very sorry that I didn't get over to see her. I've been in Oklahoma City for about eighteen years and just have come back home. Kay was a wonderful person. I am her first cousin and have many memories of Kay. I will cherish them. Kay was my mother's favorite niece. She always talked of Kay with love and affection. I spent a lot of time with Kay and Betty before I moved to OKC. She helped me when I needed to find a place to live and she helped me with wise advise and love. I will miss her. My condolences and love to the family and friends of this remarkable person. Betty my love and prayers to you and to Donna and all the beautiful nieces and nephews that have lost this amazing person. We will see you soon Kay. Love you!

Kaye and I go way back, friends for about 65 years , as a matter of fact. I truly loved Kaye. I will miss her so much, but I know she
just went home, I knew her parents and siblings, all fine people.

There will never be another Kaye. I am sorry for the loss to her family and friends.

We could not have a conversation for a year and take up where we left off. I think that is true friendship.

She will be missed not only by Betty, who I am sorry to say will be lost.

Forever in my heart.

To family: as I share in sadness with you as we remember Kaye. I am the niece of Betty Rodefer and I have spent many a weekend with them. My first memories of Kaye were of her and Aunt Betty taking me and a friend down the back roads in Kingsport in the back of her truck and running over the tops of hills very fast. Then we would get pizza and watch movies. As I became older, Kaye was a wealth of advice as I know she always had my best interest in mind. I would sit and talk with her for hours about college, jobs, relationships, and serving the Lord. She would always say that she was so proud of me and watching me grow into the woman that I am. She always loved my daughter Sarah and would tell jokes to make Sarah laugh. We never left her house without a hug, kiss and I love you.
Kaye, may you rest in peace. I love you.
Your “Little Sheila”

I remember Kay and her family well, even though I moved away and I have not seen her in half a century. She and her family were my neighbors back in the 1940s and 50's . I am thankful that she was part of my life.
