On Friday June 18, 2021, Kay Annette Neyman Cromeenes passed away peacefully in the presence of her daughters. Born in Provo, Utah on April 29, 1939, Kay was the eldest of four children.

From there she moved to Las Vegas where she spent the remainder of her life. That is where Kay, also known to many as Sissie, graduated from Las Vegas High School in 1958 and met her husband, Bill Cromeenes. She and Bill built a life in Las Vegas, raising their three daughters there, and later welcomed four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

Kay worked for the telephone company until 1964 when she became a devoted housewife and mother. She later volunteered at Paradise Elementary School and was eventually hired and she spent the next 34 years working at Paradise until she retired. She also worked at the Thomas and Mack Center from the day the doors opened until 2012. No matter where Kay worked or where she went, you would always find her with a bright smile and a kind heart. She loved spending time with her family and friends, and she really enjoyed her work. Kay also loved to travel and could be ready to go at the drop of a hat. Disneyland was definitely one of her favorite destinations, but she would travel just about anywhere, whether by car, boat or plane.

Kay was preceded in death by her father Grant F. Neyman; mother Catherine Liddell; sister Pamela Liddell Gang; grandson George Greco; and her husband Bill Cromeenes.

She is survived by her daughters Debra (Rocco) Poole/Andreassi, Robin Greco and Rebecca (Tim) Jeffery; grandchildren Kayla (Stephen) Poole-Novotny, Timothy Jeffery and Megan Jeffery; great-grandchildren Izabella Marin, Bryson Novotny and Blake Novotny; siblings David Neyman (Eva) and Erin Liddell Cason; and many nieces, nephews and cousins who will miss her dearly.

We will celebrate Kay’s life on Saturday, July 24th at 10:00am, at Palm Mortuary, located at 7600 S. Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89123.

My favorite story to tell from my childhood involves Miss Kay saving the day! When I was young, I liked to run off on my own. I must have been 3 years old when one day I decided I was going to school. My mom was sick on the couch while I was in the kitchen packing myself a lunch. She asked me "Joe, what are you doing?" to which I replied "Making my lunch to go to school". She didn't think much of it - I was three. Sure enough, a while later, I was nowhere to be found! After searching all over the house and neighborhood my mom decided to call Paradise Elementary, down the road. Miss Kay answered the phone and assisted my mom. She put her on hold, took a look around and returned to the phone to say "Oh yeah, there's a little boy just sitting all by himself out on the swing set!" Miss Kay retrieved me from the playground and reunited me with my distraught mother.

Miss Kay will always be important in my life and will be truly missed. My older sister went to Paradise, and there was a time that I was in the office as an infant with my mother, and Debbie was visiting Kay with her infant daughter Kayla. Kayla and I ended up in kindergarten at Paradise together and become very good friends throughout our childhood. I like to say I met my first lifelong friend when I was just a tiny baby in Miss Kay's office at Paradise Elementary.

Miss Kay was one of the school secretaries from Paradise elementary. I remember her, I was a small second grader. One day I was soo sick to the point where I couldn’t explain what it was I was feeling. All I could do was cry. Miss Kay hugged me tight and walked me to the nurses office said “poor girl, it’s going to be okay”. I’ve never forgot her warmth and kindness towards me that day. Thank you Miss Kay. Small acts of kindness are never forgotten ❤️

My condolences and prayers to her loved ones and family. 🙏🏽

Oh Miss Kay! I know how missed you will be, we were all blessed to have known you at one point in our lives. I was a young student at the time I met Miss Kay. I started the 4th grade at Paradise Elementary and had Mrs. Moynihan, which was nice but stern, Principal Hall, who also was nice but had a paddle above his desk, so having Miss Kay the first face you would see walking into the office, really was comforting. She was such a wonderful person and truly cared for all of us kids. My little brother and her grand daughter were best of friends growing up so he too was also lucky to have known Miss Kay and the whole Cromeenes family. May you rest in peace. Our deepest condolences, The Ladd's
Norma, Laura, and Little Joe ❤

I worked with Miss Kay at Paradise E.S. She knew all the parents and students by name. She was warm and friendly definitely the mother figure of the school.

Kay loved my chocolate covered pretzels. Every time I brought them in, she would light up like a 1000 watt light bulb. I could only make them in the cooler weather so she called it chocolate covered pretzel weather when I brought them in to Paradise Elementary School.
