We at the American Village mourn the loss of Kay Johnson, a dearly valued volunteer at the Village, and a beloved friend in Montevallo to so many people. Betty and I join so many others who will miss this sweet kind lady. We give thanks to God for her life and example, and we also give thanks in her joyous homecoming in the blessed presence of our Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ.

Kay and I have been friends and Sunday School & Church members for many years. It was heartbreaking to learn of her death and she will be truly missed. It was so good to see her at the grocery store the week before she went to the hospital where we had a nice visit.
My deepest sympathy to her family.
