Kay was a wonderful, loving, kind, considerate, and fun person. My sympathy to the family, but to Kay I say rest in peace as I know and believe you will. My favorite and most comforting Bible message at this time is that at the second of our passing we are "absent from the body and present with the Lord." May we all live to aspire to live our lives as Kay did so we will be with God eternally. God bless all of you.

Mrs. Jackson was my Home Economics teacher 1983. She was very caring and kind. She taught me great life skills. Her teaching me how to sow was the best memory. I will never forget making me 1st pillow. Beautiful heart, she was. My condolences to your family.

I was glad to have been in her class at NC. She was one of my best teachers there. She could cook and sew. May the lord bless her family.

I had the privilege of getting to know Kay while I served as Assistant Principal and later Principal at NCHS. Working with her was such a blessing. She was an excellent teacher and a wonderful person. Our students and our faculty loved her. Her sense of humor brightened many days for me. Rest In Peace, Mama J.

I had the pleasure of being in mama Jackson’s Home Ec class and a member of her student club Future Homemakers. I later had the pleasure of getting to know her when I went to work at NCHS. I will forever cherish my memories.

Kay was my forever friend. We were born 3 days apart in St Luke's Hospital in Tryon N.C. We started first grade together at Mill Spring N.C School and began a friendship that lasted thru grammar school and two years of high school at Mill Spring and then for the last two years of high school at Polk Central High, where we graduated in 1962..we had so many good times together, often staying overnight with each other. I loved her family and she loved mine. As teenagers we double dated and just enjoyed our school years. Along the way, Brenda Price, Helen Jones,and Barbara Ledbetter became our close friends. The five of us kept in touch after graduation and later on took trips together once every year. Those times together were full of laughter and lots of talk about our school days.. Our last trip together for the five of us was to Hilton Head S. C. Sadly when we went the next time, Barbara had passed away, but the memories we made with her were not forgotten. Neither will the memories made with Kay ever be forgotten..I feel so blessed to have had her be a part of my life all these years, I will miss her so much...my heart felt prayers go to her family whom she loved so dearly. May God bless you and help you as you go on each day without her.
