Ms. Kay will be dearly missed. I truly loved her and her spunky personality. My dad Bill would just rave about her candy saying, “Paulette, please go see the Candy Lady...she has the best chocolates ever!” Ms. Kay’s smile would just lighten the entire room. Her grace was beautiful as she would sashay across the dance floor.

My deepest sympathies and condolences to the entire Szubinski Family. Ms. Kay will be missed but her memory will be forever cherished!

Sympathies to the family of Mrs. Kay. We were very fond of Mrs Kay at Williams Boulevard Baptist Church and we will miss her smiles and her wonderful candies. She always made candy for her Pastor. Peace and comfort to her family.

Tommy, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I will miss the stories you would tell about her and of course, the candy she would make that you would bring to work and share with everyone. She will be dearly missed.

I’m so sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. Prayers for Kay and the family. I spent many a day at Kay and RS’s home especially after the twins were born. Her sweet and loving demeanor was always so warm and welcoming. Tammy please message me on Facebook.

Jerry and I will miss that beautiful smile and friendly nature of yours sitting across from us at the Oldies but Goodies dances. I will miss sharing little secrets between us and wishing that your candy would be won by me or Jerry as a door prize. And thrilled when I did win it. Miss you always and until we meet again...

Our prayers are with Kay and her family!
