Kay - I will forever miss your warm smile and cheerful attitude when we worked together in Finance. I could not ask for a more dedicated employee and you were a loved member of the Sheriff's Office family. You always knew that family came first and your love for your family showed every time you spoke of them. Though I think we all wished you could stay with us longer, I know that you and Dale are continuing your journey together again and watching over all of your family and friends who one day will see you again. Peace and Love always

Everyone who knew Kay knew of her loyalty, dedication, and dependability.She was always there to help. Our loss is heaven's gain. God be with you all as you struggle to cope with the loss of Kay's physical presence.

Kay was a very dear friend to Bob and I. We enjoyed having our dinners at Colorado's and talking about our kids and grandchildren. Kay had a bucket list and one of the things she wanted to do was ride on a motorcycle. Bob and Kay went on their motorcycle ride and she enjoyed the wind blowing in her face. We had so many times we laughed and cried and she will be deeply missed. Rest In Peace my dear friend. We love you.
