Gay welcomed me into her family like I had always been part of it. She would have such joy and wonderful things to say and had a wonderful love of the lord. Scott and I have so many memories that I cannot pick just one to share. She would light up every time my boys walked into the room. She was an angel on earth to so many and now an angel in heaven. Thank you for loving me and all you did to make Scott such a wonderful man. You will be missed.

Gay was our neighbor until Uncle Jim (Worth) passed away in 1985. She was a very sweet, kind, caring and classy lady!! She would pop in for friendly visits and to check on Uncle Jim. Sending heartfelt condolences to Jerry and family.

When we moved into the house next to Gay in July of 2006, she was the first to knock at our door and welcome the strangers from Florida. She made Virginia feel like home instantly. She was dynamic, funny, brilliant and kind. She will be missed greatly. Our sincerest condolences to her family and friends. Celine & John

Aunt Gay was always a very special person in my life; particularly during my childhood and teenage years. I have the best memories of Sunday visits with lots of love and laughter. Gay was such a caring person who loved her family, friends and community. She found strength in her faith and always had a smile even when things were difficult. She was a wonderful lady will be greatly missed.

Gay was the sweetest lady I ever met. She carried her burdens in life with a smile on her face. She always made anyone that visited her home feel welcome.
Jerry you are in my thoughts at this difficult time.
