I have the very best memories of Kay. I worked closely with her for several years at JBU. She cared deeply about people and was a dedicated HR professional. She had a good sense of humor and always had a smile on her face. Kay was also a neighbor and showed a real interest in our kids. Most of all, she was a prayer warrior who faithfully lifted up the needs of others. I am grateful for her faithful example of walking with Christ.

Our family's thoughts and prayers are with Kay's family. Kay was one of our first neighbors when we moved to Siloam Springs. She was a treasured friend, a warm and generous hostess, and served at JBU with professionalism, distinction, and a great love for people. Her love for her family and for her Lord shined in all that she did.
