She was Great Grandma K. to Kyle, Abby, Kole, Kael, Mallory, Bryson, and Reece. She loved to have the greats visit her and always had treats for them.

Her very special long-time friend, Linda Gilland, also survives her and has been like a daughter to her for many years. She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Nicki Kay in 1953, two brothers, Richard and Gerdon Kirk, two brothers-in-law Ronald Woodley and David Hines and three sisters-in-law, Carolyn, Ruby and Mary Kirk.
