I am sorry to hear of Kay's passing. I have fond memories of Kay from way back in the late 1960's. My family and the Snyder's were "neighbors" up by Tilford back in the days when neighbors were a couple of miles apart. Kay was my piano teacher during that time and I also babysat for her. I will always remember the noisy peacocks there on the ranch! Rest in Peace Kay. You led a very full and productive life.

To Kay's family...I have missed seeing and visiting with her these past few years. Whenever I would see her at Lynn's, she would always greet me with "Hi neighbor"! We spoke on the phone about lost dogs, cattle out along I-90, committee work, Festival of Trees, and more! I truly enjoyed our friendship, and will miss her. So sorry for this loss to your family. RIP, Kay!

I was saddened to hear about Kay's passing. She was a good friend to my older siblings, Jeff, Lester and Connie Watson. Fantastic sense of humor and I know she will be missed.

I am so very sorry to hear of Kay's passing. She was a very strong and supportive member of Toastmistress and greatly respected by all. I remember her kind guidance and understanding of a young girl with little self-confidence. She was so kind!!! I always admired her. She gave much to so many. Great lady.

Cal and I are so sorry for you loss, what a beautiful lady. Cal took piano lessons from Kay, but was a mutual agreement that he had interest in other things, and if you know Cal it was hunting and fishing. When Cal and I got married we stopped by one time, as we were getting in the car to leave Kay handed us some hamburger. What a lovely lady. Cal and Cheryl Wa;sh
