Kay was born May 28, 1952 to the late Henry Floyd and Mary Elizabeth Lassiter in Zanesville, Ohio.
As a young lady she enjoyed square dancing and even belonged to a squared dancing club.
She had such a great love for children that she helped care for and raise her nieces and nephews. When she had her own she poured her love into raising them. Once they were out of the house she even babysat for the neighborhood children. Her caring heart didn’t stop there, sitting with an elderly mother of a dear friend during the times that they couldn’t be there.
She also loved playing card games with her family, Bingo night with the family at home was her favorite. As her second family embraced her she quickly embraced Loteria, repeating “La Sandia and La Rosa” while sitting around the dining table.
Her church life was a large part of her life and devoted so much to her church, teaching Sunday School right up to her last weeks, even worrying about not being able to finish her season to teach. A devout Christian woman of faith, she spent her life with the Baptist Church. She served as a Sunday School Teacher until her last few weeks. Not only did she serve as a Sunday School teacher but she was a powerful “prayer warrior”, as one of her church members put it, making sure to take her prayer list with her to the hospital. She attended Victory Baptist Church in Park Springs, TX until she moved to Iglesia Bautista Getsemaní (Gethsemane Baptist Church) in Fort Worth, TX.
Spending all her life in service industry in various positions she loved meeting new people.
Her regulars that would go by just to see her and visit a bit. She always had a smile and a kind word to say.
Kay is preceded in death by her parents; and sister, Molly Jane Trevino.
