So sad to hear this.  I suspected she was ill as I haven't heard from her in a long, long time.  Didn't know her well, but she was so cheerful all the time.

Kay was a "Ray" of Sunshine inside & out! Metzger & Meyer always seated together in classes and especially for 3 years in Mr. Light's Homeroom. I was fortunate to start each a.m., with Kay's smiling, upbeat personality. Ray & I enjoyed visiting with Kay at our 50th Reunion. She was so happy to be there. Thank you, Rick and Pam, for making that long trip possible. Happy Memories for and of Kay!

I did not know Kay in high school, but knew of her.  She seemed like a very nice person.  After many years and getting on Facebook I connected with her.  She was a great fan of Saginaw and promoting it.  She was encouraging me to meet with a group that met for lunch, discussed the city and how to be involved.  Because of our discussions on Facebook I got to know her a little.  I decided to go to the 50th class reunion and actually met her there.  We sat at the same table for a while and she was very nice and fun to talk to.  I did sense she was not in good health, but didn't pressure her to talk about it.  It wasn't long afterward that she stopped corresponding on Facebook.  Other people seemed to have trouble reaching her too.  I am truly sorry to hear of her passing.  The world desperately needs more people like her!

Kay (I always called her as "Kay Ellen") was a sweet person and just a wonderful person.  Her parents and my parents were members of St. Paul's Episcopal Church on the east side of Saginaw and that is where I met her.  She and I went through catechism together and were confirmed by Bishop Emerich (the Episcopal Bishop of Michigan) along with 6-7 others.  We kinda grew apart as we got a little older, until we re-connected on Facebook a few years ago.  I knew she had discontinued involvement with Facebook but I didn't know why and I didn't know she had any health problems.

I would have loved to see her at the 50th Class Reunion but my niece was married on the same weekend in Minnesota and I had to take my mom to the wedding and reception.  

I will miss her gentleness and her smile the most.
