Over the last 24 years Kay worked side by side with the Prayerline directors at LeSea Broadcasting, where she sent hundreds of thousands of prayers around the world via the Ministry at Prayerline. She was devoted to her work and cherished her work family.
Kay enjoyed feeding people and hosting celebrations for friends and family in the home that she and Mac built together.
