Everywhere she went she had great friends who loved and valued her – it was impossible not to.  She appreciated and cared very much for all of her friends and co-workers.

Kaye is survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and other extended family members whom she also remained close to and maintained loving relationships with including her Sister by marriage – Jane Davis-Albert of Jacksonville Florida.

Her pride and joy were her children, grandchildren and great grand children who learned from her the lessons of appreciation, caring and unconditional love. The secret that binds family and friends together and holds them close.
