Ella Kay was a loving mother and caring grandmother, sister and friend. She enjoyed the simplest things in life but her greatest joy was her family. With a big heart and gentle spirit Ella loved doing things for others. She wasn’t able to do a lot of physical labor, but she spent a lot of her time doing crafts for other people. She loved holidays and would always see that her house was decorated inside and out. Ella loved with all her heart and she was a true friend to those she knew. She will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved Ella Kay.

I remember Ms Kay as a fun loving person. Back in the old days when she worked at the Etna gas station she would give you a smile and make you laugh. Now her and Kenny are together again in Heaven. She will be dearly missed.
