She was preceded in death by her parents, Joe E. McKinney and Dixie Liles McKinney.

Kay was born in Austin, TX at Bergstorm Air Force Base Hospital in 1956. She lived in many places in her life as her father was in the Army. She grew up in Minden, Louisiana where she graduated as salutatorian of her class at Minden High School. She received a full scholarship to Northeastern State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and a Master’s in Toxicology at the top of her class. She loved her work as a Registered Pharmacist for 38 years.

She was an excellent seamstress and shared her talents with local schools and churches, as well as her friends. She was very social and loved spending time with her friends. She was kind and loved helping anyone in need. She was an avid antique enthusiast and loved shopping with friends and family. One of her favorite pastimes was creating and sewing costumes for her belly dance troupe and Renaissance Festivals. She was able to spend her retirement with her loving husband, chihuahuas, children, and grandchildren.

A heartfelt appreciation is extended by the Ford family to Steve LeBlanc for the devotion and care he has selflessly given to Kay in her time of need and to the staff of Audubon Hospice for their compassion.
