Kay was born on Aug. 16, 1961 in New Orleans, but spent the majority of her life in Minden.
Kay is preceded in death by her father, James (Jim) Marshall Scheffer and father in law, Harry Stahl.
She graduated from Northwood High School and Louisiana Tech University. After college, she began working as a teacher. She continued to
work with babies in the nursery at First Baptist Church even after retirement.
There are not words to express how special Kay was to each and every person who had the privilege of knowing her. Kay was married to her best friend for 32 years. She loved each and every one of her children implicitly, unconditionally, and limitlessly. Kay always shouldered everyone else’s worries, emotions and heartbreaks. She was a wife, a mother, a Gigi, a teacher, a friend and a rock.
Pallbearers will be Thomas James, Mike Dickson, Sterling LaBorde, Darin Mealey, Mike Toland, Patony Morrow and Roland Miers. Serving as honorary pallbearers will be the Body Shop Family of Ark-La-Tex Collision.
The family wishes to express a special thank you to the many friends and family who have expressed concern, prayers, and words of encouragement during this time of this tragic loss.
