I always enjoyed seeing Kay and Eddie and Brenda and was blessed to have Corky as a sister. She touched many lives in many positive ways especially as foster parents. Love You !! Alice Hansen

I knew Kay as a member of the American !egion Auxiliary in Sioux Center. A great and very willing member. I feel very blessed to have her recipe for almond cookies, which is a family favorite.
