Kay and I were colleagues on the Office of Admissions at the U of M. I had the privilege of working with her for a number of years, and I have many good memories of her humor, toughness and upbeat mindset. She loved her children and grandchildren so much-I know you all miss her and so do I. My condolences to the whole family.

I remember being taken on a tour of the Office of Admissions at the U of M on my first day of work. As I introduced myself to Kay, she said merrily, "Don't get too used to me! I'm going to retire soon!" She then worked 13 more years (!), adeptly handling so many changes to technology with gusto and a great sense of humor. She shared wonderful advice with me as my career and family grew. I remember that she exuded pride in her granddaughters and love for her husband Jim. She was a wonderful person to know, and my condolences go to her wonderful family.

My deepest condolences to Kay's family. Kay was a terrific lady, She was a long-time colleague of ours at the University of Minnesota Office of Admissions. She was also my friend and neighbor. The Kay I knew was tough (when she needed to be), smart, conscientious and kind. The last couple of years that she worked she would ride to and from the office with me every weekday. We'd stop by the Riverview Cafe to pick up our morning coffee. During our morning and evening commute, we talked over just about everything: families, work, pets, favorite restaurants and meals, things going on in our neighborhood and the state of the world. When she retired, I really missed those times we had to talk and get to know each other. Kay loved her family fiercely. God speed, dear friend Kay. Maggie Gardner
