Kay married Raymond William Fay in 1948 and they moved to Long Island where they raised two children, Sharon and William. In 1969 they moved to Shaftsbury. Kay loved her home and her garden. She loved to bake and sell her goods at the farmers market. Ray died in 1991. An executive secretary for many years, Kay worked at Bennington College before returning to NYC to work for the chancellor of the City University of New York.

She loved to travel and her journeys took her to Cozumel, Egypt, Africa, England, Ireland, Scotland, China, Japan, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Iceland and Machu Pichu just to name a few. Her favorite place was Cozumel. She visited there twice a year and considered it her second home and family. She touched the lives of so many people all over the world.
