Kay Jene Walker Brewer, 82, passed away on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland, MS.

Kay was born in the Auburn community in Franklin County, Mississippi, on June 7, 1932, the daughter of Bennie and Ella Godbold Walker. She graduated from Mars Hill High School. In 1951 she married the love of her life, the late W. K. (Dub) Brewer. Kay and Dub settled in Jackson after living in Starkville, Panama City, FL, Gulfport, MS and New Orleans, LA. Kay began her career as a florist in Panama City where she worked tying bows for the floral arrangements. After moving to Jackson she worked at Pridgen's Florist where she began arranging flowers. She soon opened her own business, BoKays Florist, and became well known for the beautiful flowers she provided for her customers. BoKays closed in 2010 when Kay retired.

She was a longtime member of Woodland Hills Baptist Church. Kay loved her church, her family and her flowers. Each Christmas she decorated the sanctuary and during the year provided flowers for the alter each Sunday.

Kay is survived by her two daughters, Teresa Miller (Bubba) Jackson, MS and Alicia Little, Pearl, MS; four grandchildren, Bo Massey (Alethea), Jackson; Josh Massey (Jessica), Belden; Nicholas Little (Carla), Semmes, AL; Allison Little, Pearl, and three great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters Lynrose Lymberis, Jackson, and Wanza Broome(Charlie), Madison; one brother, Jimmy Walker(Anne), Rolling Fork; and nieces Temple Lymberis, Jackson; Belinda Broome Early, Richmond, VA; and Suzanne Walker Smith (Paul), Brandon.
