Mary Kay flew home to Heaven on the wings of Angels this January. She leaves behind her sons Michael of Los Angeles, Keith of West Palm Beach, Pat of Durango and daughter Melissa of Colorado Springs, each of whom were always honored to call her "mommy." She leaves 12 grandchildren who will miss their Nanna Kay very much, and one great grandchild. She also leaves behind her dear friend of over 50 years, Sugar of Kansas City. Additionally, so many friends, co-workers and classmates of her children that are too numerous to count. A consummate loyal friend, a fiercely loving and protective mother, a "can-do" hardworking co-worker til the day she died, Mary Kay epitomized what's good in all of us. Heaven is happier now, and Jim and Nikki are smiling, but the world is emptier. Services are Thursday, Jan 31st at 6pm at Mountain View Mortuary, corner of Academy and Montebello.
