Kay L. Maycumber
Dec. 5, 1947 - April 5, 2021
Kay Laura (Snortland) Maycumber age 73, died at her home in Beaverton, Ore., Monday, April 5, 2021 after living valiantly with a brain tumor for nine years. Kay was surrounded by her husband of 54 years, her two children, their spouses, and five grandchildren as she passed into Heaven after celebrating her last Easter.
Kay was born in Walla Walla, Wash., Dec. 5, 1947 to Morris and Josephine Snortland. She was a lifelong Oregonian who graduated from South Eugene High School in 1965 and attended (then) Southern Oregon College until she married her high school sweetheart Jack "Cary" Maycumber June 17, 1967.
Kay was both a member and a beloved staff member of Beaverton Foursquare Church for more than 45 years, where she served as Treasurer. Kay spent her early years in Eugene and she was a passionate University of Oregon fan. As a season ticket holder for four decades, Kay spent many football seasons following her beloved Ducks to their away games, including many Bowls. Kay, along with Cary, was an avid outdoor enthusiast who spent most vacations camping with her fly fishing husband, rafting, cross-country skiing and experiencing the beauty of our National Parks. In addition to U of O games and outdoor explorations, Kay and Cary traveled to most of the 50 states and many international destinations including Israel, Canada, Mexico, England, France, and Croatia.
Kay is survived by her first love, husband, Cary Maycumber; her two adult children, Kymra and Jason and their spouses; as well as her five grandchildren. Kay is also survived by her stepmother, Geraldine (Jerry) Snortland of Eugene, Ore.; her five siblings, Jon Snortland of Eugene Ore., Patty Salvino of Spokane, Wash., Jayne Enneking of Cocoa Beach, Fla., Cheryl Wilson of Beaverton, Ore., and Bill Hayes of Eugene, Ore. She was preceded in death by her parents, Morris Oliver Snortland and Josephine "Midge" Wilson.

I was 17ish when I first met Kay and Cary (1975). Their realness and solid walks with the Lord and down-to-Earth grounding shaped me from then on. Kay's wisdom and kindness was burnished with her wit and trumpeted with her wonderful laugh. She, Cary and their lives were foundational bricks in my life. We are deprived of her company for a short while, but she and Eternity beckon. God's blessing on all that she has gone on before. Imagine that smile and laugh when we see her again.

I have never met anyone like KK. She never said an unkind word to or about anyone. She was full of joy and brought happiness everywhere she was. She loved the Lord with her whole heart, and a friend that can never be replaced. We love you KK!

46 years of friendship. You loved me and my family unconditionally!
The memories just keep running through my mind. I have laughed and I have cried, but most of all I have thanked the Lord over and over again for the wonderful gift of your friendship.
And yes, we will be together in heaven for eternity to celebrate together with friends and family.

My dear friend of over 40 years, I will miss you. I will remember you on our birthdays that sit next to each other, and will be very thankful for all the times we laughed, and laughed! Your joy made us all laugh. I’m so thankful God let us be friends and the gift to work together for 40 years! Can’t wait to see you again so we can laugh and laugh again. My heart is with you Cary, Kymra, Jason and families. I know she will be greatly missed until we are all together again! Love you all.
