Kay is affectionately known as "Munker," which is a combination of the words "Monkey," and "Mother" and speaks to her quirky sense of humor. She grew up in Crooked Creek, trapping muskrat for their fur on Tauscher's Pond, among other feminine pursuits.
She received a B.A. in English from Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown and then attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, where she met Gerry.
Later she moved to Texas, where she has lived for the past 50 years, and began renovating and flipping houses long before it became popular. She enjoyed traveling the world with her husband, and socializing with her many friends. She will be deeply missed.
