Kay grew up and went to school in Kelseyville. After graduating high school, Kay attended Shasta College in Redding, CA. She then moved to San Francisco, where she was employed at Baker & Hamilton. It was there that Kay met the love of her life, Jimmy Ridgeway. The two were soon married and the couple moved back to Kelseyville to raise their two sons, Tim and Kenny.

Kay was always active in the community and she was a member of Rebekah's and The Native Daughters of the Golden West. Kay had many friends and she held them close to her heart.
