While attending the University of Arkansas, she was a member of the Delta Delta Delta Sorority. She went to Louisiana Tech University and got her master’s in counseling in 1986. She taught at Airline High School and Cope Middle School. Kay was a member of the Hoe and Hope Garden Club, along with the Birthday Club. She was on the board of directors at Greenacres Place Townhouses for ten years. She was a very accomplished woman, and most of all, she was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend. Kay was a kind-hearted soul that touched each person she came in contact with through her years. She always had a smile on her face and lit up the room with her laugh and joyful spirit. Kay was a fighter and fought till the end. She is going to be greatly missed by all.

She is survived by her daughter, Karen Stough, and husband, Danny; son, Jeff Martin, and wife, Abe; grandchildren, Lily Kay Bergren, Ian Martin, and Ike Martin; brother, Bob FitzGerald, and wife, Patsy; and sister, Patricia Coleman.
