Born February 28, 1931 in Gassaway, West Virginia, Kay attended Marshall University and began working at the Pentagon where she met and married an Air Force man: Dudley “Pat” Patteson. This life would take them around the world, retiring from the service, and settling in Rockport. She is preceded in death by her husband of fifty-four years: Dudley “Pat” Patteson. Kay leaves behind Linda Grant (sister): and five children: Joyce (Ray), Karen, Lisa (Mike), Cheryl (Rodney), and Paul (Katie). She also leaves behind seven grandchildren: Brandon (Ryan), Dylan (Kimmy), Ashley, Brittney (Brandon), Courtney (Erik), Jordan, and Brayden, as well as six great-grandchildren. They were the light of her life. Kay was like a mother to many others through the years. She was a long-time member of the First Presbyterian Church, and she was instrumental in Steven Ministries, Whooping Crane Strut, the Youth Support Center, and Castaways. She loved and was loved.
