Kay F. (Downey) Thomas

July 22, 1937 — September 25, 2019

Kay F. Thomas, 82, formerly of Crooksville, peacefully passed away in her sleep in the early morning of Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

She was born in her childhood home on Heskett Hill, the middle daughter, to the late, Dale and Pauline (nee: Harper) Downey on July 22, 1937.

She worked for a few of the local potteries and spent her last working years as the long-time receptionist at Hairport II Salon. A true Christian woman, Kay praised her Lord at the Unity Church of the Nazarene in Roseville. Kay’s greatest joys in life were her family and her dogs. Although she had worked outside the home, Kay’s true passion was caring for her home where she raised her children. A very friendly woman, Kay was a social butterfly and loved to dance and have fun and will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Her family takes great comfort in knowing Kay is now redecorating her heavenly mansion
