Kay was born in Edgecombe County on July 28, 1942 to the late Raymond Land and Margaret Shelton Land. She was an active member of First Baptist Church in Tarboro. She retired from Stocks Elementary School after many years of dedicated service. She was a warm and loving mother, grandmother and friend.  She spent her time serving the Lord, watching her granddaughter grow up, reading, and enjoying camping trips with family.  She was an amazingly devoted and caring person who would do anything for anyone. Her family loved her very much and are confident she is at peace in heaven. She will be greatly missed.
