Earl and I (Ruth) Reynolds met Kay through the Order of the Eastern Star. Kay and Earl were Grand Officers together in 1996-1997. Kay was a devoted and sincere Star member and we both have fond memories of her. She loved to joke and have fun. The last time we saw her at a Grand Chapter in Casper, she told us "I'm getting married on November 31st".
Think about that !!! (There is NO November 31st)
Our sincere sympathy to all the family.
