Kay's birth name is Laura Lillian Adams.
The child of Roy Stanley & Pearl Cilles Goin Adams, Laura Lillian Adams was born January 26, 1918 in rural Bardwell, Kentucky. She was the second of nine children and was my Dad's sister.
Sometime before my grandfather's death in 1942, she had changed her name to Kay King and was living in Paducah, Kentucky where she had received her beauty college training and operated a successful beauty salon. She lived there until early summer 1958 when she and Charles moved to Mesa due to her painful arthritis. She continued with her business there until she died, reportedly of a brain aneurysm, on October 15, 1974.
She was survived by her eight siblings:
Mabel Lucille Adams Teeters
James Malcolm Adams
Roy Lindell Adams (my father)
Ivy Lena Adams Burd
Jesse Dalton Adams
Eugene Chalmer Adams
Aldon Wilson Adams
Joe Allen Adams
