Kay grew up in Uniontown and moved to Youngstown, Ohio after marrying her high school sweetheart, the late Alfred Rose.

She was in awe of her two great-grandsons who love sports as much as she did.
Preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Alfred, she is survived by her three children, Sharon (Brian) Logue, Susan (Jerry) Rose-Thomas, Allyn (Phyllis); 5 grandchildren, Adam, Michele, Stephanie, Allyson and Kevin; and 2 great-grandsons.
