    To a great aunt, who was a big part of our lives. Always the caregiver for Uncle John, Mom, Bubba and others she shared in her assisted living home. That love was given to Dennis and family who was always there for her. She will compllete her siblings gathering in God's heavenly garden. We will miss her.
    Love Mickey and Debbie.

    I will miss Aunt Kay very much! I am thankful for growing up spending many Sundays watching Lawrence Welk and Hee Haw with her and Uncle John. She showed such love and care to everyone and made sure we were fed - especially chicken soup. Sleep well, the hostess with the mostest! Love always!

    Auntie Kay, you are the last to take your place

    Auntie Kay you are the last to take your place
    among the original Lepo clan. I will always hold wonderful memories of family reunions at DiDi and BaBa home in Powhatan. You and your husband John added to the character of the Lepo enjoyment of life. You were a fine Mother to Dennis and a blessing of a caregiver to BaBa.
