Connie Lee Kay, of Konawa, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019, at her home.

Connie, the daughter of George and Beatrice (Guinn) Haas, was born on Feb. 21, 1953, in Shawnee.

She graduated from Shawnee High School with the class of 1971. After completing high school, she continued her education, receiving an associate’s degree from Hillsdale Freewill Baptist College. She then went to Central State where she earned a bachelor’s degree.

On Dec. 26, 1975, Connie married Quinton Kay in Jenks. Connie kept herself very busy as a preacher’s wife, as the “President of Momma College,” raising her children and maintaining their home.

At the age of 50, Connie went back to school, completing her master’s degree in counseling at East Central University.

Connie loved her family and any time that she could spend with them; the only thing in her life as important as her family was her relationship with Jesus.

Connie was preceded in death by her parents.
