Kay was such a kind lady. I always enjoyed visiting with her. My sympathy to the family.

Barbara Chown on Apr 12, 2023

We offer our condolences to the family of Kay Hill Twitty. Kay was a dear, treasured friend. She cared for her friends the same way she tended her beautiful day lilies with tender care, understanding, and love. I greatly enjoyed the times we spent together in small groups and learned a great deal working with her in her gardens. We will make a monetary donation in her memory to our church. We keep your family in our prayers.
Dick and Barb Chown and family

With love from Adriana, Adam, Mary, Steven and Bet on Apr 12, 2023

We will carry your love and memories with us always and forever
