Upon graduation she quickly passed the Certified Public Accountancy examinations.After college Kay worked for a few accounting firms and corporate accounting departments until she started a practice that catered to the needs of nonprofit organizations. At her death she served as the Director of Finance at the Homeless Alliance, a job and mission that she truly loved.Kay was a loving mother to her son, Kevin Scheller. Kevin met and fell in love with Shannon Sayers and they gave birth to Kay's only grandchild, Mary. Kay thought Mary "hung the moon" and was the smartest granddaughter anyone could ever hope for. She loved to brag about Kevin, Shannon and Mary to anyone within earshot. Kay went to any event Mary did except hunting, even grandmothers have limits.She is survived by her brother, Joe Ray, and his family – Peggy, Luke, Becca and Libby. She is also survived by her cousins Charles Towe (Marjean), David Towe (Mary), Glen Ray (Marsha), Jan Meeks (Mike), Fay Ray, Shirley Miller, Bob Scheer (Pat), and Kim McCarley (Donnie).
