Kay, as she was known by her friends and family, was born Nov. 11, 1946 in Leroy, New York to Mr. and Mrs. Hahn.

She married the love of her life, Clarance Jones, and merged their lives into one loving family. Kay was primarily a homemaker, known throughout Homer, Alaska as a kind and loving wife, mother and friend. Kay always met everyone, friends and strangers alike, with a big smile and kind words. She loved helping people whenever she could.

Her hobbies included reading, playing online games with her grandchildren and late husband Clarance, and crafting beautiful things. She loved animals and always had a special place in her heart for her cats. The memory of her friendship will not soon be forgotten by those she impacted in her life.

Kay is survived by her children, Neils Cordes, Philip Turner, Roger Jones, Trista Jessee and Deborah Jones as well as her several beloved grand and great-grand children. The family will be having a private service for family and close friends.
