Kay Joyce (Snider) Karl was born on November 8, 1938 to Kenneth and Josephine (Jamison) Snider on a homestead south of Paxton, SD. Kay graduated from Gregory High School in 1957.
On June 1, 1957 Kay was united in marriage to Elmer Karl in Gregory. To this union three children were born—Michael, Cindi, and Sandi. Kay was a lifelong partner in Karl’s TV and Appliance with her husband Elmer for the next 57 years.
Kay’s greatest joy was family—three children, five grandchildren, two loved as grandchildren, and five great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends were the light of her life.
Kay and Elmer enjoyed traveling to so many amazing places around the world. She enjoyed reading, playing cards, all things musical and theater, New Orleans jazz, champagne, (and we have to mention shopping—gifts for friends and family!), her beloved birthday group, and “red hat” friends.
Kay passed away unexpectedly on March 23, 2015.
