She very much enjoyed reading, playing bridge with friends, and spoiling her great-grandchildren. Kay had an amazing heart and touched everyone that met her. There is no replacing the "Queen" of the family and she will be greatly missed. Surviving are her two sons, F. Michael McKenney,lI, and Richard J. McKenney (Carrie) both of Fort Wayne. Also surviving is her best friend, Frederick Michael McKenney of Hilton, NY; 1 granddaughter, and 2 great-grandchildren who she loved deeply and saw often.
