She grew up in McCook, Neb. She graduated from McCook High School in 1958. She married Dean Michel on Aug. 3, 1959.

Kay is survived by her spouse of 61 years, Dean Michel; children, Terry (Laura) Michel and daughter, Cindy (Tim) McAdam. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Sam Ewing, Ashley (Michael) Rushfeldt and great-granddaughter, Olivia Rushfeldt; her brother, Ray (Nancy) Ulrich of Florida; sisters, Mary Lou Ross of Trenton, Neb., Heddy Reiners of Holdredge, Neb., and Virginia Mowe of McCook; and several nieces and nephews.
