She is preceded in death by her parents, siblings and husbands Don Schwinghammer and Stan Jordan. Our family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the staff of Peachtree Assisted Living and Comfortworks Hospice for their kindness and care. With a wink, a tight hug and a Diet Coke we say goodbye with love. Graveside service will be 1 pm Friday May 12, 2017 at the Utah Veterans Memorial Park, 17111 South Camp Williams Rd, Bluffdale, followed by a celebration of Kay's life at the home of daughter Linn after services.
