Eunice Ila McElveen Kay was born August 3, 1933 in Burr Ferry to William Haywood McElveen and Ethel
Powers McElveen. She passed away on May 1, 2019, in Alexandria, LA at the age of 85. Our mother had the biggest heart in the world. She loved everyone. She always had an open door, everyone was welcomed, and treated like one of her own. She spent her
lifetime devoted as a mother and grandmother. She stood by her convictions, and did not mind correcting when wrong, but always did so out of love and care. She was married to her sweetheart Clinton for 71 years. They were each other’s right hand.
Through the good times and the bad, they were always there for each other through it all. She was a lifelong member of her church, Freedom Rest Baptist, and was involved in setting up Christmas programs, bible classes, and so much more. She was a
caregiver for the elderly for many years. She always cherished having big family gatherings and being able to cook for everyone. Our mother was a sassy, social butterfly and she will be missed greatly. May her family and friends be at peace knowing
that she is resting in the arms of Jesus now.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings, infant son, Donald, and infant granddaughter, Meleny.
She is survived by her loving husband of 71 years, Von Clinton Kay;
sons, Von S. Kay and wife Georgetta of Evans, LA; William Kay and wife Cindy of Burkeville, TX; Roger Kay of Burkeville, TX; Michael Kay and wife Helen of Burrferry, LA.; daughters, Vondal Blackmon and husband Roy of Burrferry, LA; Ila Darlene Craft
and husband Robert of Leesville, LA; Patricia Grogan and husband Keith of St. Angelo, TX; Sheryl Jarrell and husband Danny of Burkeville, TX.; 25 grandchildren; 40 great-grandchildren; 12 great-great-grandchildren and a host of nieces and
