Kaye was born in Wynnewood, Ok and spent her childhood in the area. She moved with her family to Edmond in 1964 and worked as a waitress at the Corner Restaurant where she later met Jim. She was an ambitious small town girl who never met a stranger. Kaye began a career as a secretary for Urban Renewal. This led to a position for the City of Edmond where she worked in the Police Department and eventually became the Assistant City Treasurer for the City of Edmond where she spread joy until she retired in 2006. Many years ago, she and Jim were members of the Edmond Jaycees, a leadership organization that guided members to community service.
She dedicated herself to providing her family with not only the material things they needed, but more important, a character and moral foundation that she believed would carry them through life no matter the path they chose. She enjoyed family vacations, watching her children and grandchildren’s numerous sporting events and activities, as well as spending weekends dining and dancing with friends. But she loved being in her home more than anything. Kaye leaves behind many family and friends and a legacy of love and devotion to each and every one of them that will live on in their memories of her.
