Kay was born Fonda Kathleen Hopkins, daughter of Heine and Katie (Carberry) Hopkins, on May 22, 1923, in Aredale, Iowa. She graduated from Aredale High School.

Aunt Kay was as close to me as my mom when I was little. I spent so much time with them that sometimes I forgot where home really was. we drifted in the last years but always was like we never were apart when we did see each other. She and Pres were always there for me and I loved them more than I can explain. So happy she is reunited with Pres and her parents and Donavon. what a long wait but so worth it. See you later Aunt Kay. Love you.

She was the best friend and second mom anyone could want. She treated our kids like Grandkids. The time she had eye surgery in Mason City, I went in to deliver my youngest at Hampton last minute early. Pres took me in,then went back and took her in for hers , then came back to see the baby on the way home. Next day complications sent us to Mason City. We were trying to find her room, she heard our voice. She told Pres, "that sounds like the kids but they are in Hampton." Was she surprised to see me. Love her to the Moon and back.
