On June 2, 1978 Kay made the most important commitment of her life when she dedicated herself to Jehovah God and symbolized that by water baptism. For over 40 years she served faithfully as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and by her exemplary course of life she gave evidence that the most important thing in her life was her service to Jehovah. She was very studious and spent much time in Bible study, and was known primarily as an outstanding teacher of the Holy Scriptures.Kay’s true joy in life was teaching bible students the truth of Jehovah’s will and purpose, directly resulting in the dedication and baptism of multiple students who then became her very own spiritual brothers and sisters.
On December 3, 1983 she made the second most important commitment of her life when she married Joey Steverson. For nearly 35 years the two of them served as a shining example of how a married couple can work hard for Jehovah.Together they worked countless hours helping to construct places of worship for Jehovah's Witnesses across many regions of the United States. They also shared a passion for travel around the world to spend time preaching and worshipping with other Jehovah’s Witnesses in such remote places as Ukraine, Czechoslovakia, and the Republic of Georgia. For a period of time they also served as full-time proclaimers of God’s Kingdom within their home territory.
During their life together Kay personified the capable wife as described in Proverbs 31, and worked hard to apply the Bible's counsel for Christian wives in her daily life. While her physical beauty, smile and southern charm was sure to light up any room, she also possessed an inner beauty as a loyal, loving and hardworking lifelong companion to Joey.
She loved her family deeply and was a true friend to many who knew her.Words cannot express how much she will be missed by her family and all of her many friends. Her steadfast course of faithfulness and courage will continue to be an example to those who had the privilege of knowing her.
In accord with her wishes she was cremated. Cremation services are provided by Hutcheson’s Memorial Chapel and Crematory of Buchanan GA.
