Life Legacy

Kay Laffey Rogers, 71, of Texarkana, TX passed from this earth on November 27, 2012 at her home. Ms. Rogers was born October 20, 1941 in Des Moines, Iowa to Alvin and Edna Laffey. She was a homemaker and a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

“Grandma Kay Kay”, as she was known by many, was a wonderful cook. She was a foodie and loved to share recipes. She was a movie buff and enjoyed reading about a variety of interesting things. Scrabble, crossword puzzles and card games fueled her competitive spirit. She normally came out the victor. Kay also loved sitting outdoors and enjoying her surroundings. She had an uncanny ability to revive most any wavering plant. Grandma Kay Kay spoiled her grand dogs, Gracie, Missy, Bodie , Maddie and Molly, with special treats whenever she took care of them.
Kay will be remembered for her perpetual smile and spunky disposition.
