Margaret Kay Barnette "Kay" Reaser passed away January 23, 2018, at the age of 79.
A native of Bartley, WV, she was born in Welch, WV, on March 30, 1938, the daughter of the late C.E. "Duck" and Monnie Spivey Barnette, and was preceded in death by her husband Emory J. "Buddy" Reaser.
She is survived by her son, Michael Howard Reaser, of Vancouver, BC, Canada, and his life partner Thomas Kearney Maher of County Dublin, Ireland; her sister Carol Bowman Zimmerman of Port St. Lucie, FL; her sister-in-law Rosanna Reaser of Princeton, WV; and many other beloved relatives and friends.
A former teacher in Mercer County, WV, Montgomery County, MD, and Frankfort, KY, Kay gave up a career in the space industry to raise a family and spent most of her life as a devoted mother and wife.
In accordance with her wishes, there was no memorial service.
In memory of Kay and her love of reading, the family requests donations to your local library or youth reading group, or perhaps Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, 111 Dollywood Lane, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863.
