Kay Chadsey, daughter of Verna and Henry Johnson, loving wife of Carl Chadsey, passed away after a battle with lung cancer.
She is survived by her husband, Carl, her brother Larry Johnson, her sons Mark and Eric (with his wife Joy) and her daughters Kathy Tachell (with her husband Jeff) and Shawn Fagalde (wife to Eddie).
