Kay A. Jack died Dec. 28.
Born in Jefferson on Aug. 8, 1943, to parents Paul and Hazel Leichsenring, she spent her childhood on a farm near Paton.
She married on July 13, 1963, and then provided military community support as an Air Force officer’s wife from 1964-87.
After attending schools in Iowa, Idaho, California, South Dakota and Nebraska, she earned her registered nurse degree. She worked at Papillion Manor for several years and later at Omaha’s Urology Center as a surgical nurse.
As a resident of Rapid City, S.D., she will truly miss the beauty and serenity of the Black Hills; and the hills will miss her.
She is survived by her husband, Gary Jack; daughters Kim Denny and Michele Jack-Love; son Bradley Jack; nine grandchildren and one great-granddaughter; sister Carol Grasso; and niece Brenda Grant, of Chattanooga, Tenn.
A celebration of life was held Jan. 3 at Kahler-Dolce Mortuary, Papillion, Neb., with interment in the Omaha National Cemetery.
Memorials are suggested to the American Parkinson Disease Association.
