Kay Wrigley Wynn, 77, a resident of Lake Charles, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on August 18, 2020, in a local hospital.
Known as Mom, Nanny, or Kay, she will be forever remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, devoted wife, and loyal friend. Mrs. Wynn graduated from SOWELA Tech with a Secretarial Certificate and continued her studies at McNeese State University, the University of Houston, and the College of Mainland in Texas City, Texas where she earned an associate degree in English. She was an active member of Sales Street Baptist Church, where she was proud to teach Sunday School. She was a woman of unwavering faith. Kay owned a well-worn bible and could quote it nearly line by line. It was important to her and her husband to lead people to Christ, she selflessly devoted herself to the care of her beloved husband Billy in his last days. Nanny loved spending time with her family, and her family was the apple of her eye. Mrs. Wynn was an avid reader and loved to work outside in her garden area. Along with caring for her husband and family, Mrs. Wynn also worked as a bookkeeper for Theriot, Milford, and Dunn, The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, and finally for Gray Plantation.
