Kay was born on May 12th, 1944, to Nanella (Lamb) and Patrick Henry in Albany, Georgia. She was a military kid and moved around many times as she was growing up.

Later on in 1985, Kay was in the Big Piney area of Wyoming where she met David Bartlett. They made their way to Paonia, Colorado and they were then married on March 11th, 1989, in Grand Junction, Colorado. They attended Paonia Christian Fellowship. Kay’s chosen career was in counseling. She owned and operated “Advent Counseling” in Paonia and Delta, Colorado. She enjoyed her job and was an avid member of AA and OA. When she wasn’t working, she enjoyed her friends, church family and especially her family. She was a dedicated reader, loved to go hiking and walking. Traveling was also a highlight.
