Obituary of Judith Christine Kay

Judith Christine Kay of St. Petersburg passed away peacefully in her sleep early on January 7th, 2024.  She was 82 years old.  Judy was born in Pawtucket, RI, traveled around the United States during her marriage to John until she returned to St. Petersburg.  She was a graduate of Rhode Island School of Nursing and practiced nursing for many years.  She changed careers to banking until her retirement years.

She is survived by her brother, Don (Barbara) Prior, her daughters, Diane (David) Wandel and Cheryl (Tim) Montanari, her grandchildren Cristina (John) Peckham, Josh (Kayla) Montanari, Chloe Montanari and Melissa Wandel. 

She was a wonderful loving mother and grandmother (aka Meme).  She loved to spend time with her grandkids, doing crafts, playing games and taking them on field trips to interesting places. She shared her childhood experiences with them telling stories through pictures and items she collected. 

Her ministry was making handmade cards.  She enjoyed making cards for her family and friends on special occasions and made cards for those who were sick and needed encouragement.  She spent countless hours making the right card for each person often adding scripture from the Bible.   Each card was unique and matched the individuals likes and personality.  

She enjoyed family time, hanging out with her friends, and watching the news.  She was an avid doll collector. Everyday she completed the crossword puzzle in the paper, the Wordle and some Sudoku puzzles to keep her brain active. She will always be remembered for her Christmas stockings and fun ways of gift giving.  

She was an active member of Faith Covenant Church of St. Petersburg.  She belonged to several church groups, Pryme Tymers, and Ladies Small Group, where she made wonderful friends. She was known around the church and the community for her smile.  

Her favorite Bible verse was.  

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your path straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

She will be forever missed by all that knew her.
