Kay Massey, 54, a longtime resident of Carlsbad, walked into Heaven, on brand new legs, July 25, 2022, after a very long battle.
Kay was born to Jerry and Sonia Spencer, on December 12, 1967, in the American Samoa.
Kay overcame many struggles in her life, from being hit by a truck at only 4 years old and told she would never walk (but she did!), to being a homeless teenager, living on the streets in a big city, to severe PTSD from a rescue/recovery call as an EMT.
After school, Kay worked as a first responder. She had a passion for helping others, and loved being an EMT. Her heart was pure gold, and she would give money she didn't have, or the only food she did have, to someone in need. That saying, "she would give you the shirt off her back," was never more true, than for Ms. Kay. She actually took her shirt off, once, and gave it to someone else!
Kay met and fell hard for the love of her life, Curtis Massey. They even married on Valentine’s Day, and shared 25 years together. Curt became instant Dad to Kay's young daughter, Amber Kay. A year later, they were blessed with their son, Andrew.
Kay's passion in life was sharing the love of Jesus with all she met. Her greatest desire was for everyone she loved to know they would spend eternity in Heaven, when this life, on Earth, is over.
Kay is survived by her husband, Curtis, of their home; son Andrew, his wife, and their son Andrew Jr., of Carlsbad; stepdaughter, Toni, of Clovis; brother Craig and wife, of Albuquerque; sister Sharon, of Texas; sister Sherry and husband, of Wyoming; her beloved grandsons Jeremiah and Sebastián of Carlsbad, and her best friend, and partner in crime, Nita.
She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Amber, and step daughter, Samantha.
We would like to thank the ICU nurses for the great care Kay received, and can't begin to thank Enhabit Hospice, for getting our Ms. Kay Kay home, where she wanted to be, and pain & seizure free. Luisa, Jessica, and the whole team are true angels!
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local food bank, or homeless shelter, in her honor.
