Kay graduated from San Angelo Central High School and attended Kilgore Junior College where she became a Rangerette. This is where she met the love of her life Richard Cyrus Mooney, Jr. (He played football for Kilgore) Kay & Richard married on January 21, 1966. They fast moved to Miami, Florida where she had her first daughter Karol-Ann on July 5, 1966.

Kay and her family settled in Arlington, Tx. so she could raise her girls.
Kay was a stay at home mom for many years and then became involved in the community. She was a Lancer Cheerleader Sponsor, with her best friend Linda Roberts. She opened up La Petite Rhythm Chateau (L.P.R.C) Dance Studio in 1976, where she shared her love of dance that impacted so many lives. Ms. Kay is how her students will always remember her.
Kay sold her dance studio in 1986 so she could enjoy her girls who where growing up too fast. These last years she worked behind the scenes for her daughter Michele’s insurance agency working cancellations and being that soft spoken courtesy caller that made a huge impact on her business.
