After working for a number of years, she had surgery for a hip replacement which ended her working career. Eventually she moved into the Tabor Home units were she spent many years involved in the activities at the Tabor Home. She worked on making teddy bears from fur coats until her hands would no longer allow it. She then took on a number of cross stitch and embroidery projects for the Tabor Home. Kay loved to help out at the Tabor shelling peas, cutting up beans and whatever duties they would give her.  She also loved to puzzle and up until her last illness there was always a puzzle on the go. She enjoyed attending the EMMC church and after she was unable to attend, she enjoyed the service held at the Tabor Home with Rev Morris Vincent.
