Janie Kay Crenshaw, 73, of Kemp went to her heavenly home April 23, 2021. Kay was born March 8, 1948 in Tulare, Calif., to Archie and Virginia Jordan both of whom preceded her in death along with her brother Archie Leo Jordan and nephew John Marvin Jordan.
Kay was proud of the fact that she was Cherokee and had great pride of her American Indian Heritage. She even volunteered at the Cherokee Nation Museum in Tahlequah, Okla., for some time.
Kay was also a nurse for many years and enjoyed taking care of others. As much as Kay loved to help others, her real passion was getting the privilege of taking care of and completely spoiling, her precious grand and great-grandchildren. Each of them had her wrapped around their fingers and the days spent with them were the best days to Kay.
In her down time, she enjoyed working on her crossword puzzles and word searches. Kay was also an avid reader. Kay even enjoyed listening to country music. She will be truly missed.
Kay is survived by her daughters Virginia Rose Gilbert and Cherry Kay Oleson both of Gatesville, granddaughter Masha Neal (Cory), great-granddaughter Ilana Ruth Neal, great-grandsons Seth Thomas Neal and Ezra Milton Neal all of El Paso, cousin Claudia Cunningham of Kemp, sister-n-law Rachel Jordan of Talequah, Okla., nieces Tina Gillhooley and Sally Jordan along with a host of other beloved family and friends who will miss her dearly.
A funeral service was held April 27, 2021. A graveside service followed at Kemp Cemetery.
