Dorothy (Dot) Kay, 88 years old, of Red Bank and Palm City, Florida, past away peacefully at home on September 5th 2016.

Born in East Orange, Dot spent her summers at the Jersey Shore where she met the love of her life Jack Kay. They married shortly after she graduated from Keyport High School. They were married almost 65 years and together they raised their two daughters in Lincroft and Rumson.

Dot was a former member of Deal Golf & Country Club, she was a 9 holer, a member of the (Deal Dolls) bowling group and an avid mahjong player which she loved playing with her wonderful group of Deal friends.

Dot loved games and puzzles and started her beloved grandchildren playing at an early age. She was devoted to her loving husband, daughters and grandchildren and was happiest in their company as well as with her pet and companion Pumpkin.

Dot was predeceased by her parents Edward and Florence Brennan, her brother William, her loving husband Jack and her beloved daughter Debra.

She survived by her sister Florence Healy, her beloved daughter Marsha Mullen and her husband Barry, son-in-law Steven Podhaizer, Grandchildren Falynn, Derek, Peter, Abigail, and Michelle and great-grandchildren Makenzie and Carly. As well as many nieces, nephews and loving friends.  A special thank you to her caregivers Ana and her sister Lana who lovingly cared for her over the last two years.

Visitation will be held at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad Street, Red Bank, NJ on Thursday, September 8, 2016, from 4:00 to 7:00PM. Burial will be private.  A celebration of her life will be planned for a later date.
