Sara Robinson Kay, 91, of Bay Village, OH, formerly of Greensburg, PA, passed away October 7, 2022. Born November 24, 1930, in Allenhurst, GA, she was the daughter of Walter and Margaret Robinson and was raised in Thunderbolt, GA, just outside of Savannah with her brother, Frank, and sister, Barbara.
After high school, Sara worked as a secretary at Fort Stewart, a United States Army post. Sara promised her parents that she would never date an enlisted man until she met her future husband, Jack Kay, who was not only enlisted but a Yankee. Jack and Sara were married in Savannah, GA on Jan. 17th, 1953.
Sara worked for 24 years as an executive secretary for Overly Manufacturing Company. A devoted member of Christ’s Church, Greensburg for 40 years, Sara was active in Stephen’s Ministries. She was also an active member of the Ligonier Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. A lover of books and an avid bridge player until her eyes could no longer view the cards, she was delighted when one of her children finally embraced the game. After her first grandchild was born, Sara decided she wished to be called GG (Gorgeous Grandmother) and so she was.

In 2015, she moved to Bay Village, Ohio to be closer to her daughter, Valerie, and her granddaughters.
