Kay M. McKinley Crust, 80, of Milesburg, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 18, 2019, at Wynwood House on Bernel Road, State College.

Kay was born on July 6, 1939, in Bellefonte, a daughter of the late Wade A. McKinley and Marcella Green McKinley. On August 11, 1961, she married Ronald R. Crust, who survives along with their daughters Danielle Kay Heverly of Bellefonte and Tamara Tharon Wasson of State College and her four grandchildren Lakhota Steven Heverly, McGwire Kael Heverly, Azlynn Amanda Heverly, and Coen Ayden Wasson.

Kay was a 1957 graduate the Bald Eagle Area School District which was their first graduating class. She was known by her classmates as talented, attractive, always busy, liking people, and her “crowning glory,” which was her red hair. She was involved in G.A.A., Drama, Newspaper and Yearbook Staff, Art, and Cheerleading. Her family will remember her as a feisty red-head that was hardworking and enjoyed socializing with others.

Kay was a member of Milesburg Baptist Church. She cherished her daughters, her grandchildren, her brothers, and her pomeranians. Kay enjoyed planting flowers and would often be seen outside. She loved politics and was also actively involved in the Democratic Party, a member of the Milesburg Boro Committee, and a Milesburg Boro Council member.

Funeral services and burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to CPI at 540 North Harrison Road, Bellefonte, PA 16823, Attention To: Kay McKinley Crust Memorial Scholarship Fund which will go to a student in the Horticulture/Landscape Program because of her love for flowers or the Alzheimer’s Association at 270 Walker Drive Suite 15, State College, PA 16801, to help fund the research needed to stop this disease.

I knew Kay from the time she, my sister (Shirley) and I attended first grade at the Central City school house . My sister and I used to stop at her house in the morning and the three of us walked to school together. Seems she was always eating cornflakes for breakfast and I remember telling her in later years that I could not look at a box of cornflakes without thinking of her. Funny the things you remember. She and my sister usually always sat together at the Milesburg Baptist Church and Kay kept in contact with her (my sister) during her 1 year battle with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. For that I will always be grateful. As they say, "The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not 'get over' the loss of a loved one. You will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to be."

Sincere condolences from our family to yours. Kay was such a great lady. Her puppies had to have been the best fed in Centre County! She made sure to get that meat from Fisher's Store for them! She was always willing to stop and chat, which is not something that everyone has a gift for, but Kay made sure to always say hello. She will be missed. Love, The Butler Family
