Mrs. Sax was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church. Kay was an avid Cardinals and Billikens fan, as well as a fan of all sports, music, theatre, and other activities in which her children and grandchildren participated.
She enjoyed playing board and card games, especially with her grandchildren and loving caregivers. She never met a stranger and would talk your ear off if you’d let her.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Robert G. Sax, whom she married on May 5, 1959, and who died February 19, 2004; a son, Donald Sax who died in July 2022; and her parents, George and Alma, nee Bertke, Sandheinrich.
She is survived by two sons, Jerry Sax and Ron Sax; three daughters, Barbie (John) Duncan, Jean (Gordon) Meyer, and Mary Jo (Jim) Moehle; a daughter-in-law Mary Kay Eise Sax; 13 grandchildren, Megan (Jay) Peters, Ryan (Megan) Sax, Alan (Stephanie) Sax, Ian Sax, Andrew Sax, Josh (Mikayla) Duncan, Emilye (Nick) Lombardo, Marty Meyer, Miles Meyer, Garrett Meyer, Jack Moehle, Sidney Moehle, and Gus Moehle; and seven great-grandchildren, Henry and Ella Peters, Callie and Jana Sax, and Maria, Scottie and Jesse Duncan.
