Alta Kay Hatfield, born on July 15, 1941, in Freeport, Texas, gracefully departed this world on November 11, 2023, in Moore, Oklahoma. Kay was united in marriage with her beloved Lewis Hatfield, a union that now continues beyond Earthly bounds as she joins him in heavenly rest. Their love story echoes in eternity as they will be rest together at the Moore City Cemetery.
A woman of many passions, Kay found joy in the simple pleasures of life. Her love for reading was matched only by her zest for travel, exploring each state in the comfort of her RV alongside Lewis. Her nimble fingers were deft with a needle and thread, crafting beautiful creations that mirrored her creative soul. Scrapbooking became a cherished pastime, preserving cherished memories that she held dear. Yet, her greatest source of happiness lay in the embrace of her family. The laughter shared with her grandkids, the adventures embarked upon with her daughters, and the Saturdays devoted to her son, Mike, whom she admired for stepping into the role of the family's anchor after Lewis's passing in 2019. Kay was not only a matriarch but a guiding light, instilling resilience and fortitude in her children. Her tough love, while sometimes misunderstood, was the pillar upon which her family's strength was built. In the face of heartbreak that marked the family in the past decade, Kay's unwavering guidance and wisdom were the steady compass guiding them through the storm. A woman of remarkable intelligence, Kay empowered her children to stand tall and self-reliant, ensuring they were equipped to navigate life's challenges without dependency. Her lessons, though stern at times, were a testament to her unwavering belief in their ability to thrive. Alta Kay Hatfield's passing leaves a void impossible to fill, yet her indomitable spirit lives on in the resilience of her family. Her legacy of strength, love, and fortitude will endure through the generations she nurtured and guided. Rest in eternal peace, dear Kay, knowing that your impact on those you loved will echo through time.
