Sandra Kay Stubbs was born in 1941 to parents William Foreman “Bill” Stubbs and Alice Townsend Stubbs in Amarillo, Texas. In 1946 the Stubbs moved to the family homestead located 5 miles north of Alanreed. Kay and older brother Bob enjoyed all the McClellan Creek farm had to offer. A young tomboy, Kay preferred horses to dolls and was a true cowgirl, participating in barrel racing and breakaway roping. After graduating McLean High School in 1959, Kay used her beauty and grace to become an airline hostess and later owned “Kay’s Boutique” in Borger for many years before moving to Amarillo and becoming a real estate agent.
In 1985 she married her best friend and true love, Jerry McMennamy, and recently celebrated 30 wonderful years together. She and Jerry traveled extensively and made new friends at every stop. Avid polka dancers, she and Jerry attended polka dances all over the country.
In 1990 Jerry and Kay moved back to the family homestead in Alanreed and became members of McLean Methodist Church family. They also enjoyed being members of the dance committee at the McLean Country Club.
“Kato”, as she was known to her family, taught all of us how very important it is to love one another. A Cheerful spirit & wonderful lady, she led by example and her radiant smile will be missed by all who knew her.
Kay was preceded in death by her parents and beloved Aunt Beryl, as well as her son Wade and her brother Robert Lee Stubbs.
Kay is survived by her husband Jerry McMennamy of Amarillo; a niece, Lee Erin Koehler and children of Canyon; nephews, Eric Scott Stubbs of Dallas and Robert Theron Stubbs and children of Corpus Christi; stepchildren Lynn McMennamy and wife Teresa; Carrie Johnson and husband Tommy of Amarillo; and Crissie Wisdom and husband Kirk of Houston; 7 grandchildren, 1 great grandson and special sister in law Emma Pechtel Stubbs & family.
