Pamela "Kay" Stutts Obituary

Pamela Kay Stutts, a lively, spirited red head, known for her love of adventure, musical talent, and dedication to her family, friends and faith, passed away on February 12, 2024, at the age of 63, in Tyler, Texas.  A visitation will be held from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Friday, February 23, 2024, at Hiett’s LyBrand Funeral Home in Wills Point.

Born on October 31, 1960, in Tyler, Kay was the daughter of Donald Pace Hackney and Patricia Gail McDaniel Hackney.  She grew up in Canton and from the beginning was known as the lively, energetic, and fun-loving member of the “Hackney girls”.  She graduated from Canton High School and forever following her passion, studied music at Tyler Junior College.  She moved to Wills Point and became known as “Miss Kay” by so many children to whom she taught piano lessons or led in the Russell Memorial Methodist Church’s children’s and handbell choirs.  She nurtured the talents of young musicians with care and enthusiasm, leaving a lasting impact.

Kay was a leader and had a long and successful career in the healthcare industry, starting at Baker Clinic, moving to Terrell State Hospital, then Medical Center at Terrell, and becoming a Human Resource Data Analyst at Baylor Scott and White in Dallas, where she loved her urban era.  She finished back at Terrell State Hospital as a Human Resource Specialist.   Kay amassed numerous friends everywhere she worked and touched.  She had a knack for keeping those friends, whom she dearly loved, close and connected.  Kay loved to travel and to drive.  If she wasn’t in her convertible with hair blowing in the wind; she was on an airplane, creating fun adventures with her girlfriends.

On October 25, 1997, Kay married her soulmate, Kenneth Wayne Stutts, in San Antonio, Texas.  He was the perfect easy-going match to her vivacious spirit, allowing her to shine. Her love of children burst with pride when she became Nana to her granddaughter, Hannah Young, and the beloved fun aunt to Joshua and Kyle Maisel and Andrea and Tyler Jackson, as well as great aunt to Rylan, Spencer, Joshua, Adalyn, Lawson, Londyn, Adelaide, Peyton, Drew, Beck, and Ellie.

Kay is preceded in death by her father, Donald Hackney; parents-in-law, Jake Chester and Mamie Louise Stutts; son-in-law, Carey Dan Young; and brothers-in-law, Douglas Lane Stutts and Roger Alan Pryor.  She is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth Stutts of Wills Point; her daughter, Christine Young of Grand Saline; granddaughter, Hannah Young of Blanco, Oklahoma; mother, Patricia Hackney of Canton; her sisters, Donna Maisel and husband Brett of Nacogdoches, Julie Seymore and husband Gregory of Canton, and Christina Pryor of Canton; as well as extended family and friends.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the children’s ministry at Russell Memorial Methodist Church, Wills Point.
