Obituary for Carolyn "Kay" Breig

Carolyn "Kay" Breig
Carolyn “Kay” Breig died peacefully surrounded by family on March 21, 2017 at St. Luke Hospice House at the age of 81. Her strong faith released her soul in peace to the Lord.
Kay is survived by her husband William Breig, daughters Kelly Vickers Hardin (Greg), Jami Vickers Redfearn (David), and grandchildren Maci Kay, Lilli, Jack Flanigan and Josh Redfern. Sister Linda Nichols and nephews Wade (Karen) and Craig Nichols
Kay was born on July 27, 1935 in Moline Kansas to Ione and Albert Eckert. Kay began her teaching career in 1955 continuing her career in Springfield until she retired in 1991. In 1983 Kay married Bill Breig and they enjoyed many happy years together traveling and spending time with the grand kids. After retirement Kay continued to impact many people’s life through countless hours of volunteering with Stevens Ministries, she helped organize the Caring People ministry for unwed mothers in Springfield and was especially helpful with the annual SEAS Harvest Home Festival. Kay loved music and loved to sing. She volunteered with the Children’s choir along with singing in the church contemporary choir and sang in the Messiah project choir for many years. She was a faithful attendee of BSF Bible Study Fellowship, playing bunko and bridge and lunch with her Disney Retired Teachers Group (DRTS).
In 2010 Kay developed heart disease and spent many days in hospitals in Barcelona and Dallas Texas. On April 5, 2011 Kay received an LVAD device from the amazing team at St Luke’s Heart Hospital in KC. She was determined to succeed with the transplant to have more time with her family. Kay became an ambassador for the LVAD helping make changes to the LVAD program, educating people on the device and mentoring new patients. The family would like to thank the incredible staff of St. Luke's Hospital and especially Amy and Karen with the LVAD team.
