Kaye was a dedicated dog lover and bred Golden Retrievers under the name "Blakeley Goldens." A thoughtful and generous woman, she donated one puppy from every litter as a service dog to help the handicapped. Golden retrievers were her passion, and Kaye made friends quickly, everywhere she went. An avid puzzle hobbyist, Kaye loved to while away her free time constructing difficult puzzles worthy of framing.
