The funeral of Kay Archer took place on Wednesday January 9 at St Peters Church in Woodhall Spa, before burial at Horncastle Cemetery.
Kay was born on January 2 1943 and grew up in Horncastle and Woodhall Spa working in the family fish and chip shop before going on to Art College to study hairdressing.
One of her proudest moments during this time was appearing as an extra in the film ‘The Wild and the Willing’.
At the age of 19 Kay suffered a brain haemorrhage which left her paralysed, however she never complained or felt sorry for herself and always made the most of life. Kay regularly competed in the Rotary Disabled games where she won many trophies and medals of which she was very proud. Kay was known to always take great pride in her appearance making sure her hair and make up were done and showing off her trademark long red nails.
Kay will always be remembered for her love of cowboy hats and would always been seen around Woodhall wearing various one’s of her collection, also Kay would always be decorated for any event or special occasion most recently for the Queen’s Jubilee where she had flags flying from her chair.
Kay was known for being a fun and lively person and its her laughter and sense of humour that she will always be remembered for.
