Following their marriage in 1946, Kay and Herb moved to State College, where he began his road building business in 1947. They resided in State College for the remainder of their lives, and after 1973 they enjoyed winters in Tucson, Ariz. From 1990 to 1999, Kay served on the Cedar Crest College Board of Trustees, and she is a Life Member of the Alumnae Association. She was a member for many years in The Antiquists' Society.
