In memory of

Born in Atlantic City, NJ, to Joseph and Catherine King, she was predeceased by her devoted husband, Leroy, who she met at an Army Auxiliary Dance during his stateside leave from Europe during World War II. They married in 1945. Kay graduated from Bartram High School with honors and her thirst for knowledge and initiative to learn one new fact each day was her passion. She was fascinated by history and she loved to travel. Kathleen was an animal lover, having cats and dogs throughout her life, but most of all she sincerely loved her family. Kay worked for the New Jersey State Police Headquarters in West Trenton, NJ, as a supervisor in the identification and records unit. She was highly regarded and admired by both her subordinates and her supervisors. Kay loved her career so much she stayed there for 47 years, retiring at age 74. She was proud of having one of the longest tenures in the department's history. Kathleen is survived by her daughter, Eileen J. Werst; two grandchildren, Jeffrey R. Land and Erika K. Land; three great-grandchildren, Aleas Martinez, Ameer Martinez and John Jeffrey Land. She is also survived by two sisters-in-law, M.
