Kay Thomas
Janyth Kay Thomas, 70, of Everett, was called home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 4th, 2018 with her family at her side.

She was born Monday, May 5th, 1947 at her family home in Little Rock, Arkansas, a daughter of the late Max Merritt and Florence Ruby Lei (Downs) Clem.

She is survived by her daughter Lisa M. (Thomas) Shaw and husband Dale B. Shaw of Everett,
a grandson Jarrett T. Brantner of Everett,

Three sisters,
Marsha Helsel and husband Bruce Helsel of Williamsburg,
Norma White and husband Jay White of Bedford,
Maxine Sundstrom and husband Dennis Sundstrom of Michigan,

Three brothers,

Mark Merritt and wife Jeannie of Concord, North Carolina, and many loving cousins, nieces, nephews and their families.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in passing away by a sister Eileen Merritt and a brother Max Merritt, Jr.

Kay enjoyed attending Church with her friends at many different churches in the Everett area. She was a graduate of Everett Southern Joint High School, Class of 1965 and then worked at clerk at the former G.C. Murphy variety store in Everett.

Kay was then asked to come to work at the First National Bank (the Cardinal Bank) in Everett, where she was a bookkeeper and check processor. She then worked as a clerk at both Lowers Pharmacy in Everett and the Everett True Value hardware store.
