Anna Kaye McKamey, 83, of Augusta, Ga., passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016.
Born July 6, 1933 in Greencastle, Kaye was the daughter of Glenn and Nellie Bock Flint. She married the love of her life Robert McKamey on Nov. 6, 1953 in Greencastle, where they celebrated almost 61 years of marriage before his death in 2014.
Kaye attended both Clinton Center and Greencastle High School where she graduated as a member of the class of 1951. Kaye was an outgoing person who “never met a stranger” and kept up with her family and old friends, most recently through e-mail and Facebook.
Kaye is descended from early pioneers of Putnam County and grew up on the beautiful family farm in Clinton Township owned by her parents. She and Bob built a home very close to her childhood home and lived there for many years before Bob’s transfer to Miami by Lone Star Cement in 1979. They lived in Hialeah, Fla., until his retirement, after which they moved north.
