March 6, 1948 ~ January 27, 2024 (age 75) 75 Years Old


Linda "Kay"Mathis, 75,passed away January 27, 2024 at 2 AM,losing her long fight with a chronic illness.

She was born March 6, 1948 ,at Lakeland General Hospital, to Lawton and Geneva Richardson. Kay lived in Mulberry FL. with her parents, grew up and went to school .She pursued her education at Jones College where she received her certificate as a medical secretary.

Always conscientious and eager to learn, she began her career at Peace River Center. The center grew as did Kay, with her eventually becoming the Medical Records Information Management Systems Coordinator. Kay remained in this position until her retirement in March 2013, "claiming" that she held the record for longest employed.

Kay was a beloved mother to Chris and Kim, grandmother to Jordin, Kaleigh and Karsyn, great-grandmother, partner, friend and loving dog mom. She loved spending time with her family and friends, shopping, trying new restaurants, and trips to the beach and mountains.

Although many times she felt poorly or in pain she rarely complained, ready to go, not wanting to hold anyone back. She was a very private person keeping her pain and heartache to herself not wanting to bring anyone down.

I was very blessed to have been her partner for the last 14 years, and like everyone who knew her, loved her. She is truly missed.
