Kay McClain Kutis passed away to her eternal reward on May 26, 2024.

She was born in Dallas on September 18, 1950, to Floyd R. McClain and Beth Ray (Speck) McClain. She attended Adams Junior High in Grand Prairie, where she served as assistant librarian and graduated with straight As and high honors and a lifelong interest in world history. Kay was active in youth fellowship at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Grand Prairie.

After attending college, she was a buyer for Neiman Marcus for ten years for their specialty international delicatessen, a job she enjoyed. Later she joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as a research librarian where she provided tremendous support to the bank’s economists.  She retired in 2010.

Throughout her life, she especially enjoyed drawing and music, especially classical music. Kay was also a skilled seamstress. As a very petite person, she found it difficult to find clothing in her size After a neighbor taught her to sew, she was able to make her own fashionable clothes. She was also proud of her Scottish heritage, and she loved dogs, especially miniature schnauzers. Her friends remember her as a very kind, quiet person.

She met her husband-to-be, Marian Kutis in 1990 on the dating site Together, because they were both determined not to remain single. They were married on her birthday in 1993 in Grand Prairie’s First Presbyterian Church. They moved to Richardson in 1997 and joined Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church where they were regular worship service attendees, and she attended CCPC’s Women’s Bible Study.

Kay is survived by her husband Marian, her Aunt Phyllis Speck, several cousins in Texas and Oklahoma, and her beloved schnauzer Phoebe. She was preceded in death by her parents and her older sister Donna Peacock.
