Kay Langdon, 82, passed away at 8:15 p.m. Friday in the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center – Plymouth Campus.
Born at home on April 29, 1936 in Argos, Indiana, she was the daughter of Homer A. and Dorothy Mae (Croy) Personette. She was raised in the Argos/Culver area and graduated with the Culver High School Class of 1954.
Kay had an endless smile and brought laughter to any occasion. Then one evening at the Candy Kitchen in Plymouth, she met a young Thomas V. Langdon and they would marry on July 19, 1958 in St. Michael Catholic Church. They established a loving and joy filled home on Pretty Lake for the past 60 years. There they raised three children: Julie A., Thomas V. Jr. and David J.
Kay had her career start as a flight attendant with American Airlines and then assisted in the daily operation of Pat’s Bar, The Bottle Stop and Professional Caterers in LaPaz. There was no question Kay knew how to treat her customers and staff. She enjoyed cooking, hosting friends and family and simply life on the lake.
