One of her greatest joys was being “NanNaw”, “Granny”, or “Grandma” to a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters, Rita Peyton and husband, Larry; and Kennda Melick and husband, Owen; and a brother, Corum Evans. Kay was preceded in death by her husband, Tom Groves; her parents; two brothers, Wayne Evans and James Ivan Evans; and two sisters, Becky Austin and Delores Nunley.
