Lillie Catherine Bryan
July 14, 1942 ~ August 13, 2021

On Friday Morning, Kay Bryan left the pain behind and danced into heaven on two good legs as the birds sang in celebration.

She was blessed beyond measure to spend 60 years of marriage with the love of her life, Windell Bryan. The two shared a love of life and family.

Her children were an absolute delight in her life bringing her so much joy and comfort. She is survived by her husband, Windell Bryan; sons, Kevin Bryan (Tricia Bryan) and Brad Bryan (Melinda Bryan); daughter, Wendy Hadley.

And because two people fell in love, Windell and Kay’s family has grown to include 7 grandchildren: Kealy Wilson (Ben Wilson), Savannah Bryan, Morgan Bryan, Caleb Bryan (Jess Bryan), Zachary Bryan, Mike Hadley and Emma Hadley. She also has four great-grandchildren: Lilly Wilson, Luke Wilson, Hayden Wilson and Ivy Bryan.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Warner Cooper McMullen and Wiloneze Virginia Day McMullen.

She is survived by one brother, Joe McMullen and three beloved sisters, Ginger Moore (Edward Moore), Sara Fountain (William Fountain), Phyllis Smith as well as sister by choice, Virginia Newman. She will also be missed by a multitude of nieces, nephews, and friends.

Her smile was always contagious and will live on in those she loved so dearly.

Please join us in celebrating the life of Kay Bryan at Living Water Church in Hendersonville, NC on Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 4pm. The family will receive friends for one hour beginning at 3pm.

Out of respect for the family, we ask all guests to wear a mask when inside and join us online if you are sick or have been exposed recently.
