Kay Ann Niebaum passed away on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
Kay was born on December 15, 1940 in Kansas City, Mo, the daughter of William and Ruby Denman.
Kay made several moves in her life before retiring in Ft. Myers Florida, where she loved living a Florida lifestyle.
Kay worked for the Bendix Corporation (now Honeywell) for several years where she traveled extensively across the country. She spent a year in Albuquerque New Mexico and fell in love with the Southwest, especially the people.
Kay was a very curious person who sought answers to all of life’s questions. She always wanted to know how things worked and would educate herself about all things she found interesting. She was an avid reader of spiritual books and enjoyed meditation.
Kay loved the Lake of the Ozarks. She moved to the lake and had a second career where she started a lawn mowing and Property Management business. She loved water sports and spent time skiing, boating, fishing and floating in the water. She has been quoted saying “I work hard so I can play hard!”
She bought a 5th wheel trailer and spent her winters exploring Florida. She came to love south Florida, especially Miami and the Florida Keys. She eventually moved to Ft. Myers where she thoroughly enjoyed her life there.
Kay defined a successful life as “consciousness of one who expresses God through their actions, and expresses God’s love for ones fellowmen and learns to accept others just as they are.”
Kay was preceded in death by her Grandson Jared Crowe and her parents William and Ruby Denman. Kay is survived by her Fiance Jerry Wilbur of Ft Myers, FL; Daughters Tina Alewel and husband Michael of Lee’s Summit, MO, and Laura Prall and husband Rodney of Lee’s Summit, MO; Grandsons Derek Fulte and wife Kim of Blue Springs, MO, and Perry Alewel of Newport News, VA; Granddaughter Chelsea Tyler and husband Grant of Warrensburg, MO; Brother Bill Denman and wife Mary of Greenwood, MO; Sister Mary Ellen Paskon of Peculiar, MO; Great Granddaughters Harper Fulte and Millie Tyler
