She was born on February 21, 1956 to Calvin Miller and Cathleen Gragg Miller in Raleigh NC.  Through her parents nurturing ways and because of her mother’s health challenges, Kay was a kind and patient care-taker.  She was an alumna of Lees-McRae College, John Tyler Community College, and the Medical College of Virginia.  She turned her passion into her profession, and worked in nursing at hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home health.  She also managed a dental office day to day.  Later she worked at Lowes in the garden center, which allowed her to work with plants and flowers, a passion she shared with her parents.

After her mother passed away, her father Calvin married Katrina Vannoy Miller and added 2 step-sisters Kina Jones and Sandy Gainy.  She is proceeded in death by both her mother Cathy, and step-mother Katrina.

She is also survived by her beloved Miller and Gragg extended family.

The family would like to especially thank the 2nd floor nursing staff at Ashe Memorial Hospital for their unparalleled care and the support they provided to the family and Kay.  In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for contributions for a fund for those staff members, AMH Foundation, In Memory of Kasandra Burks, 200 Hospital Ave., Jefferson NC 28640.
