Chay will be remembered for her creativity, her generosity, her organizational skills, her ability to be a good friend, and her love of animals.

She was accomplished as an artistic clothing designer, a maker of “dragon boxes,” a creator of pet toys, and as a writer, editor and publisher of books of personalized story telling. Chay was a cartoonist and did spinning of weaving. The spinning was often of pet hair that ended up as sweaters for the owner of the special dog or cat. Her weaving took many forms. As a young adult Chay was a ballet dancer and interpretive dancer.
Always the organizer, Chay worked professionally in the field of business reorganization in California, Nevada and Arizona.
A caring and loving mother, a loving daughter, sister, and aunt, a faithful friend and one always available with cut-to-the-chase words of wisdom, Chay will be missed by many who were blessed top know her.
A CELEBRATION OF HER LIFE will be held in December. Please check on this website in early December for details.
