Virginia Catherine ‘Kitty’ Hays

Virginia Catherine ‘Kitty’ Hays

Virginia Catherine “Kitty”  Hays of Ely, Nevada, died peacefully Friday, May 14, 2021 at Mountain West Medical Center in Tooele, Utah.

She was born Jan.1, 1929, in Kirksey, Kentucky, to Porter Brown Hays and Bessie Mae Ezell Hays. 

She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Murray State University. She taught and inspired students in art and English first in Elko County, then White Pine County, from 1954 until her retirement in 1984. She joined the White Pine Chapter of Retired Public Employees of Nevada (RPEN) in 1987, tirelessly advocating for and protecting retiree benefits until 2018. She held every chapter position, most for multiple terms, and often served on state committees. She was the recipient of the Pat Fladager Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017, the RPEN’s highest recognition.

She was also honored for her work on behalf of Delta Kappa Gamma, an honorary society of women educators who are committed to excellence in education.

Kitty enjoyed deer hunting, fishing and was a naturally gifted artist. Her passion was painting, but she enjoyed designing and executing themes for the events for which she was involved. She also worked with arts in the community, supervising the landscaping, seasonal and performance decorations for Ely’s Centennial Building, a National Historic Site. When asked about life, her feisty answer was always “life is too short to fold your underwear” which she delivered with a straight and solemn face, leaving everyone around her in stitches.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Curtis and Bob Hays, and lifelong friend, Minnis A. Alderman.

Kitty is survived by her sister, Anna F. Redden of Waco, Kentucky, and many nieces and nephews, greats and great-greats.

A graveside service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 31, 2021, at Murray City Cemetery.
