Kay Newsom Veach

Mrs. Kay Roberta Newsom Veach, 71, of Walnut Cove passed into the more immediate presence of our Savior on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, at Forsyth Medical Center. She was born in Forsyth County to the late Clifton Newsom and Kathryn Griffin Newsom on March 18, 1952.

Kay was a people person and met new friends everywhere she went. She enjoyed taking scenic “girl trips” through the country or to the beach, always looking for rainbows along the way. The greatest love of her life was family. She treasured her grandchildren fiercely and as she became a Nana; she lived her life for them. Kay was so happy to be able to babysit Ella and Kendall who lived the closest to her. She treasured the moments she was able to spend with Stockton, Hadley, and Vera riding around on the Artic Cat or Riding her pony, Rosie. She was overjoyed when the newest addition to her family, Atlas, was born and was honored to be the one to decorate his nursery.

Kay’s best friend and love of her life was Johnny. She loved to ride around their property exploring the rolling meadows at the foot of Hanging Rock State Park. Kay and Johnny enjoyed the simple life which included being at home, good food, and quality time with each other.

Kay will always be remembered in the hearts of those who loved her. May you feel her presence in every rainbow that you see.

She is survived by her husband John Veach; Children, Jeff Hull (Lynnette) Justin Hull (Candice) and daughter, Brittany Swain (Ryan), Jodie Laws (David) and Jamie Sell (Darrien); grandchildren, Stockton, Hadley, Vera, Atlas, Ella Kay, Kendall, Allyson, Rachel, and Christopher; great grandchild, Mila; brother, Tim Newsom (Becky) and many other relatives.
