Linda Kay [“Kay”] Richardson, died on June 28, 2019, within 7 hours of her 72nd birthday. She was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas on June 29, 1947, the only child of Thomas Stallcup Richardson and Mildred Turner Richardson. She graduated from Pine Bluff High School in 1965 and attended the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville until she decided that travelling the world was more important. In her earlier years she was an avid tennis player, having organized and captained a USTA team for working women.
Kay had a long and varied career in every phase of publishing, including production, editing, translating (from Dutch to English) and writing. She was fluent in Dutch and German, and conversant in Spanish. She spent much of her adult life living and working in Holland and New York. When she returned to Arkansas to take care of her aging parents, she continued to work as a freelance translator and copy editor for the University of the State of New York and Indiana University Press. Throughout her life she was fascinated with the history and methods of printing, as well art, Christian saints, Buddhist philosophy, and the psychology of pain.
        Kay was a committed Episcopalian and a lifelong member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Pine Bluff, as were her parents before her. There will be no funeral or visitation. Kay requested that any donations in her memory be made to either Hospice Home Care In-patient Center, 2200 South Bowman Road, Little Rock, AR, 72211 or to UAMS Cancer Institute in Little Rock.
        We, her friends, would like to convey our profound thanks to Hospice Home Care In-patient Center in Little Rock, and all its staff for their gentle and loving care during Kay’s last weeks of life.  We also sincerely thank Dr. John Harris, Baptist Family Health Clinic, White Hall, for his support and care.
