Greymo

Folks, Kay Rogers has passed away. Her daughter Janice let me know this morning. Most of you knew her here on Roadfood as Greymo, but way back she used the moniker Chezkatie. Kay was known as a terrific cook, but she was an avid Roadfooder who loved everything from the humble hot dog to the Peter Luger Porterhouse.

I can only assume GREYMO's passing was due to a broken heart (son's recent passing) for which she could not recover.   I hope she is now at resting at peace.

This is so sad.  So soon after the passing of her son, her family must be heartbroken.
 
Kay came across as kind, classy, whip smart and very knowledgeable about food.  She sent me several messages over the years with restaurant recommendations, which was much appreciated.
 
She will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear of Greymo's passing.  While we never met in person, I always looked forward to her comments on these forums and my trip reports.  She was always excited to read about trips that fellow Rfers were taking to different parts of the country and that, to me, is a big part of what makes Roadfood so special.
 
Rest in peace, Greymo.

Re: Greymo 2019/03/26 11:32:15 (permalink) ☄ Helpfulby JRPfeff 2019/03/26 11:38:16
Hello all, I am Kay's son, Art.  I was able to locate Kay's password for her old username chezkatie so I am using that on her behalf.
 
Michael, thank you for posting the news about my mom, I appreciate it.  You have been a friend to my mom for some time and it was good to see that somebody was able to inform her other friends on this board.  Know that we have read your heartfelt messages and condolences and they have provided comfort to us.
 
My mom was a great person.  She was a great mom and a loving grandmother.  In our case, she has lived with me and my family for the past 20 years and helped raise our children.  She was a treasured co-parent.  My children were blessed to have homecooked meals from across the culinary spectrum almost every night of their lives and that experience, and Kay's love as demonstrated through her passion for cooking, had an indelible impact on their lives.
 
Moreover, as our family traveled over the past 20 years my mom always went with us.  Along the way, she taught our kids to appreciate not only sophisticated dinners at fine restaurants, but also the simple and incredible joy of regionally authentic and culturally diverse meals.  That is a gift beyond measure because those basic principles of enjoying the good in all cooking regardless of origin was also a metaphor for her approach to her fellow human beings, and my children have been guided by the open-mindedness, kindness, decency, and civility that comes with enjoying other people's---ANY people's---kitchens.
 
I still remember when I was a young boy of about 10 and my mom declared to me and my dad that we were stopping someplace for "road food" on the way to Florida.  What did not sound appealing to me at the time turned into my first experience with an authentic Carolina BBQ buffet in Manning, SC.  Since then, my trips with my parents, and my children's trips with their grandmother have always included a copy of the Stern's most recent books and some incredible meals and memories.
 
Next to my wife, Kay was my best friend.  She is the one who would watch any sport with me until any time of day or night and I will treasure and miss those moments for as long as I live.  Nine days ago as she was patiently enduring what turned out to be her final televised stock car race with me, my 83 year old mom said "you know, after watching Formula 1 these NASCAR pitstops seem pretty damn slow."  That's who my mom was...until the end she indulged us, she was a keen observer, she was a lover of people, food, and sport, and she was an incredible companion.
 
Know that in her final hours she was cognizant, intelligent, articulate, and humorous.  She was surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren, and when she was finally resigned to her impending death (she did not want to die...she told the doctor she wanted to live to see her granddaughter graduate from the US Naval Academy next May) she said, "Well, this has turned out to be a lovely death." She will be loved and cherished forever and my heart is broken and I am devastated with her loss, just as she was with the recent losses of my brother and my wife's beloved mother just 2 weeks ago.
 
For the record, while Kay's last meal sadly was a 1/2 a chicken salad sandwich from the hospital cafeteria, in typical fashion she elevated the ordinary to the sublime with her last beverage which was a quite healthy pour of Bombay Sapphire gin.  She went out like the versatile, elegant lady she was.
 
Thank you all for being her friend and for posting your kind condolences and know that it is during times like this that this community is at its best.

Thank you for taking the time to post here about your mom Art. It is a great to have the real perspective about a lady I only knew as a screen name.
 
Kay and I exchanged a few Personal Messages a couple years ago. I just went back and read them and she made me laugh again. A nice memory of my Virtual Friend.

Thanks Art. Your mom was a good friend. And she was a Giants fan. It doesn't get any better than that.

Thank You for posting Art.  Kay posted equally about food and family, us regulars feel like we know you.  I tip a healthy pour of rum to her memory.

Art, thank you for the wonderful tribute to your mother. I never had the priviledge of meeting her but she sounds as though she was wonderful. I lost my parents within a couple of years almost twenty years ago and continue to miss them profoundly. You have had so many losses lately. I am so very sorry. I want you to know that I send you my regards and best wishes. Let us hear from you again, please. God bless you. Marion Mcclung
