Kaye Jackson Elliott

ELLIOTT, Vivienne Kaye Jackson, was born August 12, 1947, in Chatham, Virginia to Daniel McElheney and Vivienne Bullington Jackson and died on February 1, 2012. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. February 6, in the chapel of the Virginia Veterans Cemetery in Amelia. Funeral arrangements through Woody Funeral Home.

Survivors include daughter, Carrington P. Donnelly and Catherine T. Kurdika; grandchildren T. Jackson Erhardt and Graceful P. Perkinson; stepdaughter, Susan K. Elliott and Amy L. Elliott. Also survived by her husband of 26 years, Milton J. Elliott III.

To define Kaye would be like attempting to bottle a ray of sunshine or capture the wind within the palm of one's hand. She possessed an indomitable will, and above all, a keen sense of humor — virtues that enabled her to overcome difficult times and as an inspiration for others. She enjoyed a career in radio for nearly 40 years. She believed her primary mission was to make others laugh. Kaye's relationship with the whimisical is well documented…. Nope that wasn't a heaven's quake. It was God's hearty laughter. Kaye just buzzed an archangel.

Note: See Kaye's tribute to her grandparents Bullington.
