Kay Flowers, 45 of Urbana, finished her courageous battle from breast cancer, Sunday July 5, 2015 in the OSU Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
Kay was born July 8, 1969 in Dayton, Ohio. She was a 1987 graduate of Tecumseh High School. She attended Rhodes State College in Lima studying Occupational Therapy; receiving an honorary certificate from the college for her heart and dedication to the program.
She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Urbana.
Kay was loved by many for her fighting spirit, her wonderful and contagious smile, her humble character, because she cared without judgement and gave without expectation of something in return. She lived each day fully and left a lasting impression on every soul she touched.
She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. As our hearts ache for the physical loss of her, we find solace knowing that she is now with God. She is at peace. And for that, we are grateful.
Her survivors include her loving husband of 26 years, Donald Frank “Don” Flowers II; her parents, Dale Riley and Jo Ann (Back) Boussum; her children, Joseph Frank Flowers, Jacob Frank Flowers and Mary Isabella Flowers; brother, George (Donna) Boussum and several nieces, nephews and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her son Thomas Frank Flowers; grandparents Georgia (Kenneth) Boussum and Bonnie (Bryan) Back

MAJ Flowers, my heart goes out to you and your family in this time of grief. My prayers are with you and your family.
Donald, I am praying for you, your children and your entire family in the loss of Kay. I didn’t know your beautiful wife well but she touched me. When we saw each other a few years back her personality struck me instantly and I genuinely liked her, she seemed so easy to be around. When Benjamin was being diagnosed she offered her experience and shared some of her heart with me. It meant the world to me! It is apparent how much she was loved and touched the lives of everyone she met. I hope her impact on this world, will be a comfort to you and your children during this time!
Heartfelt condolences to each of you,
May you feel God’s presence in your time of sorrow. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Flowers Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. We know that you, along with many others, will miss your mom (wife) so much. She was a wonderful person with a never-ending giving attitude always willing to help anyone in need. We are both so grateful to have known her.
Jeanie and Faith
