Tommye Kaye was a 42-year member of McKendree United Methodist Church, of Jasper where she could always be found teaching the adult Sunday School Class or in the choir loft.  She was always up for a good card game.  But enjoyed her weekly Bridge game with her long-time crew of dedicated players, and her regular game of Bunko with her Bunko buddies.

Survivors include her husband, Tommy Stanfill, daughter, Laura Allen (Barry), two wonderful granddaughters, Gracie and Sophie Allen of Jasper, her mother, Ruth Maness of Decaturville, sisters, Lana Douglas (Howard) of Lexington, Annette Gilbert of Decaturville, and brother, Geary Maness (Betty) of Decaturville.  Finally, she is survived by her beloved “boys”, Scooter and Prince.
