Publisher Passes

October 7, 1932 – January 10, 2021

The Meade County Messenger is heartbroken to announce that one of its long-time publishers and bookkeepers, Mrs. Georgia Katharyn “Kay” McGehee, passed away last Sunday. The newspaper businesses can be a harrowing thing at times, but at its core, the employees have a sincere desire to give back to their community. Kay was the epitome of this heartfelt resolve. She was, until the end, our biggest supporter and staunchest critic. We will miss her immensely. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to send our condolences to her family… but also our gratitude. The Messenger is extremely grateful that it was able to benefit from Kay’s love, dedication and enthusiasm for so many years. We hope we make her proud in the years to come.
