It is with deep sadness that the family of Kaye
Lyn Shields announces her passing at the age of
43 on Friday, March 19, 2021 at Baptist Health.
The family finds some comfort knowing she has
now been reunited with her daddy; Jessie Shields,
and her nannie; Louise Butts.
Kaye was a native of Frankfort, KY and worked
for many years in long term care, but found her
greatest joy serving as a nanny to all the special
children placed in her care over the course of
her lifetime. She was a special human being, and
anyone who truly knew her literally loved her! Kaye always put others
first, and encouraged everyone to be kind. She was an advocate for all.
While her life was short, Kaye lived it to the fullest never passing up on
an adventure. She spent many years in Louisiana a place she dearly loved,
and also loved making visits to the ocean and attending concerts with
both family and friends. In her free time she loved to practice her many
stand-up comedy routines. Kaye will be fondly remembered by the pranks
she pulled on others and that little smirk she always carried on her face.
She could light up a room with her smile and warm your heart and soul
with one of her mighty hugs.
Kaye will forever missed and remembered by her wife and best friend;
Candace and her chiweenie; Lucy. Other survivors include her mother;
Donna Johnson, sisters; Valerie Shields Joyce (Wilson), Sabra Shields, Jennifer
Barnett, Paula Fyffe (John), Stephanie Robinson ( Larry), Sherri Coots
(John), Shawn Heilman (Bryan), Lori Cottrell (David), Paula Anne Jen-
kins (JJ), brothers; David Shields (Carolyn), Dennis Shields (Dana), Scott

Layla Walston, Jessie Atwood & Tucker Barnett, she is also survived by
