Kay was born on Nov. 14, 1941, to Veryl and Mary Riddle. She grew up in Malden, Missouri, attended Malden High School and finished at Gulf Park Prep School in Gulfport Mississippi, where she was voted “Miss Preflight” by the Pensacola Naval Cadets.

After graduation from Southeast Missouri State College, she married Edward Campbell from Cape Girardeau, Missouri. After medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans, he served in the U.S. Army, assigned to an Army hospital in Frankfurt, Germany, during the Vietnam War. After a three-year tour of duty in Germany, they settled in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Kay was an avid golfer and tennis player. She was active in local politics, the opera guild and the medical auxiliary. In 1995, she married retired businessman, Larry Morrow, from Los Angeles. In 2000, they became early members of the Hassayampa Golf Club in Prescott, Arizona, and built their new home there.
