She was born in Carrollton, Kentucky on March 6, 1928, the daughter of the late James H. and Sue Fay (Hayes) Pickett. Fay was a 1950 graduate of the Norton Memorial Infirmary School of Nursing. Her nursing career included hospitals and long-term care facilities in Owensboro, Kentucky, Logansport, Indiana, Anderson, Indiana and Mercy Medical Center, Springfield, retiring in 1988. She was a member of Central Christian Church, loved to play bridge, and enjoyed dancing in her younger years.
