Etta Kay Hilverts, age 66, passed away Monday. She was born in Chester to the late Edgar Carlton Stogner and Gracie Small Stogner. Kay was the wife of Hendrikus “Hank” Hilverts and the mother of Kelly Mabe (William) of Rock Hill; Sean Lee Manus (Jodie) of Rock Hill and Ryan Donald Manus (Shelly) of Nashville, Tennessee; eleven grand-children and four great-grand-children.
Kay was a member of Bethel United Methodist Church and she was an avid reader. Her grand-children always looked forward to seeing their grand-mother and taking delight and great pleasure with her as she made an art of blowing bubbles and coloring with them.
A Celebration of Life for Kay will be held at Pollard Funeral Home in Chester, SC November 13th at 2pm. Due to the pandemic, this service will be immediate family only. However, there will be a video of the service made for the Bethel UMC-Chester YouTube page. Kelly Mabe will also be hosting a Facebook Live so that all of her friends and extended family may watch real time. If you would like to see the FB Live feed please send Kelly Mabe a friend request.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Bethel United Methodist Church c/o Kay Hilverts Memorial Fund to help offset the final expenses.
