Kaye is survived by her loving parents, Wanda M. (Lewis) Lebo of Morgantown and Emery A. “Bud” Lebo (wife, Gina) of O’Fallon, Mo. She was the devoted mother to three sons, Troy Phelps (wife, Donna) of Morgantown, Sean Lebo (wife, Stephanie) of Lakewood, Wash., and Michael Wimmenauer of Indianapolis. She will be remembered by her brother, Raymond J. “Squirrel” Lebo of Morgantown, and her six grandchildren, David, Nathan and Allan Phelps, Hannah Lebo, Jacob Durden and Elijah Ness.

Kaye was preceded in death by twin sisters, Yvette Gayle and Yvonne Raye Lebo; brother, Michael E. Lebo on Sept. 11, 1988; and a granddaughter, Hayleigh Marie Lebo, on June 22, 2009.

She loved going out dancing and having a good time with her friends and family. Kaye enjoyed playing poker, boating and spending time with her grandchildren and dog, “Shine.”

The Rev. Nick Seniour will conduct a funeral service at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown. Friends can call from 4-8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
