Virginia Kay Deitriech

Virginia Kay Fultz Deitriech, 45, transcended this world on Monday, March 27, 2023 in Elliottville, Kentucky.


Kay was born on September 21, 1977 in Morehead, Kentucky, a daughter of the late Carl “Cob” Fultz and Jewell Barker Fultz.


She was a gentle soul.  Kay was a ray of sunshine, lighting up every room she walked into.  Her smile was contagious, and she was goofy in the best way.  She was a hard worker, always putting in her best effort in everything she did. 


Kay was kind and helped others in any way she could, often volunteering or donating money when possible.  She loved quilting, spending time in nature, and being with her pets, Nina, Bailey,  Belle, and a multitude of chickens.  She loved canning, gardening, and taking trips with her husband, John.


Survivors include her loving husband of almost 11 years, John Deitriech, her daughter, Morgan Stegall-Griffith (Bryant), her brothers and sisters, Carl Ray Fultz (Serena) of Sandy Hook, Kentucky, Joey Dean Fultz (Kayla) of Soldier, Kentucky, and James Darrell Fultz (Jeannie), Mary Rayburn (Darby), and Christopher David Fultz (Kim) all of Olive Hill, Kentucky, her nieces and nephews, Travis, Sarah, Dalton, Deven, Cameron, Jayce, Jacob, McKenzie, Brandon, Sean, Crystal, Isaiah, Christopher, Anthony, and Kayla, her mother-in-law, Rhonda Roe, her grandmother-in-law, Barbara Roe, the father of her daughter and lifelong friend, David Stegall, his parents, Dickie and Sandie Stegall and his sister, Shawanna Gladden (Brian).  Also, a massive extended family which includes several aunts, uncles and cousins whom she loved so very much.


“When we go someplace, we leave a part of our energy there and we influence more than we can ever imagine.” – Dolores Cannon


Kay left a piece of her light anywhere she went and with everyone she spoke to.  Her light will live on in each of us through stories, photos, and the love she gave.


“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


Spirituality was very important to Kay and she would often remind others that God loved them unconditionally.  Kay believed that there is an afterlife and it brings so much joy to imagine she and her mother, Jewell, are now dancing in the kitchen together, singing to a John Anderson song and making strawberry jam.


Private family services have been conducted.


The Michael R. Gray Funeral Home, 808 Old Flemingsburg Road, Morehead, Kentucky  40351 is caring for all arrangements for Virginia Kay Fultz Deitriech.
