Kay Marie Comuntzis Getsinger, 73, died peacefully at home on August 29, 2018. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 16, 2018, at Wilkerson Funeral Home in Greenville, NC and Hastings Funeral Home in Morgantown, WV on October 7, 2018 at 2 pm. Her earthly remains will be interred with her Grandparents in Lawnwood Cemetery in Morgantown, WV at a later date. Born on February 25, 1945 in Dallas, Oregon, she was the daughter of the late Dorothy Wiebe Comuntzis and Constantine "Gus" Comuntzis. Kay spent her formative years in Morgantown, WV. She was a proud West Virginia University Mountaineer alumna, where she studied journalism. She moved to Greenville, NC, in 1988 and later received a degree in Middle School Education from East Carolina University. Her last 23 years were spent teaching young people in Florida and North Carolina. Mrs. G, as she was known by her students, was loved by all and she loved all of her kids at her teaching stops during her career at Eppes, Farmville, Welcome, Space Coast, Swansboro, and Pactolus. Kay possessed a keen wit and had a ready laugh for all things humorous. Her students adored her, and her peers admired her. She loved watching sports on TV, cooking, and spending time at the beach. Kay is survived by her son, Sean L. Getsinger of Greenville, NC; daughter, Constance G. Getsinger of Winterville, NC; grandson, Riley P. Bowen of Winterville, NC; and Granddog Lily, her favorite German Shepherd. In lieu of flowers, friends may make contributions to the ECU Foundation, Mailstop 301, 2200 S.
