Growing up in Portsmouth, England, she trained as a nurse. After marrying her husband Ken in the 1960s, they had to move around the country, due to his job as a prison officer. In 1980, they arrived in Norwich, loved the area, and decided to never leave. She soon became a member of its city council and, in 1998, its Sheriff. In 2009, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo a double mastectomy. In 2011, she was appointed Lord Mayor of Norwich. In late 2012, the cancer returned and, her health failing, she was forced to step down from the mayorship and city council.

Lay died of cancer on 14 July 2013 at the age of 74. She is survived by her husband Ken, son Steve and daughter Sue.
