Sherry Kay Langford

Constable Kay Langford died from complications as a result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.

Constable Langford had served as the elected constable of Henderson County Precinct 1 for four years and had previously served with the Henderson County Sheriff's Office for 29 years. She had been shot and seriously wounded in the line of duty early in her career. She is survived by her husband and two children.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
