Kelly was a member of Bethany Baptist Church. She was dedicated to her family and her friends. Her true love in life was her family, and husband Tim of 27 years. Her enjoyment in life was being with her family, camping reading and her flower garden. Her work as an RN was her passion, she was an advocate for those in need. She was a leader that expected only the best from those around her and was always looking to find the best in others, pushing them to their fullest potential. She was a firm believer in “if you can’t do anything all the way, then don’t do it at all”. Kelly was the definition of compassion, determination and perseverance. We all need to fight like Kelly. We all need to live like she did. She was fearless…
