My deepest sympathies and condolences to Paul, Allie and the rest of her family. It’s so hard to believe that sweet Kelly is gone. I am so blessed to have known and worked with Kelly in the College Connections ministry. Her love ❤️ of children, her family and Christ Church was legendary! Whatever she could do to help others and her bright, infectious smile ? is what I will always remember. RIH Kelly!!!
Sending prayers to comfort you all.
Kelly was a beautiful woman who loved her family fiercely. She talked about them all the time and how she missed her father so much. I witnessed the special bond she shared with her sister. I am so grateful God let our paths cross and I was able to spend time with her. She will be terribly missed. A sister in Christ who went on ahead of us to be with her father and will greet us in heaven. Until we meet again. I love you.
My condolences. I will be watching the funeral via live stream today. Prayers to her family, friends and all they knew and loved her. Kelly’s humor (a gift from her daddy) was contageous.
Paul, Allison and family, thought and prayers to all of you.
I’m so sorry to hear about Kelly. We were on the dance team together in high school. She was so full of life and bubbly. My heart goes out to her family and friends. xo
My deepest sympathies and condolences to Sherry and the rest of the family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I am so sorry for your loss. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
My heart sank when I learned Kelly had passed. I am a nurse at Siteman and I spent a lot of time with Kelly. She was so sweet and I always knew that she would be my bright light for the next 12 hours. We shared puppy pictures and joked about Hallmark Christmas movies. Everyone loved taking care of Kelly. Kelly’s family will be in my thoughts and prayers especially this week around Christmas.
RIP, Kelly. You were a good friend in High School at East. I’ll see you again someday.
Sherry, Allie, Paul, family, and friends,
I am sending my deepest condolences to you all. Kelly and I danced at Becky Kern’s and were also on the East Pom squad together. Kelly was such a bright spot wherever she went, and she was always able to make us laugh and have fun. I will remember her beautiful smile and the positive energy that she brought with her. I’m so sad to hear that such a wonderful soul was taken from us so early, but I am certain that she is happily enjoying time with her Dad up in heaven. Kelly will never be forgotten, she will be part of all of you every single day and in the memories of all who were blessed enough to know her. Prayers for peace.
Our hearts go out to Kelly’s family and friends and to her family at Christ Church.
My deepest condolences for all of Kelly’s family. My fondest memory of Kelly was dancing with her at Adams School of Dance!! We had so much fun. She will be greatly missed but I will always cherish those memories!! Rest In Peace!
I am so very sorry for your loss… Kelly was and will always be an amazing person. She went out of her way for everyone… even if they were not in her close circle of family and friends. Her Faith in our God was inspiring… Kelly will be dearly missed by so many people… please know all of you, family and close friends are in my prayers and thoughts.
