    I had the pleasure of working with Kelly. She was an amazing woman, and will be so missed. My heart goes out to the family and friends. Fly high Kelly

  4. I had the privilege of working with Miss Kelly. She was absolutely always bright and positive. Even in the times of her illness. She welcomed her kiddos into her classroom with a smile and a kind word. She then embraced them with a hug of encouragement and gentle redirection. There were usually a lot of laughs during class! She loved the curious ones and those who were willing to take a chance to learn something new! This ray of warm sunshine followed her throughout her day, in the classroom, hallways, lunch time! From my perspective is was EVERY day, ALL the time! My heart breaks for our loss, but I know Miss Kelly is pain free and shining even more brightly from above! My heartfelt condolences to her family, friends, and all who loved her. Fly high Miss Kelly! And know that you are loved and will be missed dearly…

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Kelly and I were on South Beaver Recreation Board together. When I pass your house, I often wanted to stop and say high, however I was usually on my way to work. I will keep all of you in my prayers!!!
