When asked what she did for a living, Kelly would always proudly exclaim that she was a domestic engineer. She loved being a mother, not only to her eight children but to all their friends as well. She lit up a room with her presence and wit; you met her once but felt as if you’d been friends with her forever because she was so welcoming.
She was the fun mom and aunt; always down for a board game, Starbucks run, Goodwill trip, British television, or good mystery book. Over the years she wore many hats: girl scout leader, book club organizer, soccer mom, chauffeur, volunteer, and confidant but the one she loved most was being a mom. She was so proud of her kids. Her life may have been cut unbearably short but her legacy will live on in her children and those who loved her.
Kelly was generous and charitable, always donating her time and money to causes she felt strongly about. Kelly was involved in Boy Scouts and was a Girl Scout Leader. She also volunteered with the Independent Cat Society. Private Cremation through Sheets Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 604 E. Commercial Ave, Lowell, IN.
