She worked as an educator for twenty plus years for the Mason County Board of Education and for the past eight years was an educator at Lakin Correctional Center. Kelly made a difference in the lives of so many children and adults. She will surely be remembered most for her kind heart and giving spirit. She always thought of others first. She would want everyone to remember that kindness always counts.
