As clinical manager at Fresenius Medical Center, Kelly's employees and patients were very important to her. she always gave them her very best. Kelly had many hobbies and interests. she involved herself in 4-H and the church and instilled these values into her children and grandchildren.


Bird watching and planting flowers were a great passion as evidenced by the beautiful display of unique plants, bird feeders, houses and baths, seen from her living room window. Kelly enjoyed watching HGTV and making the ideas come alive (much to the dismay of Dale's wallet and labor!).


Her love of spending time with her kids and grandkids instigated a family reunion at Posey Lake, where everyone could camp together and the kids could be kids.
