A Native of California, Betty Ellen Kelley, 79 passed away on October 6, 2021, after a long illness. Betty was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was happiest when surrounded by her family, playing cards, and building puzzles with her grandchildren. Betty loved music and could be heard singing while doing any activity. Betty stayed active, she worked well into her sixties before retiring. She could be found reading the Sunday paper front to back each week. She enjoyed all these things before her health began to fail. Betty lives on as a perfect role model of someone who was selfless and devoted to her family. She will be missed, until we see each other again, we love you.
