She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, and one sister. Working with children was Kellie’s passion. She retired from Lewistown Community School District 97 where she worked with developmentally disabled students as a Paraprofessional. Kellie enjoyed sunbathing, gardening, her pets, and cooking for family get-togethers (or maybe just the togetherness). Kellie loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them. She also enjoyed collecting antiques and primitives. Her family says Kellie was the kindest and nicest person that they had ever known. She always kept an open mind and had the biggest heart. Cremation will be accorded. A memorial service will be held at 5:00 p.m. Sunday, August 20th at the Henry-Lange Memorial Home in Lewistown with Pastor Shane Smith officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Memorial contributions may be made to the Lewistown United Methodist Church. To send online condolences visit
