The past few weeks have been tough. I would like to thank everyone for keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers. Below you will find my Mom’s Obituary. Although it says to send flowers, we are actually doing something a little different. We will be making a donation in Kelley’s name to the Hope Cancer Lodge of Nebraska, where many of us stayed throughout the process of her fight with cancer. If you would like to contribute, you can do so one of 3 ways, send a check/money order/cash to our home address or send electronically to Venmo or Paypal, which are listed below:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding a memorial service at a later time when we can gather to celebrate Kelley in the way she deserves. Thank you all for your continued support. Please share your memories and support this worth while cause!!!
Lastly, PostHope (this website) will be ceasing operation as of June 1st. . After that time, please watch Facebook for details regarding the memorial service. Christian will post the details and tag Kelley and some other family members and friends. We want as many people as possible to attend and celebrate this wonderful mother, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, neighbor, friend and co-worker.

Kelley was an athlete from the time she was born. As a kid, she learned how to swim from her brothers. Then she moved to developing her love of soccer and softball, which led her to her college education, and lifelong friends. In her adult life she enjoyed golfing with her friends, binge watching every Real Housewives Episode, teaching her children the love of athletics, and being the best cat lady to Wilson and Diamond. She was a caring Mother, Daughter, Sister, and Friend. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
