We are all KelleyStrong

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:

Venmo- KelleyStrong51

KelleyStrong c/o Christian Demand 307 Countryshire Lake St. Louis, MO 63367

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.  


Kelly Jane Demand passed away on March 25, 2020 at the age of 50. She is survived by her mother, Rachel Jane Christopher nee Greene; son, Christian M. Demand of Lake Saint Louis, MO and her daughter, Jordan T. Demand; three brothers, Dale T. Christopher, Craig C. Christopher, Scott F. Christopher; sister, Lisa Ann Christopher; 6 nieces and nephews; 10 great nieces and nephews.  She is preceded in death by her father, Howard J. Christopher and brother, Paul D. Christopher. 

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.

    It’s hard to believe how long I have known Kelley starting from working with her at Young Dental. Kelley was an amazingly strong woman devoted to her family, that is why she battled her sickness so bravely, and she taught me lot through all this. My heart weeps for her children and family, so grieve for her each in your own way and together, talk about her, laugh and cry together as all this will help with your healing. God Bless you all and allow God to surround you with Love, Comfort and Peace. ♥️♥️🦋🌸😢🌹🙏

    I am just hearing of this tragic news for the first time and it is difficult to process. Jordan, Christian, and family we are so terribly sorry for this profound loss. Your mother was a beautiful person and I am so grateful that we had the chance to know her and call her friend. Our deepest sympathies are with you. Love and light to all of you.
