Kelly was engaged in living life to its fullest. She treasured spending time outdoors; hiking, camping, skiing, canoeing, cliff jumping or snow skiing, she looked forward to every adventure. She also enjoyed landscaping and the joys of making her gardens beautiful. Times spent vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach, NC was her favorite location that has been a family tradition started as a child and was continued forward with her family and children.
