Kayla Kelly, 30, on February 14, 2021, went to be with her Heavenly Father.

Kayla was born on February 25, 1990 in Sandusky, Michigan, to Kevin Gordon and Jennifer Hampton (Corey).  Her early years were spent growing up in Croswell, Michigan and was a graduate of Croswell-Lexington High School. She played softball, volleyball, basketball, and was in the yearbook club.  Throughout her time in high school, she was also an Honor Student.

Kayla attended Ferris State College in 2013 where she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Health Care Administrations. She was an active member and alumnae of the Zeta Nu chapter of Delta Zeta and was on the homecoming court in 2011. She was a dedicated employee of the State of Michigan as a Welfare Representative Specialist and lived in Middleville, Michigan.

Kayla was the loving wife of Patrick Kelly and mother of Ava, Rowan, and Bria Kelly. She enjoyed baking the best and only cookies her family enjoyed and ate by the dozen! Crafting for her family and finding ways to make their house a home was a pastime of hers as well as seeing her kids laugh.  Coffee coursed through Kayla as she enjoyed each cup in the morning and afternoon.  She enjoyed nothing more than being an active part in her children’s lives and time spent away from home as a family.

Kayla is survived by her parents: her husband, Patrick Kelly; her children, Ava, Rowan, and Bria; her siblings, Nevin Gordon, Kortney Chaskey (Chris), and Dominic Hampton. Kayla is preceded in death by her grandparents, Cora Lee Lamb Gordon, Robert Gordon, and Paul Newton. 

Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 20, between 12:30-1:30pm at Holy Family Parish in Caledonia, Michigan with a funeral mass to follow at 1:30pm. Flowers and condolences may be offered at 9669 Kraft Ave. SE, Caledonia, MI. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to Safe Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center of Barry County, Michigan. She will be deeply missed by family, friends, and all who knew her.
