Final Expenses for Rita G. Kelley

53445092_1608534018303713_r.jpegOur beloved, Rita Gale Kelley passed away December 19th, 2020.  Rita was a wonderful mother and wife who touched the lives of those around her. She leaves behind a husband, Jessie Kelley,  two daughters, Rhonda (Kelley) Buege and Amanda (Kelley) Crandell, and two grandsons, Hunter Buege and Drake Buege. 

She suffered from a rare genetic disorder, but her faith in God kept her spirits high. Despite her life-long ailments, her death was unexpected. We are all devastated by this sudden loss and were not prepared for the high cost of a funeral service. We want to give Rita the memorial she deserves, to honor her memory and say our last goodbyes.

We are currently asking for donations to help cover the cost of her funeral and final expenses that will not be covered by Social Security and policies that were in place. 

She will be laid to rest in Fruitland, TN, next to her late son, Robert Dale “Bubba” Kelley, who passed away at the age of 3 in 1982. 

Please consider donating, as any amount will truly help our family during this extremely difficult time. Any and all donations are welcome, and we appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received. 

Thank you so much for anything you can give.
