Mrs. Kelly was born January 12, 1925 in Bryan County to Jesse and Ora Lee Nelms. She was married to Ray Kelly, former Hugo High School teacher and first administrator for the Kiamchi Vo-Tech School, on July 19, 1947. She lived for over 65 years in Hugo. She graduated from Grant High School in 1942. After attending Draughn’s Business College in Dallas, she worked as an extension clerk in the county agents office in Hugo. She also worked for many years as a receptionist for the late Dr. A.L. Fountain. She was a lifetime member of the Hugo chapter of the Mothers Inter Se. Her family and her Jackson Street Church of Christ family were very important to her. Her sisters, Ramona Stillwell of Soper, OK and the late Jesse Gooding were her frequent companions. She always enjoyed cooking, entertaining and reading. Always fashionable, she strived to be a proper lady. Even with Alzheimer’s, she always smiled and never complained. Her motto was "It doesn’t cost anything to be nice to others."
