Spilker, Kelly Frances Fortified with the sacraments of Holy Mother Church, transcended this life into the loving arms of her parents Rich and Mary Spilker (nee Mathews) and sister Karen (Steve) Roden on Friday October 7. She will be dearly missed by her remaining older siblings Kathie (Charlie) Triantafyllou, Brian (Patty) Spilker and her special friend, Gary Mueller.
Kelly (“Kell”) was a one-of-a kind gentle soul who appreciated every minute of her too-short life. She enjoyed a day of fishing, a round of golf, cooking for friends, playing games of chance and preserving family traditions. She never missed a family function and never left an event without a good-bye kiss.
Although she had no children of her own, Kelly was a devoted aunt and cheerleader for her many nieces and nephews, Amy (Craig) Willbanks and their children, Corbin, Kayden and Easton; Ashley (Travis) Mazzio; Stephanie (Jeff) Daniels and their son, Michael; Courtney (Scott) Ravenscraft and their children, Austin, Alexis and Connor. Her family pride extended to her many cousins and their children, as well. Kelly’s gift was the ability to make everyone else feel special.
For many years, Kelly was the family photo historian chronically major milestones, “Madness” vacations, weddings, births, and other special occasions. Her twinkling eyes and zest for life will live forever in the photo album of the hearts and memories of those who love her most.
