It is with a full heart that we announce that on April 29th, 2019, our beloved Kelli closed her eyes for the last time. Kelli meant so much to each of us, being a selfless mother, a caring wife, a fun aunt, and a loving daughter. Although her physical presence may be gone, the impact she has had on all of us will never falter. Kelli lives on through Marvern and her girls, Hailey Murray and Taylor Heimbigner. She also lives on through all of you, through all of the family and friends that she loved so very dearly.
Kelli was was raised to be tough by her parents, Fred and Linda Macias, and tough she was. She would always do her best to put the rest of us first, no matter what. She raised her daughters to look for the very best in everyone, and to care for everyone as much as they could. She had an infectious laugh and could get everyone's attention with her infamous whistle. Kelli was a warrior, defying all odds.
She will be forever missed, forever loved, and forever in our hearts. There truly will never be another one like Kelli, and we are all so very lucky to have had the honor of having her in our lives.
Fred, Marvern, Hailey and Taylor all thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for every time you loved her, appreciated her, and made her smile. Kelli is now without pain, joining our beloved Linda in heaven, as well as the sons and daughters she had lost.
Let us honor her memory with joy, celebrating her life as opposed to mourning her death as we truly believe that is what she would have wanted. She loved each and every one of us more than we will ever know. Let us remember her with joy in our hearts, and trust that she is now safely with the Lord and reunited with the family we have lost.
May our beloved Kelli rest peacefully.
