Beverly Holmes Kelly, 70, of Hazen was welcome to enjoy eternity with her Lord and Savior on January 14, 2022. She was born to the late John and Joy Faye Holmes. She was a member of centerpoint missionary Baptist Church. Beverly embraced life. She was always faced with love and laughter. That legacy is what she leaves to her family and friends. Her greatest joy was spending time with family. This includes cooking fried chicken and deer meat, having breakfast waiting on her favorite Deerhunters and always meeting each one of us with a hug. In the last five years her days were filled with joy and love as she was blessed with raising Melanie, her great granddaughter.
As she entered heaven, she was greeted by her oldest daughter Becky Miller Taylor. The family waiting to join her in heaven is her husband Gene Kelly, her daughters Leslie (Wes) Cates, Jamie (Paul) Blumhorst, stepson Steve (Lindsey) Kelly and his family. She cherished her grandchildren Carmen (Cody) Ellison, Katie Taylor, Devan (Michael) Tillman, Heather Kinley, Braxton (Brooklyn) Kinley, Micah Cate, Tanner Blumhorst and Payton Blumhorst. Her love was extended to her great grandchildren John Preston and Phoebe Ellison, Lucas and Melanie Taylor, and Caleb and Casey Tillman. She cherished her brother and best friend Dennis Holmes and three sisters Pam (Allen) Watson Jacqueline (Don) Campbell and Teresa Holmes. She touched the life of all her nieces nephews, including the great nieces and nephews.

Beverly celebration service will be Tuesday, January 18 at 2 PM at Centerpoint Missionary Baptist Church in Hazen. Dennis Holmes and Billy booth will lead the service.
