March 28, 1964 — November 12, 2014

Kelly Ann Bradley Meli, 50, formerly of Shelley passed away Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014, while vacationing in New Jersey.

Kelly was born Mar. 28, 1964, in Colorado Spring, CO. Her family moved to Shelley in 1969. She attended Shelley High School and Highland Community College in Freeport, IL. Kelly married George Meli in 1981. They traveled the country with his job, settling in Illinois where they raised three children. They were later divorced. In 2002 Kelly moved back to Idaho to be near her family. She had recently moved to Moneta, VA, to help out friends Chris and Rebecca Jenks. Kelly was known for her big heart, bear hugs, and laughter. She enjoyed her days doing her favorite things: spending time with family, helping friends, listening to music, and camping. She loved sharing stories and pictures of her grandchildren.

Kelly was a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Idaho Falls. Her faith was an important part of her life.
