Miss Megan Kelley


Miss Megan Leigh Kelley age 19 of Andalusia passed away Monday, February 16, 2015 at her home after a courageous battle with cancer.

Funeral services will be held 11:00 a.m., Friday, February 20, 2015 at the First Baptist Church in Andalusia. Rev. Josh Wilson will be officiating. Interment will follow in the Bethany Baptist Church cemetery with Keahey Funeral Home directing. The family will receive friends 5:00-8:00 p.m., Thursday, February 19, 2015 at the First Baptist Church in Andalusia.

Megan was a gracious and kind daughter, sister, and friend to many. Born and raised in Andalusia, Megan had the astounding capacity to enjoy some of the simpler things that life has to offer; fishing, spending time with friends, watching football, and listening to country music. If anyone were to describe Megan to you they would have to comment on her glowing, infectious smile and sweet, joyful personality.

When Megan was diagnosed with cancer in July of 2013, she was about to begin her senior year of high school. The next year and a half would prove to be the most difficult experience her or her family had ever experienced. Despite the circumstances, Megan, or Maymay as she was known to friends and family, held tight to her faith in Christ. The inner joy and peace she received From God never ceased to flow from her, even in the darkest of times.

She will be remembered as grateful, kind, loving, and compassionate. Some words of advice she would like to offer are, "Be kind to everyone because you never know what they are going through."
