Doris Evelyn Kelley, age 90, of Pell City, Ala. passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019. Doris was born August 25, 1928 in Seymore, Ala.
The youngest of five children, Doris was brought up in a very loving home, filled with family values and the word of God. After she graduated college, Doris joined the Navy and served our country during the Vietnam War as a photolithographer.

She was a good and faithful Christian who knew God's word like the back of her hand and often quoted passages from the Bible.
