Arlene Marie Kelling went up to be with the Lord Sept. 6, 2021. Many people in the Kamiah area knew her for all of the work that she put in at the Kamiah School District concession stands during every sporting event. She was known as the “concession lady” by many of the students. She was a very intelligent, caring and selfless soul who would help anyone in need.
Her relationship with God was as strong as her relationship with her friends and family. She was an incredibly hard working individual and was never afraid to speak her mind. Her love for Elvis Presley, old school rock n roll, Halloween, the color black and her fiery spirit will forever be remembered and carried on by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Arlene leaves behind her husband of 63 years, Robert Kelling; her children Cheryl, Tammy and Robert Kelling II; her grandchildren Shiloh Major, Shayla Grimm, Cassandra Murrill, Nicole and David Kelling; her nine great grandchildren Brayden, Jewell and Jayden Lori, Adrianna and Carson Grimm, as well as Christian, Peyton, Morgan and Brooklyn Murrill.
We have all learned so much from this incredible woman and we will never forget all of the joy, laughter and support she brought to our lives. Even though you left so suddenly, we all hope that the front row to the Elvis concert is treating you well up there. With love from all of your family.
