Serving Opelika, Auburn, and Lee County since 1988



Susan Boothe Kelly

May 25, 1954 ~ November 11, 2018 (age 64)

Mrs. Susan Boothe Kelly, 64, of Opelika, put her ten year battle with cancer behind her Sunday, November 11, 2018 and opened her eyes in our Savior’s glory. Those she taught and worked alongside at Opelika Middle School remember her as their consumer science teacher. Her church family and the community will miss her bubbly, loving presence that followed her as she served them with her many talents.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama to Charles Boothe and Louise Cayton Boothe, she grew up in Opelika.

She is survived by her spouse, Mark Kelly; and sons: Daniel (Leah) and Adam (Ginny); her grandchildren: Drannon, Lecy, and Carter were precious to their “SuSu”; siblings: Sandie (Huey) Ford and Chuck (Sue) Boothe; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.

The family will join with the community and brothers and sisters in Christ at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at the Church of Christ on Tenth Street in Opelika for a celebration of a life well lived. Visitation for Mrs. Kelly will be held one hour prior to the Memorial service, beginning at 10:00 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at Tenth Street Church of Christ.

Thank you to the staff at EAMC, Dr. Linda Farmer, and the Oncology teams, for the support and direction on this journey.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the church for the Romania mission’s work, which would bring Susan much joy.
