Mary Jean Warner Kelly, 52, left her earthly home to join her Heavenly Father on August 19, 2013. Mary was
born January 21, 1961 to Omer and Velma Warner. Mary overcame a potentially debilitating bone condition which caused her to spend most of her life in a wheelchair. She did not allow this to keep her from enjoying life. She attended and graduated from Spruce Creek High School, where she participated in the Chorus and Miss Spruce Creek High contest. For many years was an avid NASCAR fan. Mary had maintained a home for herself and David Mathis, the love of her life, for 19 years. Mary is survived by her mother, Velma Tebbe Warner; four nieces four nephews, and several aunts and an uncle, many cousins and lifelong friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Omer Warner and siblings, Betty Warner Hall, William (Bill) Warner and Brenda Jean Warner. The family invites you to share an informal celebration of Mary's life at the Life Village Community Center, 500 South Nova Road, Ormond Beach, Florida on Sunday, August 25, 2013 at 2:00 PM.
