ELECTA JANE (SUPPLEE) KELLY Electa Jane (Supplee) Kelly was born on June 24, 1921 in Seattle, WA to her parents, A. Roy & Edna Supplee. She passed away at the age of 95 years old in her home, located in Tr-Cities, WA on December 17, 2016. Jane lived a full life. She graduated from high school, got married, raised 5 children and received high accolades at sales jobs. Growing up, Jane was known for her ability to run fast, like a "scared deer", she was good at a variety of sports as well. She loved music and dancing; she was known to rip up the dance floor in her day! She also had a fascination with the Seattle Mariners and never missed a game; keeping meticulous stats on her own. She married Verle Troge in 1937 and they had 5 children. She later married Emerson Kelly, who helped raise the children and was a source of stability for the family. Her love for her family was apparent and shown through a variety of ways, such as, baking, cooking and her constant caretaking. Being the oldest of her siblings, she helped raise her brothers and sisters; a caretaker at heart. Jane enjoyed her church family (Seventh-day Adventist) and had a deep love for Jesus. Her favorite hymn was Face to Face and loved singing Christmas Carols with her family. Her last song she sang before passing was Silent Night, with her youngest child. Jane is survived by her 5 children: Duane Troge and wife Judy of Baraboo, WI; Janet Atkins and husband Terry of Pasco, WA; Nancy Burmood of Vancouver, WA; V. Ronald Troge of Kennewick, WA and her youngest, Carol Ann Acob and husband Jose of Kennewick, WA. Jane has 21 grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren and several great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Betty Anne Omstead of Vancouver, WA; Donna Schleiger of South Carolina and A. Roy "Sonny" Supplee Jr. of Puyallup, WA. Preceded in death are her parents; her sisters Belle & Florence "Tut" and brother, Ernie; as well as other family members. A memorial service may be held in the Spring of 2017; one of Jayne's favorite seasons, as she loved the blooming flowers. Jane was a good woman, wife, mother and grandmother. She will be greatly missed.
