Raven Leigh Kelly Ellington, 40, of Henrico, Va. (originally of Emporia), passed away after an extended illness on Saturday, August 18, 2018 surrounded by her family and friends.

Raven is survived by her childhood sweetheart and husband, William R. “Bill” Ellington, her loving parents James B. Kelly and Prudence L. Harris, devoted sisters Anna R. Kelly and Laura E. Kelly (fiancé Tony), her grandfather Dr. John J. Kelly III, and her aunts Alma P. Kelly and Ann W. Kelly and their families.

Raven held her friends close during her time on earth. Kelly K., Katie, Tara, Ray, and Kelly M., as well as her beloved pets Brutus and Princess, will remain with her in her eternal heart.

Narrice “Gunga” Harris, and Helen H. “Grandma” Kelly; her baby sister Lauren Kristen Kelly; stepmother Marilee Kelly; uncle John J. “Johnnie” Kelly IV; and friends Bonnie, Bruce, and George.

Raven’s soul is now healthy as she sits in the palm of her Heavenly Father and basks in the warmth of those that patiently awaited her arrival to her eternal home.
