Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 10:30 am at Wisconsin Memorial Park Cemetery Chapel, 13235 W Capitol Dr, Brookfield. Visitation will be held from 9:30 am until the time of services at the chapel, entombment to follow.
Kelly was born on October 5, 1974 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the late Jean and Allen Monroe. Kelly came into this world with a lot stacked against her. She was fiercely independent, headstrong and quite the fighter. Kelly never let anything stop her, would not take no for an answer and demanded to do everything she set her mind to doing. Despite all the stares and ridicule, she never wanted to be seen as different or handicapped. She was such a smart, beautiful and brave woman.
Kelly watched wrestling with her grandpa when she was little which fueled her love of WWF/WWE on TV. Kelly was so excited to get the opportunity to go to a live wrestling event in Chicago. Her other love was bowling with Special Olympics. She would call us after and tell us her score and how many strikes and spares she got that day. Kelly also enjoyed watching crime shows, especially NCIS, doing latch hook crafts and filling out word search and sudoku puzzles.
She always looked forward to spending time with her sister Colleen and her husband Jim, along with her five nieces and nephews, Sarra, Amanda, Ryan and twins Evan and Aaron.
Thank you to everyone who loved Kelly and helped her keep as much of her independence, freedom and choice as possible. You are all greatly appreciated and never given enough thanks for what you did and do.
Kelly was loved so very much by all her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.
Herman-Taylor Funeral Home is honored to be assisting the family.
