December 18, 1939 - May 24, 2021
Jana Dee Kelley, 81, of San Diego, California. Died peacefully May 24, 2021, in her home following a short battle with lung cancer. “Dee Dee” was born in Gentry, AR on December 18, 1939, to Edward C and Elizabeth F Davis Kelley. Jana Dee graduated from Gentry High School in 1957 and went on to the University of Arkansas where she earned a Bachelors degree in Science in Home Economic Education and Dietetics. After an Internship in Indianapolis and job opportunities in Tulsa, New Orleans, Joplin, and Columbia MO, she then obtained her Master of Science in Food Systems Management from Colorado State University. She worked as a Clinical Instructor then went on to become a Dietetic Internship Director for the Veterans Administration Health Care System. Jana was an incredible woman who lived her life to the fullest and on her own terms. Jana was a member of the Lions Club of Scripps Ranch, and President of the Lions Club from 2006- 2007. Through the Lions Club she wrote the proposal for funds to the club, which were to be used during a medical mission. Jana also served as a communion server at Hope United Methodist Church where she reflected the love of Jesus by the things she said and how she lived her life. She loved to travel. She loved her family and friends, her two little doggies Mimi and JoJo, coffee and wine and trips to the beach among many things. She had a huge heart and loved well and received that love 10-fold from all those around her. Jana Dee is survived by all nieces and nephews, each and every generation she loved like they were her own. While she may be gone, she will certainly never be forgotten, and her memory will remain with generations to come. A graveside service is planned for July 2, 2021, at 10 am at the Dickson Cemetery, Gentry Arkansas.
