Following her death, a family member took to social media to open up about Kelly's battle

"You have suffered long enough, you were brave, strong and tough in your life. The battle you fought was long and hard, but now you're free from the pain. It has hurt all of us when you left this world, it left me broken-hearted with nothing to say. I know in my heart you are in a better place, but I swear I’m going to miss your beautiful face. God just needed you to join his garden of flowers, you will always be remembered every single day, from the smile on your face to the things you would say. You don’t need to fight anymore, just let go. You will remain in my heart always and forever."
