Kelly Ann HainesHaines, Kelly


Kelly Ann Haines, 49, Edmond, Oklahoma, went to the eternal beach on Saturday, March 19, 2016 after a tough fight with cancer. Kelly was born on November 10, 1966 in Somers Point, New Jersey, to Harold Emerson Scull, Jr and Jean Viola Ray. Kelly graduated from high school in Madison, Ohio in 1985, and then attended the University of Texas in Arlington, Texas. Kelly was a beautiful wife, loving mom, devoted daughter, superstar sister, and incredible friend. She was the sweetest and toughest woman we know, and throughout her battle, she never, ever gave up. Kelly was an amazing Air Force wife and made a home out of 15 different houses in 25 years. She served our Airmen and their families in countless but quiet ways and positively impacted so many lives. She was a teacher, Girl Scout leader, and class helper. She showed us how to laugh, joke, and have fun in every situation! She made every holiday special and filled our home with wonderful surprises! We will always love her and adore her and she will forever be in our hearts.

Kelly is survived by her husband of 25 years, Robert Haines; her daughters Taylor, Libby, Emily, and Grace; her son Landon; her grand daughter Zoë; her sisters Stacey and Brandy; her brother Harold; and her mother Jean. Kelly’s family would like to thank the dedicated staff at the Stephenson Cancer Center and Aspire Hospice for their compassion and care.

A Celebration of Kelly’s Life will be conducted at the Matthews Funeral Home, 601 S. Kelly, Edmond, Oklahoma, on Wednesday, March 23, at 2:00 pm. Enjoy the beach in paradise…we will see you on the other side! Go ride a drop of rain! We love you and miss you.

  1. Our beautiful Kelly Ann…your hubby said it so well. You were the glue that kept it all together…that made every new house into a home in about 15 minutes flat. Every time I think of you I smile and when I think of Black Friday sales I laugh…you studied the ads, made a list and mounted a campaign, then sent out your troops.
    Who is going to remind me to lick the peanut butter off the knife before it goes in the dishwasher?? We will miss you, sweet girl…give Nani, Pa and Bucky a big hug for us.

  2. Kelly, we’re so honored God made our paths cross for a few years while y’all were stationed here at Beale AFB, California, but you have FOREVER left a mark in our hearts. You left so many hilarious moments with all of us wives here with our fun front-porch meetings yet always there to encourage those who were going through more difficult times.

    You will be missed, but I have hope you are resting in the Lord’s arms with no more pain, no more cancer.

    I will be praying for Bob, the kids, your family and friends to somehow continue on without you and they will trust in the Lord as their personal saviour.

  3. Bob and Family

    You are in our prayers may God comfort you and know Kelly is at home. We are there for all of you anytime.

  4. Bob, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May God’s grace and many wonderful memories of Kelly provide healing for you all.

  5. I wish I had known Kelly; we learned through her illness what a wonderful
    person she was. We have sent warm wishes and prayers and will continue those for her family.

  6. Kelly, you were an inspiration to all, with a mischievous smile. I’ll always remember the Christmas when we did the Chinese present game, when we each took a number and the next person could keep or swap with anyone. I loved the gift my number drew! And so did you!! With that Kelly smirk, you sonterred over and grabbed it! Well, I’m glad you did. You made me laugh. You had a way of doing that. You will be so missed. I cry for Bob, Libby, Emily, Taylor, Gracie & Landon, as they will miss you the most. I ask the sweet Lord to Bless your soul and give you eternal peace. Until we meet again, my sweet Cuzin.

  7. Kelly, you left everyone too soon. You are my brother’s daughter and you are with him now. I’ve thought of you much and my mourning is with a smile for I know you are in such a peaceful and beautiful place in our heaven. Thank you, Bob, for giving our Kelly such a nice life. She married a good man, I know. My heart feels for you and all of the family. Grace and Landon are so young to have this alone spot in them. I pray for them both and I pray for everyone. Love from Aunt Marion…
