Kelly Ann “Grammoo” Pauley, 56, Kokomo, passed away Saturday, May 11, 2019, at St. Vincent Hospital in Kokomo surrounded by her children. She was born April 2, 1963, the daughter of Jan (Sayre) Ruman.
Kelly was a 1981 graduate of Griffith High School and a 1996 graduate of Don Roberts Beauty School where she earned her Cosmetology License. She worked as a teacher’s aide for Maple Crest School and as a paraprofessional for Bona Vista.

She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and watching game shows. Kelly also enjoyed going to the movies with her friend Brenda Nottingham and getting together for family cook outs. She battle a lot of illness throughout her life and she fought as long as she could.
