Carole B. “Peach” (Heck) Kelley, 77, of North Bend passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, May 23, 2019 surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with ALS. She was the beloved wife of Mickey F. Kelley, Jr. and a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Peach worked alongside her husband Mickey at K&L Auto Sales, Inc., the family business, as a bookkeeper for 25 years. After retiring in the 1990’s she was able to spend lots of quality time at her beloved Summerson Mountain home and had more time for her family and friends.
