Following graduation from Spring Woods High School, Kellie moved to the Texas Panhandle. She became a surgical tech at Methodist Hospital in Lubbock, where she discovered nursing was what she wanted as a career – to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

As an RN, she was the head rotating nurse at BSA on the heart and neuro team for several years. While enjoying her passion for nursing, she met and married Charlie McMordie.

Kellie was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Elizabeth Mary Jones. She is survived by her daughter, Amanda Kay Kincaid; her sister Nora Jones Stidham and husband David; nephews Nathan Stidham and Evan Stidham and wife Jen.
