Kelly Renee Morley

July 9, 1962 - March 20, 2018

     Kelly Renee Morley, devoted daughter of Robert F. Morley and Nancy J. Morley passed away March 20, 2018 with her family by her side. Born in San Carlos California on July 9, 1962, Kelly was the youngest of seven children.
     A 1980 graduate of McKay High School and employee at American Can Company in Salem, Dooger’s in Cannon Beach, Woodburn Ambulance and the Silverton Wilco, Kelly was a very giving individual, resourceful, gregarious, hard working with a fabulous wit and sense of playfulness and in the end amazing perseverance and grace.
     Our Kelly was also a creative gardener, passionate animal advocate, loyal and loving aunt who took great delight in sharing her table with all.
Adventurous, she traveled to South America, sailed in open ocean waters, learned to windsurf and once stared down a stalking cougar.    
     We will miss our Kelly Belle dearly and know that there are many angels in the Willamette Valley that touched her life.  We will never know all your names, but please accept our deepest appreciation and sincere thanks for the role you each played in her life. 
     Kelly is survived by her mother Nancy Morley, brother Michael Morley and sisters Kim Morley Franklin, Michelle Noble, Katie Morley, Krista Morley and twin Tracy Hoevet.
A private family ceremony will be held but if inspired, a donation in Kelly’s name to your local Human Society would be her wish.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was fortunate enough to work with Kelly at the Can Co and her and I had some great laughs. She will truly be missed.

Kelly was a very fun loving gal, with one great smile & laugh.  She is the twin sister to my wonderful daughter-in-law Tracy.  Rest in peace sweet Kelly.
It is hard to believe you are gone.  I love you..


I was truly blessed to be in Kelly's life as a lover, a confidant, a clown and a true friend......... for the past 37 years. There is absolutely no doubt that knowing Kelly has made me a better person. Thank you so very much Kelly Morley, I'll love you forever!

Kelly was a joy to work with at American Can.  Her smile was infectious and helped the morale of all she touched.She will be missed.

My sincere condolences to the Morley family.  Kelly had an amazing ability to light up a room with her infectious smile and accommodating personality that made others feel so welcome. She was truly one of the hardest workers I have ever known, who could out work almost anyone.   Kelly had a true passion for gardening and she could spend hours taking care of plants while enjoying every moment doing so.  It was never a chore for her.   Her love and compassion for animals was a sight to be seen and was a loyal friend. I am sad to learn of her passing.
