  1. Prayers for Jason and your beautiful children. Kelly was my very first friend growing up on Cherry Hill Road. She had a huge impact on my life just because she took me to church and youth group. I will never ever forget Kelly and the impact that she had on my life. Her love for God was even evident when she was little. Kelly, your suffering is over and you are in the care of God. Prayers for Jason, Children, Marlene, Roy, and family. Hugs and prayers.

  2. Esther and I would like to extend our sympathy to our friend Pastotr Jason and his beautiful children at their tremendous loss. Every since we first met bro Jason and Kelly while they worked at Fbc we knew they were a great couple. We were in their Sunday school class and appreciated the love and care shown to us. When they moved to Quincy we knew God would use them and he has. As you walk through this dark valley just know we love and our praying for your family. May God bless you and your family going forward. Thank God you will see her again. We know she is in heaven doing better than all of us her. We send our love and prayers. Larry and Esther Johnson

  4. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15

    She was precious in friendship, precious as a wife, precious as a mother, precious as a pastor’s wife, and is now a precious memory for all who knew and loved her. The good news is twofold: 1) She is in Heaven and cancer free. 2) There will be a reunion…

  5. I grew up living next door to Kelly in Paradise and have great memories of cold mornings waiting on the school bus with her. I am so terribly sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts are with her family and sending my condolences to them. Thanks for keeping me company all those mornings Kelly.

  6. Kelly was beautiful inside and out and had a huge heart for Jesus. Her love for others was very evident.
    Prayers and thoughts are with Bro. Jason and family. May God be with you and comfort you in the days ahead.
    Psalm 34:18a The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;

  7. Kelly was one of my closest friends…a kindred spirit. Losing her is one of the toughest things in life I have faced. Her passing leaves a hole in my heart that only Heaven will fill. So thankful I will see her again.

  8. I am very thankful to have been able to know Mrs Kelly and her husband, Pastor Jason. Brother Jason and Mrs Kelly invested much in my wife when she was part of their youth group in Bourbonnais. I had the privilege of singing in their church at quincy while I was on the Providence Baptist College tour group. Brother Jason took us out to eat and I will never forget the conversation we had. It was very evident that brother Jason loved Mrs Kelly very much and he credited her with helping him to be successful in the ministry. Mrs Kelly will be very missed by many, but especially in our home.

  9. Our hearts are heavy for this loss o f a very special young lady. Her love for the Lord and her commitment to rearing her beautiful children to be saved early and their lives be in service to Jesus. Jason, we hold you up in prayer. You have always been a very special young man in our hearts., watching you mature during the time at PBC. God’s hand is upon you and we pray, and know, the Holy Spirits comfort and peace will sustain you through these next days. We love you and will pray for the Lord to protect and surround you through this journey. May we help in any way, Lord knows we are available, Bro. Fallowfield and I are thankful the Lord allowed our lives to cross yours and your sweet Kelly and her precious testimony. God bless. We love you.

  10. I have only known Kelly and her family for a few short years as they moved next door to us shortly after we moved to our new home. They have been a blessing from day one. Kelly came to be one of my best friends as we shared many moments of borrowing sugar, eggs etc. so we could bake some delicious treats, swapping items for a new craft project, or planning our yearly yard sale. Kelly and her family saw me through one of the worst times of my life. I only hope that I can be there for Jason and the kids as they were there for me. Kelly was a ray of sunshine in this dark world. She always had a smile on her face and a word of hope to share. Kelly by far was one of the very best parts of my life and I will miss her greatly. <3

  11. Our hearts are so heavy with the loss of Kelly. She will be missed greatly. Jason and the children are in our prayers and thoughts may they stay strong through this very tough time.

  12. What an honor it has been to preach at Grace Baptist in Quincy; to eat in the Moncofsky’s home; and to converse with Kelly as we both journeyed through cancer. I cannot express the sadness I have in my heart for Jason’s, the children’s, Kelly’s parents, and Jason’s family’s loss! I pray God’s all suficient grace and comfort in every situation will undergird you. I can rejoice that Kelly is in heaven and has no more sickness, suffering, or sorrow! Her homegoing to the Lord was precious in His sight! Soon we that are saved will be with Our Savior forever and with Kelly again! My deepest love and prayers!
    Evangelist Ted Huston

  14. We loved Kelly and admired her so much! We will ever be thankful for the influence you both had on Mary!! Praying for Gods perfect peace!

  15. Kelly was my roommate at Juniata college. She served as a bridesmaid in my wedding and I in hers. She always spoke of and looked forward to having a family. I know the two most important things in her life were the Lord and her family. My prayers go out to her parents, Roy and Marlene, her husband Jason and to her children.

  16. Love your family so very much. We are praying for you all during this time. Kelly is a beautiful testament of God’s sufficient grace.
