Keli passed away on March 23rd, 2021 in the morning. She was born to her maiden name of Keli Lauvette Lee on January 30th, 1987 in Fort Ord California of Monterey County, to Kelvin Lee and the late Angela Lavette Lee (1/31/2008). She grew up in Killeen TX and graduated in 2005 from Shoemaker High school.  After graduating Keli lived her life, then relocated to San Antonio TX in 2013. In 2014 she married and spent her life with her husband of 6 years Byron C Henderson in her home town of San Antonio  TX for 8 years.

Keli is preceded in death by her mother Angela Lavette Lee, sister Shaneka Shanae Wells, paternal grand parents Willie and Emma Jean Lee. She is survived by her husband Byron C. Henderson,  4 young children Kahilil D. Lee (11)  Byron Jr (6) , Treyvoz (6) and Angela Denise-Lee Henderson (5). Her father Kelvin Lee (Killeen)., 2 sisters Kindra Lee (Killeen) and Dormeka Wells (Hopewell, VA) 1 brother Kelvin J. Lee (Killeen) and maternal grand parents Lawrence Storey (St. Louis MO) and Annie Storey ( Talladega AL), and many aunts, uncles and cousins from out of state.

Keli was known for her unique character  and free spirited ,tender hearted kindness, that everyone she encountered would never forget. You could describe her and people and her friends could tell you, “Yep that’s Keli".  Keli lived her life expressing herself in a lively abstract way. She loved and encouraged herself  that no matter what people thought or said about her , she was beautiful and comfortable in her own skin, and she was admired and loved for the type of person she was.  A gentle prosperity seeking soul, who went out of her way to help people she cared about. She loved to laugh, joke around and was a good people person.  Keli was a hustler for work. Anytime you called her she was out and about making money. During her life on earth, Keli had her struggles, misfortunes and  fell, but continued to get back up and try again.

A  castor iron skillet would knock anyone out cold with one hit,  is how you can describe Keli's determination and strength to get through all of the obstacles she was given in her life on earth. People and things dared to form against her, but No matter what physical or emotional torment and  strains that were put on her,  Keli had her faith, stood by what she believed and  knew how to get through it wearily and heavily on her mind and heart,  but still managed to stay afloat.  She would do anything and everything to make sure her  and her kids were taken care of. A hard working, devoted  and motivated woman , hands down Keli's life was full and she did her best and was a good wife, mother, daughter, sister,  relative and friend to many people that knew her.  At last she can get her well needed rest, with a better life to live for the rest of her eternity.
