Life Story / Obituary


Kelli Anne Guthrie, Vicksburg, MI. Beloved daughter, sister, and friend left this earthly home on May 28, 2016, to be with her Lord. She was 34. Kelli was born November, 4, 1981, in Barrington, IL. She was a 2000 graduate of Vicksburg High School and a 2005 graduate of Western Michigan University. Kelli was a beautiful, outgoing, charismatic and fun-loving soul who was loved by many and will be truly missed. Kelli had a strong love of animals, and always took very special care of her own cats and cared for numerous strays throughout her life. Her greatest gift was the ability to make the people around her smile and laugh. Kelli was a true blessing to those who knew her. She is survived by her father, Thomas Guthrie and mother, Kathy (Carpenter) Guthrie; her brother, Adam Guthrie, and several aunts, uncles, cousins, countless special friends, and her two cats. The family has held a private service. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution in Kelli’s name to your local animal shelter, or the SPCA of Southwest Michigan.
