  6. How does one begin …We met Kaylene in Kirksville when we came to help my brother, Joe, with his fight to overcome pancreatic cancer. Kaylene made such a difference in his life before we came and most especially in his last days. She would talk to him for hours, mix her recipes to help him beat this horrible disease that also took her from us and that I have dealt with the last year. I am cancer free and think of her and Joe daily. We used to talk on the phone after she moved back to GA and in fact still have her last text in my phone. I cannot bring myself to remove it. She and I dealt with our daily cancer experiences and hopefully, I was as supportive to her as she was to me. We had so much in common tho I was a whole 3 months to the day older than she. We were SISTERS for sure. We could say and talk about anything under the sun and did daily when she lived in Kirksville. We shared many meals and stories from our prior lives and so enjoyed reliving each others life. Miss her so much. I still find myself start thinking of calling her to tell her some news or to ask whats happening with her.

    Please know that both my husband, Phillip and I loved your Mother very much because. She was one of the reasons we moved to MO after the loss of my brother. We had stayed after his death and became quite close to her. Such a lovely person who most folks are not as to have the blessing that was KAYLENE. We will never forget her.

    You have our deepest sympathy,

  7. I first met Kaylene when I was in 6th grade in Spring City/Royersford, Pennsylvania. Honestly, she sort of intimidated me at first. I realize now, 29 years later, that the shy, reserved 12 year old I was had never met anyone so passionate and full of life. She was like a whirlwind with her ideas and speeches and causes. Eventually, I grew to love that energy as well as her generosity, but it wasn’t until I was 21 that I fully appreciated it.

    I had moved to Georgia with my husband and new baby boy, Jared who was 6 months old. Dan and I were both nursing students at the Medical College of Georgia and finals for the first semester were finally winding down. It was December 23rd and we were exhausted, with no Christmas tree. We went to a local mega store and were so thrilled to find a huge tree for only five dollars! We excitedly hurried home and cut the top off the tree so it would fit in our apartment. It was then I realized I had no decorations for such a massive tree. Kaylene, who had visited us just as I was ready to lose it, said not to worry, shewould take care of it. The next day she showed up with over 50 handmade velvet bows with gold ties. I hope I thanked her properly. I hope she knew what it meant.
    This is just one moment that stands out to me right now. I love you Kaylene. Thank you!

  8. Sorry to hear of Kaylene’s passing. She was a wonderful person whom I loved to visit with. She was so knowledgeable on almost any subject. Truly a wonderful friend and sister. I know she will be greatly missed.

  9. I knew Kaylene as Ms. Zellner and the Mom of Rana, Rebecca, and Bobby during my High School years in Georgia. A visit to their house was always entertaining and you would be welcomed in regardless of what chaos was currently underway. I don’t know how to untangle where all my lessons of life were learned, but Ms. Zellner surely taught me something of being fearlessly unique and engaging. Yes her piles of unfinished projects might literally threaten to topple on top of her, but who couldn’t smile from ideas that couldn’t be contained by mere space and time. The image of her sewing Rana into her wedding dress as we waited past the time for things to start will always stick with me to remind that love and laughter are more important than planning. Please go in peace Kaylene and my heartfelt condolences to all your family.

  10. I am so grateful to have know Mrs. Ervin in this life. She is partly responsible for the path I am on to learn everything I can about homeopathy & natural medicines. I always enjoyed her zest for life! And I will never forget being introduced to the wonders of 7 layer dip, and the deliciousness of dill dip with fried okra! My love to Rana & Rebecca and the rest of the family in this time of difficulty.

  11. Kaylene, I wish I wish I wish we could have had that one more conversation. The like the good old days. I’ve to this day in my life have not met anyone that could entertain me with conversation to the point I would have to walk away because my brain couldn’t take anymore. But then I wanted more just because you were so damn interesting, never a dull moment. I don’t really ever know if I ever thanked you or if I could ever thank you enough for all the things you taught me just some of the basic life coping skills when I was so young to being confident in myself. Helping me to find my inner self I mean really know what it is and how to use it to my advantage ME! I owe you me, because you gave me me. I don’t know how else to put it. You were such a positive inspiration on me at such a time when I really needed pushing. I never had any of that at home from home, I guess that’s why I never liked dad he never gave me anything in my life, I had to find my path from strangers. I really was at a point and age when i could have gone wrong but you really helped with meditation, and direction self confidence, I might have been a whole different person if not for you. you helped me to believe in myself be a leader not a follower. I will always hold your love and spirit close to my heart. sleep well

  12. it’s hard to know where to start on the positive impact Kaylene had on my life…let’s just say she recognized me, respected me and honored me before i knew what it even meant. Kaylene was who i called when i doubted myself. We learned from each other, but mostly i learned from her. While i’m still in shock that she has gone on to her new journey, i know i’m going to miss her so much. We laughed, so hard,,,and cried together. we fought, we hugged. Our life long friendship was the most honest and caring of just about any friendship i have ever had, and i learned to be that honest in my other relationships, truly meaningful. Some of my most memorable adventures were with Kaylene. I am so grateful for her friendship,,,,going to miss her so much.

  13. My sincere condolences to your family during this time of grief. May your loving memories of Kaylene help you to cope in the days ahead and may you find comfort for the pain in your heart, from God’s promise for a “resurrection” back to life in the future. Jesus said, “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Until this prome becomes a reality may you draw close to God because he cares for you.John 5:28, 29

  14. Mom is the best of the best. She is the most courageous, giving person I have ever known. Even though I will miss her here, I know that she is watching over us. I will be forever grateful for her example and her love. The last time I saw her was at my brother’s wedding. As sick as she was, she still managed to dance, if only for a few seconds. That was just the way she was. One thing that could always be said about her is that she loved her kids and would do ANYTHING for them. I love you Mommy!
