Kris, age 49, a native of Baton Rouge, LA and a resident of Spring, TX gained her wings Wednesday, March 15th, 2023 at St. Luke’s Hospital after a lengthy health battle. Kris spent many years working in the healthcare industry as a medical assistant until she met her prince charming and became a wife and stay-at-home mother. She enjoyed gardening, crafting, and shopping. Most of all, she loved spending time with her grandchildren. Her fun-loving nature and silly sense of humor will be missed by many. She is survived by her husband, Joey Kelley; daughters, Jordan Dowden (Blake), Logan Clement (Daniel), Alex Cranfield (Chase); step-daughter, Alexis Kelley; grandchildren, Cade Dowden, Stella Dowden, Beau Dowden, Corinne Dowden, Coraline Dowden, Corbin Cranfield, Caleb Cranfield, Romona Roshala; parents, Richard & Sylvia Burgess; siblings, Shane Burgess (Melissa) Daryn Burgess(Alise), Taryn Boone (Tracy); and a host of nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Dr. Fady Saghbini, Dr. Clayton M Barhorst, Dr. Mohsin K. Bajwa, Dr. R. Alexander Mohr, Dr. Rajasekaran Annamalai, Dr. Shahzad, Dr. Khawaja Azimuddin, and Dr. David Hodges for helping Kris fight for her life over the last several years. Visitation will be held at Fellowship Church, 14363 LA-73 Prairieville, LA 70769 on Tuesday, March 21, 2023 from 10:00 AM until the service begins at 12:00 PM.
