Betty Dan Kelley (Post), 92, beloved Mother and Grandmother, passed away Saturday, August 12, 2023 in Yukon, Oklahoma. She had been a resident in Yukon since October 2011 when she moved into Spanish Cove Retirement Center.
Betty was born in Abilene, Texas on September 5, 1930 to Daniel Herman Post and Mary Pearl Gladden Post. She shared this birthday with her identical twin sister, Mary Ann.
Betty grew up in Abilene, graduating from Abilene Christian High School and attending Hardin Simmons College. Betty became a school teacher, teaching first-grade. She was well loved by all of her students.
While at Hardin Simmons College, she met the love of her life, Gene Marlo Kelley. They married in April 1951 and enjoyed over 58 years of marriage until Gene's passing on August 5, 2009. To this union, they welcomed two sons, Gene Michael and Patrick Marlo. They lived in Abilene, Duncanville and Irving, Texas.
For many years, Betty and Mary enjoyed attending the International Twins Convention throughout the United States, often winning top awards.
