She was born Feb. 25, 2007, in Springfield, the daughter of Deanna M. Day-Beever. Kelli attended Ball Elementary Preschool in Chatham. Her mischievous grin would light up a room. She enjoyed fishing, chasing butterflies, playing dress up, putting together puzzles and reading books. She liked listening to Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Luke Bryant and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." She was a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan.
Surviving besides her mother, are her grandparents, Lori Day, of Springfield, formerly of Kankakee, and Tim Day, of Springfield; great-grandparents, Thomas and Gail Beever, of Springfield, formerly of Kankakee, and Trudy and Don Day, of Springfield; godmothers, Fawn Hilton and Ann Szabo, both of Springfield; and three cousins, Taylor, Zach and Erin Beever, of Mansfield.
Her dog, Bailey "Bay Bay," preceded her in death.
