It is with great sadness that the family of our beloved Kelli Ruth Gross, 58, of Apopka, FL announces her death at 3:05 p.m. on December 28, 2021.
A native of Radcliff, KY, Kelli was born May 21, 1963, the daughter of the late Russell V. Gross, Sr., and the late Helen E. Gross of Radcliff, KY. She attended Murray State University before marrying and having two children, Billy, and Heather. She traveled to Germany and worked for AAFES, then returned to Ft. Knox continuing to work for AAFES. She then moved to Ocoee, FL and worked for medical billing companies before joining AdventHealth as a Charge Auditor.
Survivors include her son, Billy A. McKinney lll (Traci), Taylor Fiallos (Robert), Chloe Swindle, and Billy A. McKinney IV, of Mascotte, FL, her daughter, Heather Ruth Browning (Robert), Radar Edward, of Apopka, FL, her brothers, Russell V. Gross, Jr. (Phil Carpenter), of Springfield, VA, and Wilber Glen Gross (Coleen), Brad Goldrick, Cory Gross, Kolby Gross, of Winter Garden, FL and a large extended family. Her family and friends will remember her for her kind heart, the love of her dogs, music (especially Christmas music), her love of decorating for Christmas, and doing home projects. Kelli’s highest calling was being a mom and a grandmother. She brought so much joy into the lives of everyone who knew her and will be sorely missed.
A Celebration of Life for Kelli Ruth Gross will be held at a later date.
