Anna Nathelle McKee of Emmett, passed away peacefully on January 23rd, at her daughter's home, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Wilson (Owyhee county), April 4th, 1922, to Charles Fredrick Kelly and Anna (McPheeters) Kelly. She came from an Irish Catholic family and lived most of her childhood in Owyhee County. She attended Wilson grade school and graduated from Melba High School in 1939.
She received her Associates degree in nursing from Boise State University and practiced at Saint Alphonsus Hospital
Nathelle married her best friend, Bob McKee, on April 9th, 1985. This union blended a family of wonderful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Spending time with family was very important to Nathelle and her family loved her for it. She never complained about anything and her every thought revolved around the health of well-being of her family and friends. There was never a child she met that she didn't treat like her own. The last sentence she said was "I have a wonderful family."
Nathelle was a very talented seamstress, and everyone who knew her treasured her hand-made gifts. She enjoyed painting landscapes, crocheting, crafting and doting on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Nathelle was preceded in death by her father Charles Fredrick Kelly, mother Anna McPheeters Kelly, son James Kevin Thompson, brothers Bob, Creighton, James and sister Barbara Haylett.
She is survived by her daughters Shyla Ann Smith (Larry), Linley Stanger (Virgil) and stepson Mike McKee (Kathy).
