Mrs. Kelley Merrill

July 28, 2022


Kelley Dilene Merrill, 59, of Pea Ridge, Arkansas was welcomed into her heavenly home on Thursday, July 28, 2022. She was born February 8, 1963 at Springdale Memorial Hospital to the late Eugene and Veda Treece.

Kelley devoted her life in the caring profession as a nurse and was a true testimony of mercy, grace, compassion, and love. She graduated with Beta Honors at Pea Ridge High School in 1981 and worked as an aid for 3 years while in high school. She then completed her CNA training at St. Mary’s Hospital in 1981 and worked there until attending Northwest Technical Institute and graduating in 1983 as an LPN. Kelley worked at Concordia for two years and Bella Vista Clinic for one year. In 1986, Kelley obtained a position at St. Mary’s Hospital where she worked for twenty five years. She loved her job at Mercy and the people she worked with and had many good memories of the patients she cared for. In her nursing career, she was recognized in 2005 as nurse of the year at St. Mary’s Hospital and in 2009 was NWA best nurse for honorable mention.

Among her many accomplishments, her greatest one was being a devoted, loving, strong wife and mother. She was united in marriage to Ronnie Gene Merrill and they enjoyed 35 years together. In addition, Kelley was a member of Westside Baptist Church and was particularly active with Vacation Bible School and family events. Left to cherish her memory are husband, Ronnie of the home; her daughter, Renae Merrill of Pea Ridge; son, Blake Merrill of Little Flock; Greg and wife, Ginger Treece of Little Flock and many nieces, nephews, and dear family. She was preceded in death by her parents as well as one sister, Heather Dawn Treece.
