Miss Stormi Jolliff of Nashville, departed this life in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at 12:25 P.M. following a brave battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She had attained the age of 19 years, 11 months and 14 days.
Stormi was born in Centralia, on August 8, 1995, the daughter of Mikka Jolliff. She was a 2013 graduate of Nashville Community High School and was elected Homecoming Queen her senior year. She was preparing to begin her second year of college at Kaskaskia Community College in Shattuc.
Stormi was very active in fund raising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She even designed tee shirts to sell to help raise money for the Foundation. In many ways, Stormi was like any typical 19 year old. She enjoyed hanging out with her friends, going to the movies and shopping. She also liked to go out to eat, especially at Taco Bell. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. She attended the First Christian Church of Patoka.
Left to mourn her passing is her mom and dad, Mikka and Daniel Kellerman of Pinckneyville; her father, Jerry Smith of Houston, Texas; two sisters, Zoey Jolliff of Pinckneyville and Madelyn Fromme of New Athens; a brother, Garrett Fromme of New Athens; maternal grandparents, Lindy and Darlene Jolliff of Nashville; paternal grandmother, Linda Carter of Centralia; paternal grandfather, Doug Ragsdale and wife Dana of Newton; step grandfather, Daniel Kellerman and wife Rose of Pinckneyville; great grandparents, Betty Sanders of Patoka, Jack and Mary Ellen Ragsdale of Newton, and Dolores Kellerman of Pinckneyville; “honorary” grandparents, Mike and Marge Curry of Nashville; aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of friends. Stormi touched many lives and she will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
Stormi was preceded in death by great grandparents, Lisle Jolliff, Betty Keys and Dwight Roseman; and step grandmother, Sheila Boyett.
Funeral services were held at the First Christian Church of Patoka, on Tuesday, July 28 with Minister Micah Schnautz officiating. Interment was at the Patoka City Cemetery.
Stormi’s visitation and funeral service were a “C.F.” service. To honor Stormi’s life and courageous battle against Cystic Fibrosis, family and friends are encouraged to wear purple or one of the tee shirts that were designed by Stormi.
