Colleen Margaret Salkin (Kelli), age 59, died on June 30, 2022, at the Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care, Joan and Howard Waltz Hospice Home, in Dobson, NC. after a long period of declining health.
Kelli was born March 17, 1963 in Los Angeles, California. She also lived in Jamestown, NC; Reston, Virginia; Haymarket, Virginia; Winston-Salem, NC; and Tampa, FL.

In Winston-Salem, she worked for The Customer Center, Sara Lee Brands, The City of Winston-Salem, and Stokes Partnership for Children, among other places. In Florida, she worked for Chase and Ford.

Mostly, Kelli will be missed for who she was — a good friend, and for her wonderful sense of humor, her kindness, huge heart, and her love for Jesus.

She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Christine and Jerry Davis of Concord, NC; sister Kathleen Salkin of Winston-Salem, NC; niece and great-nephew Robin and Jonah Kumako of Tampa FL; close friends C.J.
