Born October 15, 1933, Mrs. Kellum was the daughter of the late Joseph and Elma Glidewell Thrasher.  A devoted wife and mother, she shared 74 wonderful years of marriage to her beloved husband, J. W. Kellum who survives.
A devout Christian and member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Mrs. Kellum was a strong-willed lady who believed in hard work and keeping a pristine home.
