Kelli-Lynn Allysa (Claypool) Robertson of Tomahawk went to be with the Lord at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, Alberta on Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014, at the age of 35 years.
Kelli was born July 21, 1979 in Lethbridge. Growing up on the family ranch in Fort Macleod, she became a lover of the land and animals.
Kelli was a natural cowgirl and athlete, competing in school sports, 4-H and team roping; always excelling in academics, Kelli graduated as class valedictorian.
Kelli always enjoyed time spent with her family, friends and acquaintances.
Kelli was a thrill-seeker and was fearless in challenging everything from skydiving and rollercoasters, to scuba diving and even breaking her own horses.
Kelli loved life and will always be remembered for her selfless nature, love of music and unwavering courage that allowed her to live her life fully to the very last moment. This inspirational woman was a blessing to everyone she met and will be dearly missed by people across the continent and around the world.
Kelli will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Matt Robertson; parents, Linda and Darwayne Claypool; brother, Cody (Janessa) Claypool; sister Jacqueline (Graham) Harper; her nieces and nephews, Dalan, Aralynn, Rylee, McKinley and Kali; and her grandfather, Harvey Dersch.
