Kelly Ann Hayworth, 58, passed away after a long illness, in the early evening of Monday, September 9, 2019 . Kelly was born to Carl and Margaret (Yarnell) Hayworth, April 5, 1961 in Knoxville, TN.
Her parents soon after relocated to Lexington, Kentucky where Kelly grew up and graduated from the University of Kentucky. Kelly went on to work in the pharmaceutical industry in sales for over 27 years. Throughout her time as a sales representative, she made numerous long lasting friendships. She was a member of Tates Creek Christian Church. Her involvement in the congregation was extremely valued. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Kelly knew that she had a love for her church that ran deep. Kelly enjoyed gardening and spent much of her time outdoors. She was also a dog lover. Her beloved dog, Sammie, was a joy to her, and always by her side.
Kelly is survived by her mother, Margaret Hayworth; sister, Suzie Hayworth Johnson and brother, Chris Hayworth. Also surviving to cherish her memory are her nephews, Andrew and Lathan Johnson, as well as her niece, Rylee Johnson, all of which thought of her as a very special aunt.

The words 'this isn't fair' have echoed through my mind over the past year as Kelly fought through this illness....at the same time, God is sovereign, and He is always, always good, even through times like this that don't make sense. I take comfort and even joy that Kelly's faith has now become sight and we will see her again on that far shore!

Kelly was a sweet, caring and strong in her Christian beliefs. When she walked her dog Sammie, she would visit with us and our dog and we would talk about our beliefs, dog stories and her health. We and our neighbors will miss her.
Kelly was a beautiful lady inside and out, and she was also tough as nails, strong and independent, She was like a sister to me growing up. I know her faith was strong and is with her Lord, in which we can all rejoice! She was loved by many, and will be missed. Your fight is over! Until we meet on the other side sweet Kelly. Much love and prayers to Chris, Suzie, and Margaret, and the entire Hayworth family.
Many great High School memories. Far too many High School friends gone too soon. RIP 😢
I remember Kelly as a beautiful little blond haired child growing up. She grew into a beautiful confident woman that became a blessing to all that knew her. Kelly was taken from us much too soon but I know that with the faith she had in God that she is rejoicing in heaven with loved ones that have passed before. Kelly May you Rest In Peace and enjoy your heavenly reward.
Kelly will be missed as a part of our Sunday School class and church. She was so faithful and always had a sweet smile when she was with us even when she wasn’t feeling well. It was such a blessing to see Rylee with Kelly on Sunday’s and the love they shared. My prayers are with the family through this difficult time.
