Kasilof resident KellyAnne Elizabeth Williams died Monday, July 19, 2004, after the vehicle she was in became submerged in the Kenai River. She was 16.

"Kelly loved to fish. She hated to eat fish, but loved to catch them. She was kind and loving. She had been through so much, but was finally starting to pull it together. She is our butterfly and will be deeply missed," her family said.
