While growing up, Tori lived in Louisville, Colo.; Springboro, Ohio; Richland; Knoxville, Tenn.; and Las Vegas. At each location, Tori established close relationships with her pleasing and outgoing personality that was admired by many.

Tori’s impact on others was reflected on her Facebook site where numerous gracious comments and thoughts were provided by friends and family on how Tori positively impacted their lives.

Tori was a full-time student at Northern Arizona University majoring in business administration and marketing. She was completing her summer classes in anticipation of a fall semester graduation. She was an outgoing person with a lovely smile that greeted everyone she met. She loved her friends and family and was always making new friends in whatever activity she was involved in. She was a gracious person who wanted to make others “happy” and enjoy life to the fullest.

Tori had many hobbies, which included camping, off road motoring, fishing, traveling, social networking and watching sporting events along with playing many sports.

Tori is preceded by her death of her grandparents, Arthur and Travis Kennedy of Oak Harbor and William and Mary Ann Kelso of Kennewick. Survivors are aunts Kay Bailey of Long Beach, Calif.; Robyn Kelso-Weatherly of Kennewick; Myrtle Heller of Mount Vernon; Soon Kennedy of Oak Harbor; Millie Kelso of Marcela, Ore.; and Tamara Cellers of Springfield, Ore.; and uncles Leonard Kennedy of Oak Harbor; William Kelso of Marcela, Ore.; Leonard Heller of Mount Vernon; and Gary Weatherly of Kennewick.
