Obituary for Kelli Denise Fannin (Harris)

Kelli Denise Fannin, born May 9th, 1969, in Lodi, CA. She was granted eternal rest on November 8th, 2023, following a battle with cancer, which she battled twice in her life, once at the age of 19 and survived and again at the age of 54. She passed in the arms of her son, Austin and husband, Chris in a family hug.

Kelli is survived by her husband, Chris of Stockton, CA., and her son, Austin. She is also survived by her mother, Bonnie, and two brothers, Kevin (Cheryl) and Bryan (Lorrie) and nephew, Cameron.

Kelli attended Manteca High School and San Joaquin Delta College Nursing School. Kelli never stopped working, her creative mind was always active. After having a successful career as a registered nurse, she created her own, very successful, business, Kelli Fannin Quilt Designs. However, after nursing and before her business, the joy of her life, her son Austin was born.

She was an incredibly kind, compassionate and dedicated mother. Her creativity overflows to her son’s education to this very day. When Austin was in grammar school, she helped with the school’s literacy night and other projects.

By the way! Kelli was an incredible musician and pianist. She loved traveling as a family, especially to national parks. Her favorite was Grand Teton National Park. She cherished going to Golden State Warriors basketball games with her father and brothers. She loved dogs, mostly newfoundlands and goldendoodles.

She was a devout Christian. God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Bible were the foundation in her life.

She once wrote for her late father, Glane. “Go with God, Dad”. So we will say the same, “Go with God, Kelli” you were a wonderful mother, daughter, wife and sister. Words can never describe how much you will be missed. Thank you for your memory. I love you.
