Welcome to the Official Memorial Page for Kelly Ann Fleming (1983-1999) who was sadly taken from us in the Columbine High School Massacre on April 20, 1999.
Kelly Ann Fleming was born on January 6, 1983 to Don and Dee Fleming. She was born in Phoenix, Arizona. She had a sister name Erin.
Kelly Fleming and her family moved to Littleton from Phoenix, Arizona 18 months before the shooting. Her father Don said they scoured the area looking for a good neighborhood where their daughters would be safe. Kelly was a shy and creative girl who loved Halloween and was an aspiring songwriter and author who wrote many poems and short stories based on her life experiences. She had been writing an auto-biography on her home computer: She started when her mom's water broke and had gotten as far as her fifth year. She often went to Columbine's library to write; her stories often had happy endings.
Kelly was learning to drive and wanted to get a job at a day care center, and save enough money to buy a Mustang or a Corvette. She longed to be able to drive so she could return to Phoenix for a visit or go on road trips. She loved to read, especially books about vampires. One day she hoped to be a published author and often entered writing contests.
Her mother, Dee, remembered Kelly coming home from school two months before the shooting, saying: "I'm not shy any more."
On April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School, two Students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold came to school with guns and explosives. Kelly was in the library when this happened. When the shooters came into the library, they killed and wounded many, Kelly being one of the among killed. She was 16 years old when she was killed.
