Dorothy Sue Kelch, 76 of Orlando, FL was welcomed into the loving arms of Jesus on June 9, 2019. She was born March 5, 1943 to Homer E. & Nan Elizabeth (Wooten) Tinklepaugh.

Kelch, daughter Wendy Kelch Barber and husband Greg, son Benjamin (Ben) Kelch and wife Kristin, son Shawn Kelch and wife TONI, grandchildren Madeline Kelch, Kacie Kelch, Allison Kelch and Memphis Tarlton and one sister Jane Elizabeth (Beth) Tinklepaugh Davis.
