Kelli Burdett Johnson passed away on January 20, 2015 in Round Rock, Texas. She was born July 19, 1978 in Waco, Texas to Richard Lee Burdett, Jr and Patricia Sue Burdett. She graduated from Connally High School in Waco, Texas. Kelli lived in Round Rock with her   husband, Evan Johnson and worked at a local specialty pet food retailer. In her spare time she enjoyed crafting, scrapbooking, soap making and video gaming.

Kelli had a tremendous love for animals of all kinds.  She loved her family and friends very much. She considered friendship to be a     rock-solid promise, and she was a true and faithful friend to all who entered her world, no matter how far apart life may have taken them. She was witty, creative, compassionate, talented and generous. She was the strength and comfort for so many that were blessed enough to know her.  It is impossible to express how much she was loved, and how much she will be missed.

Kelli is survived by her husband, Evan Johnson; parents, Richard and Sue Burdett; sisters, Laura Burdett, Heather Holloway and     husband Justin; parents in law, Gary and Paula Horton and Charlie and Shawn Johnson; uncle Larry Burdett; and dear friend, Jenner Cochrum; and many extended family members and friends.
