Kessie Rochelle Ritchey-Gray, 33, of Alexander, Arkansas passed away May 6, 2021. She was born August 14, 1987 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Teresa Gail Dorsey Gryder and Timothy Lynn Ritchey.
Kessie was a certified dental assistant and massage therapist. She adored her two sons who were the most important parts of her life. Kessie was a feisty thing who was very adventurous and had a zest for life and all life’s experiences. She was a spit fire who didn’t have a filter, she said exactly what she thought and meant every word. She was very opinionated and had a colorful way with words. Kessie expressed herself through her body, whether it was with her dancing or by her tattoos. She had a smile that would light up the room and beautiful eyes which will be missed by all who knew her.
Preceding Kessie in death are her grandparents: M.C. Dorsey, Bonnie Dorsey, W.M. Carmel Ritchey, and Daris Ritchey.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory two sons: Bryton Clement and Kye Beard; mother, Teresa Gryder and husband James; father, Timothy Ritchey and wife Gina; sister, Timika Nicholas and husband Eric; and many more relatives and friends who love Kessie and will miss her always.
