Obituary Notices and Memorials


KINNEY, Tiffany Crystal 35 years old, passed away Mar. 21, 2017 in Palmdale, Calif. Tiffany was born Sept. 14, 1981 in Lancaster, Calif. and raised by her father, JulioOrtiz Jimenez, and mother, Lynnette Kelley Ortiz. She was the firstborn of 8 children and spent her childhood being the best big sister. Her enormous heart for her family made her a great cook and handyman. She was a little heavy-handed with the seasoned salt, but no matter what, it was made with love. Her gorgeous smile and hilarious sense of humor created contagious laughter everywhere she went. On April 15, 1999, she and the love of her life, Charles Cadel Jr., welcomed their son Charles Cadel III. Becoming his mother was her greatest achievement and made her heart grow even more than seemed possible. She was incredibly proud of her family and is survived by grandmother Maurine Harrold, mother Lynnette Ortiz Kelley, father Julio Ortiz Jimenez, son Charlie Cadel; brothers: Matthew Roach, Joshua Roach, Nicholas Roach, and Jonathan Ortiz; sisters: Adrianna Kelley, Jennifer Ortiz, and Yasmina Ortiz, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Her laughter will be sorely missed and joyously remembered. John Wooden said, 'The most important thing in the world is family and love.' Tiff lived as if these words were her own. Tiffany is greeted in heaven by her grandfather Patrick Kelley, uncle Benjamin Kelley, and nephew Neelai Velasquez Ortiz. Memorial services will be 10:00am, April 1, 2017 at Hicks Mortuary in Littlerock, Calif., and graveside service at 1:00 pm at Joshua Memorial Park.
