Our sweet Kailen Osby Adams, age 26, went home to Jesus on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. She is now pain free and in the presence of the King. Kailen was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend. She loved so many and was loved by so many more.
Kailen graduated Murray County High School in 2011. Afterwards, she began her career with Murray County E-911. Kailen was a dedicated communications officer, helping to preserve life, limb and property of the citizens and emergency responders of Murray County.
Two years ago, after bravely battling brain cancer for the 2nd time in her life, Kailen retained her employment with Murray Co 911. Through pure determination and hard work she had to relearn even the simplest of basic life skills all over again. She came back to work with few limitations to a career she truly loved. Kailen went on to be an instrumental and valuable part of the training team and helped to successfully train others in emergency communications. This is truly a loss felt not only throughout the 911 department, but also the entire public safety community. In the tradition of saving lives as she has done countless times in her career, her final act in this life was that of helping and serving others by being an organ donor.
Kailen joins her maternal grand parents, Carl and Carolyn (Singleton) Ballew in Heaven. She is survived by her husband, Tyler Adams and two beautiful daughters, Chandler and Baleigh Adams; parents Daniel and Karen (Kaye) Ballew Osby, brother Matt (Tyler) Osby and sisters Emmali Osby and Carley Osby all of Chatsworth; Grandparents Margie (Southerland) and Bobby Tate; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins; special friends Kenzie Walston, Melissa Walston, Tiffany Keener and Missy Bingiel.

Together we will fight for a cure until no other kids are robbed of their childhood, no other siblings lose their best friends, and no other parents have to bury their babies.
