Obituary - Tiffany Nicole Kerlee Tiffany Kerlee
June 10, 1995 - July 23, 2022

A beloved daughter, granddaughter, cousin, niece, friend, & honorable United States Sailor, Tiffany Nicole Kerlee, left this world, unexpectedly, at age 27, on July 23rd, 2022. Tiffany was born in Salinas, California on June 10, 1995. Tiffany grew up on the Monterey Peninsula. At age 17, she graduated from Soledad Unified School District & was thrilled to join the US Navy & began her Naval career in Lemoore, CA. Tiffany attended college simultaneously while working to obtain her Associate's Degree. After four years in Lemoore, CA, she re-signed & continued her Naval career in Fallon, Nevada, where she lived out her remaining years.

Tiffany was a lover of fashion, riding quads, snowboarding in Lake Tahoe, hiking, wakeboarding, collecting giraffes, reading books, eating avocados & French pastries, spending time with her parents and friends, and living her life to the fullest. She was funny, witty, strong, independent, and extremely blunt. Tiffany was nicknamed Tigra, the lady tiger. She was a symbol of power, beauty, and grace. She was fiercely loyal to her family and friends. We will always remember her infectious smile, giving heart, and outgoing personality. Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed.

When you think of Tiffany, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Do not let the loss of her life be in vain. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest and that's what Tiffany did!

She leaves behind her loving parents, Michael and Kat Kerlee and her cats, Rasta, Jordie, and Mimi of Soledad, CA, as well as her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many dear friends, across the United States of America.

Tiffany's services will be held on August 19th, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. at the California Central Coast Veteran's Cemetery, at 2900 Parker Flats Cut-Off Road in Seaside, CA. Her reception will follow by the sharing of her favorite food at Stonie's Tap House & Bistro in Salinas, CA located at 1366 South Main Street in Salinas, CA.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of monetary contributions to the Kerlee family at the reception.
