As per reports, Julia Lee Kelley has five children, 30 grandchildren, 88 great grandchildren, 49 great great grandchildren and one great great great grandchild.

Given the ongoing pandemic, the family’s usual celebration, which takes place in the form of an annual reunion each year, couldn’t happen, but a drive-thru celebration was held.
