Myron Kelso



Myron E. Kelso, age 87, of Coffeyville passed away on January 29, 2016 at Freeman West Hospital in Joplin Missouri.

Myron was born on May 19, 1928 in Havana, KS to Leslie and Hazel (Johnson) Kelso. Myron attended and graduated from Havana Schools. He continued his education at Kansas University where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Pharmacy. After graduating in 1954, Myron moved to Wichita to start working for Dockum's Drug. While attending KU he met Jo Anne Skinner and the couple were united in marriage on June 11, 1955. They were blessed with three children. In 1963 the family moved to Coffeyville where Myron started his partnership with Columbia Drug. Later Myron sold his share and started working for Coffeyville Reginal Medical Center where he retired as Director of Pharmacy in 1994. Myron was an avid reader, he also loved watching KU sporting events, and he enjoyed camping, fishing, and traveling with his family.
