Kelly Ann Couturier

February 17, 1959 — February 7, 2023


Kelly Ann Couturier (63) was born to the late Gerald & Dorothy Gardner on February 17, 1959, in Brunswick, GA. She was their youngest daughter together. Kelly passed away on February 7, 2023, in her home in Columbus, OH. She was surrounded and cared for by her children in her final years. Kelly was a loving wife to her late husband, Barry, for 33 years. Kelly met Barry when he was stationed in the U.S. Navy, and they quickly fell in love and were married from 1983 – 2016 when Barry passed. They had 5 children together and 1 granddaughter: Britne West and her daughter Kayla, Brian Couturier, Julie Couturier, Megan Couturier, and Taylor Couturier.


Kelly would say that her greatest accomplishment in life was her children. Kelly loved to talk about them and support them in their successes. She was a “proud mama,” she would say. In addition to being a loving wife and mother, Kelly would say that her favorite professional accomplishment was being a marketing director in her hometown, Nashville. She loved to work on advertising, and it carried over into her love of scrapbooking. Among her other interests were music, dancing, horses, going to the movies, and playing with her feline companion, Mason. 


Kelly is survived by her daughter Britne West (Terry West) and granddaughter Kayla of Nashville, TN. Son Brian Couturier (Dustin Scott) of Columbus, OH. Daughters Julie Couturier and Megan Couturier of Columbus, OH. Her feline companion, Mason. And her siblings Sandra, Steve, Brad, Owen and Caroline, along with their families.


Kelly is preceded in death by Husband Barry Couturier, Son Taylor Couturier, Father Gerald Gardner, and Mother Dorothy Gardner
