A relative tells the Assoicated Press that Kelly died Wednesday after suffering from congestive heart failure.
According to the website hillbilly-music.com, Kelly, who performed under the name Judy Lynn, rose to fame after touring with a group of Grand Ole Opry performers as a teenager. She was hired to fill in for Jean Shepherd, who had become ill during a stop in the northwest.
Survivors include a daughter and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Her funeral will be Tuesday at Christ Gospel Church in Jeffersonville.
