Mayme Kelley, left, embraces her daughter, Louanne Cobb, after Kelley was named 2017 Mother of the Year on July 16.
‘There will never be another Mayme’

Biologically, Louanne Cobb is an only child, but she will be the first to admit that she has shared her mother with a host of Owen countians over the years.
Whether it was chaperoning a school dance, teaching Sunday school, hosting a New Year’s Eve party for the kids of Owenton or providing a safe place for children at the Rebel’s Den, Mayme Kelley has devoted much of her life to Owen County’s youth.
It was that devotion that led Kelley to the Owen County Fairgrounds arena July 16 to accept the 2017 Mother of the Year award.
