Maureen L. Kelly left us to be with Our Heavenly Father on the morning of December 18, 2014, peacefully in her sleep.
This is not how she came into the world-she was premature, so she was born fighting for her life. From this, she derived her great strength and passion for everything she attempted and ultimately overcame.
She was an ardent lover of music, the arts, education, antiques, animals and all things beautiful. She loved her mountains and her forests, and was fiercely proud of her Irish heritage. She was touched by her multitude of friends and was much-loved by all who knew her in Chesaw and elsewhere. She returned the love ten-fold. “Grandmama” was so proud of her grandson, Robert, a recent graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder. Maureen was 67-years-old.
She leaves behind a daughter, Kerry M. McIntosh (Dale) and grandson, Robert E. Adamson, as well as her dearest best friend, Jenny Mateo.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Patrick G. Kelly.
In lieu of flowers, should you wish, please make any contributions in Maureen’s name to the American Cancer Society.
A Memorial with family and friends to follow this summer.
Bergh Funeral Service and Crematory in care of arrangements.
