Obituary of Linda A Kelley
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Linda Kelley at the age of 66 years. Linda was a loving and devoted grandmother, mother, sister, aunt, and friend to all whose lives she touched. Linda left us while sleeping peacefully at the Friendship Village care facility, on March 1st, 2023, where she had been receiving dedicated care since suffering a stroke in late February.
Born in Auburn, New York, Linda traveled to Arizona with her family as a young girl, and was a dedicated mother to one son, Randy. Linda’s favorite activities over the years included spending time with her family, chit-chatting with her friends, and watching the Dallas Cowboys play football. In no particular order.
Linda lived what I know she would describe as the best days of her life when she met her true calling of that as a proud grandmother to Nicolas Mariano, or as she fondly called him, “Doodles”, and Jackson Maris. Sacrificing energy, time and her peace and quiet, Linda was happiest when her two grandsons were filling her home with laughter, smiles and crumbs.
Linda will be dearly missed and be forever in our hearts. Linda is survived by her son Randy and his wife Nichole, her grandsons Nicolas and Jackson, her sister Kathy, her nieces Angie, and Tracy, and her nephew Frank.
She was predeceased by her parents Joan and Jack, and sister Marianne.
