Kelly loved to cook and bake, always making extra to share with friends and family. Gardening was a past time she was very fond of as well and always had enough for everybody to enjoy. She was an amazing poet, even getting some printed in Lincoln High’s Bloodstone. She always had a beautiful way of putting the words together just right for whatever the occasion.
Kelly had a great love for animals and had many pets throughout her lifetime. Watching the Green Bay Packers was another thing she enjoyed very much. She took a lot of pride in her Irish heritage. St. Patrick’s Day was something she looked forward to every year.
Kelly was a kind and loving person who was taken from us way too soon and will be greatly missed!
Please join us for a celebration of life for her. This will take place at 11am on Sunday April 7th at Switched Banquet Hall. 2609 State Hwy. 73 Nekoosa, WI 54457. Lunch will be served there.
