OBITUARIES

KELLY, Mary F. (Stevens). November 13, 1922 – January 11, 2018. Mary Kelly and her husband Roland were long time summer residents in Port Hilford where they enjoyed Indian Harbor Lake, and their former cottage. Mary was a member of the Women’s Society of Port Hilford, and had many friends in the community. She was a frequent visitor to the Library, as well as the shops and museum in Sherbrooke. Life long family friends were the Brushett's (Ethel and Don) who lived nearby on the Lake. She was also close friends with Stella Brushett from Port Hilford and Sherbrooke, who recently passed away. Mary enjoyed very good health most of her life, but later in life she suffered from Alzheimer's. She passed away at age 93 in a Nursing Home in Barrie, Ontario. Someone once described Mary as a spark plug – always up for a good time. She had no hesitation to get out on water skis, winter skiing, boating, or eating exotic foods. She was predeceased by her husband Rev. Roland Kelly who passed away in 2007. She is buried with her husband in the Cherry Hill Cemetery in Port Hilford.. Mary and Roland were happily married for over 60 years.
