Obituary of M. Ann Kelley
M. Ann Kelley went to heaven on December 20, 2020. Ann was born on her grandparent's farm in 1932, to the late Wilma (Critz) and Thomas Murphy. She was raised in Liverpool and graduated from St. John the Baptist School in Syracuse, where she met her high school sweetheart & husband to be Jack Kelley. In 1961 they bought their house in Baldwinsville, where she resided until 2019. She retired from P&C warehouse where she worked in the accounts payable office. Always proud of her Irish roots, she loved to say she was a "Murphy" before she was a "Kelley". Every night she would have "Party Time" where she would have a glass or two of red wine, AKA "Nectar of the Gods"! While she would say that faith and family were her greatest blessings in life, she never missed the chance to pull out a picture from her wallet of her beloved miniature American Eskimo – Molly Kelley. Ann was predeceased by her husband; John C Kelley, and sister and brother-in-law Mary Sue & Arnold Fleming. She is survived by her children; Patrick (Marcia) Kelley, Kathy (Jim) Honsinger, Grandchildren; Stephanie (Brandon) Ewald, Timothy (Becky) Honsinger & Mary Beth Honsinger. Great-grandson, Henry Ewald. Stepbrother Peter (Ann)Bourlier, plus many nieces & nephews. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Augustine's Church in Baldwinsville. Services will be for immediate family only due to Covid with hopes to celebrate her life with a memorial service at a later date.
