Obituary

Elizabeth Jones Kelly was born October 23, 1913 in the village of Mount Healthy, Ohio. Weighing only 3 pounds, her incubator was a small box placed on the oven door. Miraculously she survived going on to enjoy a full and happy life spanning 104 years. She was a devoted wife to the late Irvin D Kelly for 62 years and a loving mother to three daughters: Marlene Kelly, Yvonne Kelly, and Debarah Brooks, a cherished grandmother of six, and beloved great grandmother, great great grandmother, and great great great grandmother of 19.  Her career included 19 years with the Cincinnati Board of Education, as well as manager of the downtown YMCA cafeteria and executive dining room manager for Federated Department Stores. She was also a realtor, working alongside her husband, Irvin, a real estate broker.

Elizabeth served in several leadership roles including president of Hamilton County Republican Women's Club, President of the  Optimus Welfare Club, and Board Member of the Episcopal Church Women of Southern Ohio. For over 89 years she was a faithful member of the Episcopal Church, 54 of which she was a member of Grace Episcopal Church.  When not serving her community, Elizabeth enjoyed playing cards, especially Bridge and Kings in the Corner. A fashionista at heart, she was meticulous with her appearance, particularly attentive to her nails and hair. Elizabeth knew no strangers and was truly God's ambassador of love throughout her 16 years of residence at Twin Towers, lovingly giving copies of her favorite prayer to one and all. She was the light of our lives. She was and will always be loved and remembered.
