Sheila Eileen Kelly
Sheila Eileen Kelly from the Crestwood section of Yonkers died peacefully at home on the morning of June 9, two months shy of her 92nd birthday. Sheila was a woman of quiet faith and broad intellect. Creative to a fault and a lover of words and language, she lived a life centered around her family. Her greatest pride was being a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother – all roles in which she excelled.

Kelly from Ellicott City, MD; Anne (Rob) K. Methven from Midlothian, VA; Marie (Kew) Kelly-Yuoh from New Rochelle, NY; John (Pamela) P.L. Kelly from Bronx, NY and Sheila Eileen Kelly who died in 1980.
