Isabel Marie Kelly:(February 21, 1937 - October 26, 2018)
At 1:16am Isabel Marie Kelly (Dalton) took her last breath in the arms of her family at home in Harbour Main on Friday October 26. We were surrounded by her loving Home Support Workers…the angels to the Kelly/Walsh/Comeau family. Mom lived her life dedicated to her family, her God and her community. She joined her husband and soulmate, William P. Kelly in heaven where we imagine them dancing and having a Boston Cream together. Loving her and missing her this week are son Eddy, daughter-in-law Jaime Comeau, grandkids Nemiah and Naeem, daughter Catherine Ann, son-in-law Wayne Walsh, grandkids Xavier and Sibéal. Mom was blessed with a large family. We imagine them having a fine chat today while Mary Alexis plays guitar. She joins her parents Ann and Nicolas Dalton, brothers Richard (Elizabeth), Patrick (Patricia), Gregory (Gertrude), Lawrence, Charles, sisters Bernadette (Cyril), Margaret (Frank), Annie, Florence (Jim), Kathleen and brother-in-law John. Mom leaves her big sisters Madeline (Raymond) and Ester and her sister-in-law Margaret. From the Kelly family Mom joins Rose and Richard Kelly, brothers-in-law Gerald (Betty), Edmund, Edward and sister-in-law Nellie. She was loved by Harriet, Theresa (Bob), Mary, Tony (Lucy) and Ron (Nora). Mom was blessed to have dozens of nieces and nephews, close friends, friends of her children and grandchildren and circles of friends from across Canada. Supporting us and loving us are the amazing Mrs. Betty Walsh as well as Maurice and Odette Comeau. Mom spent 16 years of her life as Sister Mary Xavier. She loved her time with the Presentation Sisters and was dedicated to the many communities she served and students she educated. Her 40 years as teacher gifted her so much light. Mom lived for almost 11 years with Dementia. In these final years, she taught us all strength and courage, every day, as she fought to stay with her family as long as she could. Our family was supported by an amazing team of medical professionals. Special love going to Dr. Robbins (and her team), our community health nurses in Holyrood – Alana, Melissa, Jeaniel and Jill. To the dedicated Home Support Workers- Florence (Nano), Bride, Maggie, Lisa, Teresa and the many others over the past five years – thank you for helping us keep Mom home. We love you all so much. We will be celebrating a life well lived on Sunday and Monday at Dunphys Funeral Home in Holyrood, 2-4pm and 7-9pm each day. Our kids will be with us and we welcome lots of laughter from your own. Please come to share your stories and memories of our remarkable mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, community member and beautiful human. Mom’s funeral will be in St. Peter’s and Paul’s Parish in Harbour Main on Tuesday October 30th at 10:30am. We ask, if you can, to wear something pink or purple in honour of her favourite colours. Mom died after living the most giving life, rooted in gratitude, service and love. As her language became limited, she left us with one message – Love everybody. Donations can be made to a fund we are creating that will support youth who are helping cultivate and build community through service to others.
