Barbara Kelly

January 24, 1959 — April 9, 2023

Indianapolis

 

Our sister, Aunt and dearest friend, Barbara Anne Kelly departed this earth on April 9th, Easter Sunday, to join her beloved Bobby and her little sister, Mary Lou.

Barbara was a fun spirited soul, an infinite source of light & laughter, who taught us all not to take life too seriously.

All who knew her, recognized what a giving person, she was sought out ways to help even the neediest, never turning down an opportunity to give until she could give no more.

She heeded the beat of her generous heart, caring for others as a nurse, mentor, confidante, elder, and somebody who could always be counted upon to provide a warm, loving smile and thoughtful words of encouragement & support.

It should come as no surprise that her family and friends loved Barbara passionately.

Barbara had the good fortune to meet, fall in love with and marry her soulmate, Bob Kelly. Together, they forged a life of happiness (he made her laugh all the time), deep friendship and peerless admiration for one another. If ever there was one, this marriage was truly made in heaven. 

Barbara was predeceased by her husband Bob, her beloved mother & father and leaves behind her brothers, Tom, Bill & Bob and his wife Karleen, her brother-in-law, Bill and his wife Kris, her sister-in-law, Patricia, her nieces, Lisa, Nicole, Donna, Anne, Katie, Jennifer, Lisa, Diane nephews AJ, Joe, Greg, special friends Anne Perkins, countless family members and dear friends.

Your long journey is over Barb. May you rest in the loving arms of God, forever.

Barbara loved giving. In this spirit, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
