Kelly, Mathilda

KELLY, Mathilda (Tillie)

June 2, 1926 - May 25, 2018.

Our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother is finally at peace in her 92nd year. A loving and devoted wife to her late husband Anthony (Tony) Kelly. She is survived by her sister Dianne Rolf, predeceased by sister Pauline Peter and brother, Philip Peter. She will be lovingly remembered by sons Lawrence (Tanis) Kelly, Daniel (Randa) Kelly, Shawn Kelly, and Timothy Kelly (Paula Petrie) and daughter Kathleen Kelly. Beloved grandmother to Alisa (David) Hastie, Cory Kelly, Kyle (Becky) Kelly, Andrew (Amy) Kelly, Anne Kelly (Devendra Pooran), Sara Kelly (Scott Quade) and Thomas Kelly and great grandmother to ten great grandchildren.

Tillie was born and raised in Saskatchewan where she met and married the love of her life Tony Kelly. They became an Air Force Gypsy family travelling the world with their 5 wonderful children making friends wherever they went. They finally settled in Guelph. Tillie found she had an eye for beauty and the ability to make even a plain woman sparkle. She joined Nutrimetics and worked her way up to District Director earning cars and trips around the world. Family was very important to Tillie and she spent years researching and writing her genealogy so her children could understand and enjoy our family history.

Many thanks and appreciation to the doctors and nurses at Palmerston District Hospital, Guelph General and St. Joseph's Health Care in Guelph.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, June 2 (which would have been her 92nd Birthday) at the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 206 Norfolk St., Guelph. Visitation from 12 noon and followed by a service at 2 pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

She will forever be in our hearts and memories.

A tree will be planted in memory of Mathilda Kelly in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest, University of Guelph Arboretum. Dedication service, Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 2:30 pm.
