Mrs. Kelly was my kindergarten teacher. I thought she was wonderful. I have such wonderful memories of her. I was left handed and she worked hard with me to learn to tie my shoes.
My deepest sympathies to all of you.”
Pat was a dear friend for
many years. Her husband
and my husband were lifelong friends from early
school days through college.
Pat always did her best
no matter what job was
before her. She will be
greatly missed. She was
indeed a lady.
Our sons, Doug and Bryan who are now 36 and 35 years old, were both kindergarten students of Mrs. Kelly's. She taught the children with skill and with a motherly touch. When I helped in the classroom, I was impressed how organized she was, and how all the children knew what to do with just a simple explanation from her. It was fun for parents who came to help with some hands-on activities. We requested her for our younger son because of the genuine love and care our older son received in her classroom. They both graduated from college and and are doing well. Because of her, they have fond memories of that first year of school. None of us will ever forget her. With heartfelt condolences, Doug and Kathy Parthemore”
