Mrs. Kelly, a retired schoolteacher, was my grandparents' neighbor for about forty years. She was a sweet lady. She was the widow of Thomas J. Kelly. She was also the mother of three daughters, including the late Julianne Frances Kelly, who was murdered along with 269 other people in the Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988. Mrs. Kelly gave money for a playground to be built in her daughter's memory at the Riverdale School in the Riverdale section of Dedham, Ma. The playground has since been replaced, but it still bears her daughter's name.
Later in life, Mrs. Kelly moved into a nursing home where she passed away in 2007, of natural causes.
