Mrs. Belle Kelly, 88 years old, and for four years an invalid, died early last Thursday morning at her home in Edina. She had been bedfast the last four weeks.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. C. S. Young, pastor of the Community Church in Edina, at the late home at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon. Burial was in the Linville cemetery beside the grave of Mrs. Kelly's husband, James Kelly, to whom she was married many years ago, and who has been dead about twelve years.
