My aunt wrote her obituary.
Susan M. Kelly,
57, formerly Susan Hoffecker and a former resident of Shavertown,
Dallas and Harvey's Lake, Pa., passed away on Monday, February 9,2009 in West
Palm Beach, Fl. Susan resided in the "Valley" until 1991 when she moved to
Delray Beach, Fl.
Susan graduated from Dallas Senior High School in
1969 and attended Luzerne County Community College. She married Bill Kelly in
1973 and they were married for 20 some years.She had 2 beautiful childen.
Susan's purpose in life was to be a teacher. Not a teacher in the book sense
but a teacher of life's consequences. Susan was an active alcoholic till the
day she died from the disease. She struggled in life not only with the alcohol
demons but with herself. She tried in her own way to let the demons go
but was unable to. She attended AA meetings, she went thru rehabilitation but
the disease of denial and alcohol had a strong hold on her. It is a shame to
not understand the disease and the despair that some continually go thru. It
is a curse.
Susan was a beautiful woman who had a heart of gold and
always a friendly smile. If you were fortunate to meet her in her journey
you would not know the pain that she carried inside her. If you were one of
the few who really knew her, you would feel her pain. She was fun, full of
laughter and antics. She knew how to be a friend to you,even with everything
that she was going thru in her life's struggles. Please remember her fondly as
she would do the same for you because her heart was huge and never had a
disparaging word to speak of anyone. She will be missed dearly. Her father,
Charles Hoffecker preceded her in death in 1990.
Susan is survived by
her children, daughter Amber Kelly Ulmer and husband Josh and her
first unborn grandchild, Josephine, her son Keegan Kelly, and her ex-husband
Bill Kelly all of Nashville, Tn. She is also survived by her mother, Mary
Hoffecker, Delray Beach, Fl., brother Chip Hoffecker, Pompano Beach, Fl and
sister Lori Hoffecker White, Delray Beach, Fl along with 2 nephews, Michael
and Jarrod White and 2 nieces Nicole and Eva Hoffecker,also many Aunts,Uncles
Please pray for her soul.Donations can be made in her honour
to Hospice of Palm Beach County.
A memorial service will be held at a
later date and interment will be at Pine Grove Cemetary in Tobyhanna, Pa.
Also, I am on bedrest. I have been on bedrest for the past week and will be on it for about another 1.5 weeks we think. I have another appt next Thursday.
Just til I get to 35 weeks we hope. I was showing signs of pre-labor so it's precautionary so lil Josephine stays put until at least 35 weeks.
She could decide to stay til 40 weeks, who knows. I was already making some labor changes so we are just taking it easy to make sure she stays put for a few more weeks at least.
That is all for my update.
A pretty heavy one.
I'll be back...later.
