The daughter of the late John Patrick Kelly and Mary Kate (Gilligan) Kelly, Elizabeth was born on December 23, 1927 in New York City, NY.
Elizabeth was blessed with a strong faith. She loved to say the rosary everyday, praying for others, spending time with family, laughing and always wearing a smile on her face. She was a loving and caring person, a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, sister-in-law and aunt. She was always thinking of others first. “To know her was to love her.”
