KELLY, Mrs. John

One of the oldest residents of the city peacefully passed away at the house of her daughter, Mrs. Lucy Holliday, 708 Thirteenth street, at 2 o'clock this morning. Her death was the result of diseases incident to old age and, while it naturally came as a shock to her children and friends, her demise was not unexpected. She was born in Somerset County, MD (sic) on June 22, 1833, and came to this city in 1863. Her husband, John Kelley, has been dead for many years and she is survived by two sons and three daughters who mourn the loss of a kind and faithful mother. Her surviving children are Jesse F. and William, Mrs. Clara Beason and Mrs. Rebecca Beason, all of this city, and Misses Sarah and Annie at home. The deceased lady was a member of the second Lutheran church and her life was an exposition of the Christian virtues. Kind, sympathetic, and unobtrusive, she leaves many friends outside the immediate circle of her family who will miss her presence in the community. The funeral arrangements have not been completed but the interment will take place on Saturday afternoon.

KELLY, Mrs. Mary Katherine Hauser
 
Mary Katherine Hauser Kelly, 74, Aurora, W.Va., passed away on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012, at her home. Born March 29, 1937, in Aurora, she was a daughter of the late Wade Hampton and Maxine Catherine Close Hauser. She was also preceded in death by her two beloved brothers, Wade Jacob Hauser in 1981, and William "Bill" Hauser in 2011. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Lester M. Kelly, whom she married Jan. 15, 1959, in Fort Walton Beach, Fla.; two daughters, Katherine J. Conklin and husband Robert, Sugar Hill, Ga., and Kimberly D. Kelly, Hedgesville, W.Va.; five sisters, Bonnie Douglas, Flatwoods, Ky., Patricia Stemple, Dean Sisler, and Beverly "Kitty" Myers, Aurora, and Doris Denison, North Palm Beach, Fla.; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. After graduating from Aurora High School in 1954, she attended medical secretarial college in Hagerstown. After successfully completing this course, she was employed in the office of Dr. Pickett in Morgantown, W.Va. On Oct. 28, 1957, she entered the U.S. Air Force and worked as an orderly at Sheppard AFB, Texas, until she was honorably discharged in 1959. Thereafter, her career consisted of various federal civil service positions as she traveled with her husband during his 20 years of service in the U.S. Air Force. She retired from Ft. Jackson Army Post in Columbia, S.C. In the 1970s, she earned a bachelor's degree in business from the University of South Carolina. Following her retirement, she returned to the university as a part-time secretary in the psychology department, a position she greatly enjoyed. In her later years, she was able to fulfill a longtime wish to once again make Aurora her permanent residence. She referred to her home on Stemple Ridge as the Thousand Acre View for its panoramic view of the fields and woods toward Eglon, W.Va., and Backbone Mountain. Mary will be greatly missed by her many family and friends in Aurora and South Carolina. She was a very friendly and outgoing person. Her cheerful conversations were filled with laughter and were always entertaining and amusing, as she tended to jump from subject to subject, often leaving her listeners amazed. Friends were received at the Aurora Memorial Building. A funeral service was conducted today, Feb. 16, at Stemple Ridge United Methodist Church, with Rev. Daniel Stemple officiating. Interment followed in Stemple Ridge Cemetery. Hinkle Funeral Home, Davis, W.Va., was in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.hinklefuneralhome.com.
