Obituary of Rebecca J Kelly

Rebecca J. Kelly, 75, Marion, went to be with the Lord at 7:51 am on Thursday, October 17, 2019. She was born in Marion on January 13, 1944, to Earl Griffin and Minnie (Zedaker) Mansbarger. She married Michael "Mike" Kelly, and he survives.

Rebecca was a homemaker throughout her life and attended Grace Community Church. She enjoyed listening to music, crocheting, and taking pictures, especially in the Fall with the leaves changing. She loved the outdoors! Her family was her first priority--spending time with them, cooking for them, and making candy (when she was able) during the holidays. Family get-togethers were the most precious times for her. She will be dearly missed by them and all who knew her.

Mansbarger of Auburn; brother, Charles (Kathy) Griffin of Marion; sisters, Barbara Stotts and Violet (Daryl) Barkdull, both of Marion; 6 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren, and beloved dog, Buster Brown.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Georganna Griffin.
