Obituary for Donald "Don" Kelly

Donald "Don" Kelly
After a long and courageous battle with COPD, Donald (Don) Carl Kelly passed away peacfully at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre on Friday, January 26, 2018 at the age of 79. Predeceased by his parents, Carl Kelly (deceased 1995) and Gertrude Kelly (Smitheram- deceased 1991). Sisters Joan (Alger-deceased-2002, husband Ken-deceased-1989) and Patricia Kelly (deceased-2001). Don's sisters Shirley (Forman -Alex- deceased 1990) Nancy (Bryant) and husband Jim will miss him dearly. Don was the beloved & devoted husband of Ellen Irene Kelly (nee Jordan) for just shy of 63 years. Don will be deeply missed by his children, Linda (Keith Coad -deceased 2011) Michael wife Irene, Donna (West) husband Terry, Debbie (Perrault) husband Abe, Penny (deceased -1963) Tim wife Donna, Bonny (Al Miller-deceased 2009) husband Ron Cooper and Tracey (Villareal) husband John. Don will be forever cherished by his grandchildren, Terry, Angie-husband Jay, Zak, Amanda, Adam, Ryan wife Colleen, Rebecca (Cenzura) husband Jacob, Tina (Craig) husband Keith, Jason wife Stacey and Colton. He was also blessed with 13 great grandchildren, 3 great- great grandchildren and 13 nieces & nephews who will miss him dearly. Don & Ellen met when they were just 10 years old and it was love at first site. They were married in 1955 and settled in Cambray raising their family on a mechanic's salary. No matter how hard it was they somehow made things work as Don's greatest gifts were Ellen and their children. They had the opportunity to move out west to Aridrie, Alberta and then to Gordondale, Alberta. Once settled in Gordondale, they found life long friends Donna Jones (Tom - deceased 2016). Tom & Donna's family and in particular their girls Amanda & Bobbi quickly became a part of our family and will forever cherish their memories with both Don and Ellen. In 2004 they decided to return to Lindsay to be closer to the many family members living nearby. It was early in 2017 when Don's health started to decline and by December 22, 2017 when Ellen was placed in a long term care home with Lewy Body Dementia, Don had forever lost his best friend and partner in life. On January 8, 2018 he was taken by ambluance and quickly transferred to the ICU at Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) with many aliments including congestive heart failure and kidney failure. As Don's caregiver, Bonny while working at PRHC was able to spend many hours holding his hand throughtout his ordeal. In his final hours Micheal, Bonny & Ron were at his bedside while he peacefully drifted off to be reunited with those that passed on before him. A very special thank you to the nurses & physicians at PRHC, in particular Janice, Stephanie, Patty, Miles (aka Assassin) Dr. Brown and Dr. Rice. Each and everyone of the staff at PRHC demonstrated compassion and empathy while providing Don with best care anyone could ask for. Don's family will be forever grateful. In accordance with Don's wishes cremation has taken place. Family and friends are asked to gather at Stoddart Funeral Home & Cremation Centre, 24 Mill St., Lindsay, Ontario K9V 2L1 (705-324-3205) on Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. until time of funeral service in the chapel at 12:00 noon with a reception to follow. Interment later at Eden Cemetery with date to be announced. In leiu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Don's name to the ICU through the PRHC Foundation.
