Kelly was a Civil Engineer for over 30 years, specializing in roads and bridges for the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, she adored her career and work family, almost as much as they adored her. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Kelly knew that she loved the ocean, she especially cherished visits to Old Orchard Beach, ME and Greenwich Beach, PEI. She loved to go to Tim Hortons almost every night to sit and enjoy her coffee and “alone time.” She enjoyed sitting on the patio at Cannon’s Cross Pub every Saturday afternoon in the summertime. Kelly had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh with all of her friends. She was a lover of sports and was a very good softball player, she also enjoyed volley ball and golfing.
