    Anna, born on Jan. 29, 1913 in Newport, was the daughter of the late George and Rose Soukey Shahan. She was a graduate of Ilion Schools and Ryder College. On July 12, 1941 Anna was united in marriage with Lewis M. Kelly, a union which lasted until his passing in 1969.
    Mrs. Kelly’s professional career was as a payroll clerk for UNIVAC. She was a member of the Church of the Annunciation, the Business Women’s Club and the Mohawk Valley Hospital Guild.

She is also survived by ten great-grandchildren.
    Anna loved animals, working in her yard, reading and doing jigsaw puzzles. She traveled with her family to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, whom she treasured.
    In keeping with Anna’s wishes there are no calling hours and funeral services will be at the convenience of the family.
    Anna’s family would like to thank the staff at Quail Summit in Canandaigua, and Hospeace House in Naples for their kindness and compassion.
