After a full life of 87 years, Dorothy Regan Kelly, joined with the great multitude of neighbors, friends and relatives who had gone before her.
“Dotty Dreamer,” as she was called by her husband, Dr. John Kelly of the University of Delaware, leaves behind a loving son, Kenneth, her baby brother, Jack, four grandchildren (Laura, John, Ryan and Caroline) and nine great grandchildren (Quinn, Raegan, Owen, Adeline, Joshua, Brody, Vivienne, Garhett and Savannah). All of us will never forget the love that she showered on us and how we benefited from her loyalty, courage, patience and generosity. The shortest summary of her qualities was Laura’s statement “Grammy was sweet.” That she was, sweet and nice.
