Gertrude Dorothy Kelly

July 2, 1923 ~ December 29, 2017 (age 94)


Gertrude "Trudy" Kelly, 94, of Panama City, passed away December 29, 2017.

She was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, John Kelly. Survived by 6 children...Dolores Parsons, Ron Kelly, Kathy Joiner (Ray),Patty Tunnell (Guy), Janet Followell, Joann Wallace; 17 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. Trudy was a homemaker in every sense of the word, and her love of family was her way of life. Mom always put us first and said time and time again “there’s nothing like family”. If she was gardening, cooking, sewing or even cleaning, she was happy. Her family gatherings were second to none where she made her famous spaghetti sauce. Mom made many memories for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mom was always thankful for the loving care and support that she received from many of her family and friends in her later years.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to Anchorage Children’s Home.
