Edna M. Kelly, 73

Edna M. Kelly, 73 of State Route 31, Hebron, passed away on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2009 at her residence surrounded by her loving family following a courageous battle with cancer.

 

She was born on Dec. 6, 1935 in Wells, Vt.  She was the daughter of Roy and Jessie (Baker) Martindale.

Mrs. Kelly’s family was her life.  She devoted 52 years to them, working very hard to make everything the best she could for them.  Besides her family she had many interests in her life.  She loved flowers, going to many fairs and carnivals, watching professional wrestling on television, collecting “Toby” mugs, going out to dinner, watching humming birds outside of her window, cuckoo clocks, and tag sales.  But the most important times for her were the holidays, especially Christmas, when all of her family would be close to her.

She touched everyone’s heart that she came in contact with, even the nurses on Tower 3 at Glens Falls Hospital.  We owe our deepest appreciation for the special care that they gave her and the support and compassion that they gave to our family.

She is predeceased by her parents, her brothers; Charles, William, Frank, her sister, Eunice, and a granddaughter, Brianna Benjamin.

Survivors include the love of her life, David E. Tompkins, with whom she was with for the past 37 years, her children, Penny A. Gates and her husband, Stewart of Queensbury, Lenny L. Eaton, Sr. and his wife Alice of Salem, Tina M. Benjamin and her significant other, Leo Yeager of Glens Falls, Roy L. Kelly and his wife Roxanne of North Hebron, and Rupert D. Tompkins and his significant other, Lauren Faele of Granville; her grandchildren, Jessica Gates, Lenny Eaton, Jr., Kate Eaton, Benjamin Wade, Camphnie  Wade, Brock Benjamin, Karly Benjamin, Roy Kelly, Jr., Shelby Kelly, Justin and Jarod Gates, Corey, Briana and Kristal Faele, Amanda Baker and Raymond Martindale; and seven great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Services were conducted at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 6 at the Robert M. King Funeral, 23 Church Street, Granville, with Rev. Jerry McKinney,  pastor of the United Methodist Church of Granville officiating.  Burial will follow in the North Hebron Cemetery, North Hebron.

Friends were invited to call on the family from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 5 at the funeral home.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made in her memory to Hospice of Washington County, Upper Broadway, Fort Edward, N.Y. 12828
