KELLY, Reta Ann (nee Burns) - (October 16, 1930 – October 11, 2017) - Peacefully in Algonquin Highlands overlooking the lake she has called home for the past 10 years, surrounded by her surviving children and loving partner Norma Goodger.
Reta was predeceased by her husband John Edward Kelly (1989) and daughter Karen Marie Douma (2009), and is survived by her son Michael Kelly (Sandra) and daughters Christine Mote (Allan) and Patricia Shaw (Mike).
