HILLSBORO, NH: Nancy H. Kelley, age 86, of Hillsboro, NH, passed away unexpectedly in her home on September 6, 2023.
Nancy was born on May 31, 1937 in Eden, Vermont to Ruth and Barnard Jones. Nancy is survived by her sons, Bruce Baker of Texas, Stephen Kelley and Jesse Kelley and his wife, Bridget Kelley of Hillsboro, NH, seven grandsons, Stephen, Carl and Bryson Houghton, Jonathan, Christopher, Ryan and Curtis Kelley, two granddaughters, Serenedy and Alyssa Kelley, three great-grandchildren, Owyn Turner, Carleah Houghton and Dawson Kelley, a brother, Michael Jones and a sister, Patricia Dahlstrom. She was predeceased by her brother, Floyd Jones and her sisters, Virginia Callahan, Barbara Murdough and Marjorie Robichaud.
Nancy enjoyed watching birds from her living room or outside while enjoying the sun, especially if she was able to pick out a cardinal (her favorite) off in the distance. If she wasn’t watching the birds, you could find her enjoying time with her kids and grandchildren, with her lady friends during their lunch dates, with her very close friend Andrea or planting flowers in her yard. She was an avid Red Sox fan and never missed a game. She was always willing to give to others before ever taking for herself. She was forever giving praise to her grandchildren and wished the world for all of them. She retired from Osram Sylvania after 35 years of dedicated service.
She will be greatly missed by anyone who had the opportunity and privilege to know her, as she touched more hearts than anyone could ever know.
Services will be held at Holt-Woodbury Funeral Home in Hillsboro NH, located at 32 School St, on September 19th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm followed by a Celebration of Life to be determined at a later date.
