It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth Kelly. A long-time resident of Revelstoke, Ruth passed away unexpectedly at Queen Victoria Hospital on the morning of December 28, 2021. She was born in Switzerland to Hans and Frieda Hager on June 17, 1946.
Ruth will be remembered for her love of animals - tall and small, furred and feathered - she adored them all and was their biggest champion.
Ruth is survived by her husband of 52 years, Dave Kelly, and her son, Ryan Kelly both of Revelstoke, as well as her daughter Lori Kelly and granddaughter Morgan Graumann, both of Edmonton, AB. She also leaves behind her sister Nelly (Barry) Nicholson and her brother John (Maureen) Hager, nephews Keith and Brad, nieces Julie and Angie, as well as her great nephews, Kevin and Aaron and great nieces Jessica, Olivia, Sarah and Marin, with many family members and friends in Switzerland and Mexico. Ruth is predeceased by her parents Hans and Frieda Hager.
