Dorothy V. Kelly

Dorothy V. Kelly, 89, passed away peacefully on Tuesday July 16, 2019 after a brief but strong battle against cancer. She is predeceased by her Husband Jack Kelly to whom she was married for 63 years! She is survived by her two sons: Steve, and his wife Genny; and Donald; by her three grandchildren of whom she was extremely proud: Tom and his wife Kim, Megan and Jim; and by more than a dozen nieces and nephews. She loved them all!

Her life took her far beyond her beginnings on Sedgewick Avenue in the Bronx.  Dorothy started life splitting time in her early years between the Bronx and summers in Asbury Park, NJ. After careers with both Paramount Pictures, and Shell Oil Co, Dorothy married and began raising a family. Dorothy & Jack were fortunate enough to live in many places and leave behind wonderful friendships from their time in Ft Lee, NJ; New City, NY for 18 Years; Rio Pierdras, Puerto Rico; Bloomfield Hills MI, finally retiring for wonderful years in Hilton Head SC.

Dorothy will be remembered for her smile, her generosity, her devotion to family and friends, her love of dogs and of course her beloved NY Yankees!

A Christian Mass will be held at St Catherine’s Church Blauvelt, NY on Tuesday July 23 at 11AM. Visiting hours are Monday July 22 from 2-4PM and 7-9PM at Pizzi Funeral Home, 120 Paris Ave, Northvale, NJ (201-767-3050).
