On December 9, 2005, Associate Vione (Vi) Kelly passed away in the Catherine Kasper Life Center. Among her survivors are three sisters: Mrs. Catherine Flood; and two Poor Handmaid Sisters, Sisters Margaret Hanon and Mary Boby. Vi and her husband, now deceased, had six children. They raised their family in Griffith, Indiana, and then Vi moved to Maria Center after her husband died. Along with raising her family, Vi taught high school Latin and English for 39 years. Vione became an Associate in 1984. Among her many contributions as an Associate, she served for two years on the Associate/Sister Advisory Board in 1989 and 1990. Vione was 90 years old.
May she rest in peace.
