Kathleen (Kay) Gertrude Shelley
Kathleen died of Alzheimer’s Disease in Harbour View Haven, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on Wednesday January 3, 2018. She was born to the late Starr Ernest & Olive May (Wentzel) Hutt on November 16, 1926 in Milton, Nova Scotia. She married Walter Bishop Shelley on July 14, 1947 and was a loving wife to him until his death on October 18, 1999.
She will forever be in the hearts of her daughters Carolyn, Starr, Christine & Robina; sons Gregory & David; daughter-in-law Donna & sons-in-law Robert Fear & Larry Trottier. Kathleen is survived by ten grandchildren Alexander, Kathleen, Matthew (Shannon), Angela, Gregory Jr., Justin, Sonya (Tyler), Nicholas, Bronson (Anne-Marie) & Bradley (Jenn), whom she loved dearly. She also leaves eleven great-grandchildren Devon, Sadie, Charlotte, Riley, Logan, Taylor, Carter, Nyah Kay, Kingston, Joaquin, Lyla & Brooks and one great-great grandson Damien.
She is also survived by three of her thirteen siblings: Virginia Fox, Herbert & Robert Hatt (Cheryl). She was predeceased by brothers George, Kenneth, Starr Jr., Richard, John, Charles, Winston & Douglas; sisters Norma & Hazel and great-granddaughter Olivia Grace.
Her greatest achievements have been in the lives of her family and friends. Kathleen’s generous heart filled her home with love, fun, family & friends – there was always room for one more. Aunt Kay has many nieces and nephews and has touched the lives of everyone she has encountered throughout her years.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool where a memorial service and reception will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday January 27, 2018. Burial will take place at Milton Community Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia.
Backward, turn backward, O time, in your flight;
Make me a child again, just for tonight!
Mother, come back from that echoless shore;
Take me again in your heart as of yore —
Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care,
Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair,
Over my slumbers your loving watch keep —
Rock me to sleep, mother — rock me to sleep!
– Elizabeth Acker Allan

Condolence from Lynn Kempton-Lowe on January 24th, 2018 1:27 pm

To the Shelley Family,
I was so sorry to read that your Mom has passed away. She was a special person to all who knew her. I used to enjoy her “yard sales” – you never knew what you might find, but it would always be a bargain and it was a place where neighbours gathered and friendships were formed. My deepest sympathy to all of you – I know that you feel sadness right now, but never forget all of the good memories that you have of your Mom – and treasure them always.
Love and Prayers,
Lynn Kempton-Lowe

Condolence from Helen Ivany Parjer on January 25th, 2018 7:51 pm

What an amazing tribute! I remember Aunt Kay with warm memories and how she was always so kind to me. What I remember most though was what a hard worker she was. It is never easy ro lose a parent. My deepest sympathy. Helen

Condolence from Dennis and Tina Shelley on January 29th, 2018 11:42 pm

Dear Carolyn, Starr, Chrissy, Robin, David and Greg: I just found out about Aunt Kay’s passing moments ago. Even in today’s world of computers some news travels slowly. As Helen has mentioned the tribute was excellent. I think it brought out her strong commitment to family. One got a good sense of the love of family. I certainly recall the time I paid a visit to Milton with my Mom and Dad and Tina. Aunt Kay just couldn’t do enough to make Tina feel welcomed and comfortable. Aunt Kay’s last year’s may have been a struggle but, as is obvious through the tribute, I think she knew she was well loved by her children. That’s what it’s all about. Love.
Tina and would like to express our most heartfelt sympathy at the loss of your Mother. Now she will worry about all of you from her place in Heaven.
