Margaret T. “Peggy” Kelly

Margaret T.  “Peggy” (Lydon) Kelly,  age 87 of Milton, passed away peacefully on her 64th wedding anniversary on April 25, 2017. 

The beloved wife of the late Francis M. Kelly of Brookline. Loving mother of Francis Kelly of Tequesta, FL., William Kelly and his wife Patricia of Abington, Michael Kelly and his wife Teresa of Milton and James Kelly and his wife Teresa of Quincy.

Great Grandmother of Nicholas and Gabriella Maly. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Peggy grew up in South Boston. Her childhood was rich with family traditions which would later become the foundation of all that was truly important to her. She married Francis Kelly and they raised their family in Quincy. Peggy had a strong work ethic and worked for many years for local 26. Both she and her late husband Francis always enjoyed spending winters at their second home in Hobe Sound, Florida. She enjoyed the simple things in life, going out to dinner, spending time with her grandchildren, but nothing was more important to her than family gatherings.  She cherished these times spent with her family. Peggy will be dearly missed by all those who were blessed to have known her.
