Christina "Ann" Kelly
Kelly, Christina Ann, age 73, of Antigonish, passed away on October 19, 2019 after a brief illness.
Born in Antigonish, she was the daughter of the late William and Mary Ellen (Duggan) Kelly.
Ann grew up in Glencoe, Guysborough County and moved to town at a young age. After high school, she got her first job at Neil’s Gift Shop, following that she began her banking career. She worked for several banking institutions throughout Ontario, P.E.I., Newfoundland and Nova Scotia retiring from Bergengren Credit Union, Antigonish several years ago. Throughout her career, Ann formed many great friendships.
Ann enjoyed her antiques and was an avid collector. She also loved gardening, travelling with her many close friends and listening to CBC radio. In the last number of year she was involved with St. Ninian’s CWL, making many a sandwich for funerals and forming friendships with the ladies she volunteered with. We will miss "Aunt Ann" at family celebrations and dinners. She was a part of them all.
