Joyce Marie (nee McGrath) Kelly

August 23, 1949 ~ August 9, 2019 (age 69)


Joyce Marie Kelly (nee McGrath) was welcomed in the arms of our heavenly father on August 9, 2019. Joyce was born in Bryn Mawr, PA on August 23, 1949.

She attended Prendergast High School where she graduated in 1967. During that time she met the love of her life, her husband of 49 years, Mike Kelly. Joyce loved her family more than life itself. She was a caregiver to everyone and always made sure she had what you needed. She was passionate about helping others, especially those in need. Joyce was able to get her beach house, where she has been enjoying her summers soaking up the Vitamin D. She is already so deeply missed and we thank you all for your support and prayers.

Joyce is survived by her three children Tracey Johnson (Steve), Michael Kelly (Kristin) and Joanne Carnevale (Jay); her grandchildren Steven (Sam), Michael, Michael III, Christopher, Elle-Marie, Joey, Ava, Lillian, and Matthew; her great-grandchildren Kayden and Mackenzie; her siblings Carol Brumfield, Mickey McGrath, and David McGrath. She is predeceased by her parents Alfred and Lillian McGrath (nee Capoferri).

Relatives and friends are invited to her viewing Wednesday, August 14, 2019 6:00-9:00 PM at The Donohue Funeral Home, 1627 West Chester Pike, West Chester, PA 19382. Interment private.
