Extending sympathies to her family at the time of her passing, The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, said: “Aurelia was much loved by her family and by the parish families in Connor diocese where she lived and served. She was a lady who made a wonderful contribution to the lives of those around her.”
Mrs Kelly had gathered donations for the Foodbank from neighbours and passers-by from her garden in the past and, in her memory, her husband Rev Trevor Kelly, curate of the Church of Ireland parish of Drummaul, Duneane & Ballyscullion, and their two children have decided to open their garden for donations in December.
In a post on social media, they stated: ‘As a family we want to ensure that the ministry of Aurelia Kelly continues to serve. Therefore in her memory we have opened our garden in 1 Galgorm Lodge to receive donations for food bank until 14th December. We would appreciate your support in helping us provide for this very worthwhile charity. Trevor, Andrew, Laura and Rebecca’.
