In Loving Memory of John “Jack” Kelly November 4, 1922 - February 9, 2024 It is with both sadness and gratitude that we announce the peaceful passing of Jack Kelly, who lived a remarkable and fulfilling life for over a century. Born in Philadelphia, PA, Jack was the son of John and Margaret Kelly (nee Brennan). He graduated from West Catholic High School before enlisting in the Army, where he served in the Pacific theater during World War II. After the war, he returned home to Philadelphia and attended La Salle University. Jack began his career at the Veterans Administration where he met the love of his life, Rita Dennehy, to whom he was married for 70 years. He continued working for the federal government as an accountant until he retired. Jack resided in Havertown, PA for over 30 years where he was an active member of St. Dorothy’s Parish. He and Rita loved traveling, especially to visit family in Florida. In later years, Jack and Rita moved to Granite Farms Estates in Media, PA, where he enjoyed gardening, working in the woodshop, and volunteering on many committees. Jack prioritized family above all else. He was preceded in death by his wife, Rita, and siblings Margaret Igoe, Charles Kelly and James Kelly. He is survived by his daughter Liz and three grandchildren, Jack (Lauren), Meghan and Bill, all of whom brought him great pride. He has one great-granddaughter, Brooke, who truly brought a light to his eyes, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Jack thoroughly enjoyed good conversation and was an enthusiastic storyteller. He witnessed the world undergo incredible transformations over the course of his 100 years. Yet, he retained a zest for life and a sharp wit that endeared him to all generations. His legacy is one of love, wisdom, and unwavering strength. He left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing him. A Mass and celebration of Jack's life will be announced at a later date.

Born in West Philadelphia, Pat was the eldest child of Thomas and Mary Corcoran (nee Murphy) who emigrated to America from Ireland. Growing up in West Philadelphia and graduating from West Catholic High School for girls, Pat made countless friends with whom she remained close through the years. Pat was devoted to her sweet husband Ron, the love of her life. Their love story began in Ocean City NJ and blossomed in West Philadelphia where they married on Halloween 1959. They moved to Drexel Hill in 1963 where they raised their family and lived together for over 60 years. Pat went back to college when her youngest child was in first grade. She loved the challenge of the academic world. While balancing the family activities and a husband that traveled for work, Pat excelled and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in May of 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Civilization. Following graduation, Pat spent time working with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Pat and Ron loved to travel and enjoyed visiting Australia, England, Ireland, France, Germany, Switzerland, China, Japan, Mexico, Tahiti, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Their favorite destination was Key West, where they visited often over the years. They also enjoyed many beach trips with family to various Jersey shore locations. Pat was known for her sharp wit and great sense of humor. She enjoyed spirited conversations with family, friends and acquaintances she met during her travels. She was an ardent reader, a passion that she passed onto her children. She also enjoyed spending time working in the family gardens. Pat will be deeply missed by her family and those that loved her.
