SHELDON—Kelly Sue Delaney, 61, of St. Paul, MN, died Tuesday, June 25, 2019.
A celebration of life was held Saturday, June 29, in St. Paul, MN, where she resided. A graveside service was held Monday, July 1, at the East Lawn Cemetery in Sheldon.
Kelly Sue was born Dec. 2, 1957, in Sheldon, to Mary and Gerald Delaney. In 1973, Lyndon Greimann adopted Kelly and her two siblings. She graduated high school from Sheldon High in 1976. She moved all over the country living in Minnesota, Tennessee and Florida over the years. Along the way, she made many great friends whose relationships she cherished dearly. Kelly never met a stranger that she could not call a friend.
Kelly loved to visit friends and family at Lake Okoboji during the summer months and spend time with her family in Arizona during the holidays and special occasions. Her mother and her often spent many afternoons reminiscing about their road trips to Florida. Kelly was a movie buff and loved watching old-time favorites on repeat. She could simply never get enough of “Friends,” no matter how many times she re-watched the series. You could always find Kelly in green rooting for the Packers on Sundays or celebrating her Irish heritage at her favorite local spot. Cheering loud and proud, no one could ever convince Kelly of a greater legend than Brett Favre. She was known for her outgoing, chatty personality and infectious smile. Kelly will be greatly missed by all of us who knew her.
She is survived by her mother Mary; father Lynn; and older brother Kim, of the Phoenix, AZ area.
Kelly was preceded in death by her biological father Gerald; and sister Nancy.
