"Mom, Grandma

& Sister"

On April 14, 2004, Constance Mary Kelly passed away while working in her rose garden, which she loved dearly.

Constance was born February 3, 1937 in Manchester, New Hampshire to Lowell and Mary Cooper. After raising her children, she graduated from Westminster College. Constance worked and retired from the Accounting Department at the University of Utah. She was known as the "flower lady" by all she worked with. Every morning she would come to work with a fresh bouquet of roses from her garden. Her garden was magnificent! She remained active in the community, donating her time to the Assistance League of Salt Lake. Constance also loved to travel. Her adventures included Russia, Poland, Spain, Italy, Korea, Hawaii and almost every US state from coast to coast.

Constance is survived by children Nancy (Bruce) Lovato, Stephen Kelly, Bridget (Marc) Childs, Eileen (Herman) Kiamanesh, Sean (Laurie) Kelly; her nine grandchildren Laurie (Josh), Kristine, Carla, Charleen, Aaron, Colette, Patrick, Peter, Maria, great-granddaughter Kasidy; and her brother George (Diana) Cooper and nephews Brandon and Derek.

Constance was loved by her family and friends. We will miss her jubilant laugh and outgoing attitude. She supported her family with all her might and would get involved in her children and grandchildren whenever she got the chance.

Friends and family are welcome to attend the viewing on Monday, April 19, 2004 from 6-8 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 Highland Dr., Salt Lake City, UT. Funeral services will be Tuesday, April 20, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. at the same location.
