Dora Kelly Obituary

Dora R. Kelly, age 81, of Corning, passed away on November 23, 2023, due to complications from a fall.

She was born October 3, 1942, to Clifford (June) Divens and Ruth Bruce Divens.

Dora worked several jobs before getting hire at Corning Incorporate in June 1973.  After retiring from there, she was the "Bakery Lady" at Corning Wegmans for almost 15 years.

The two most important things in her life were her sports and her family.  She loved playing cards, scratch off tickets and her Yankees, NASCAR (Rusty Wallace) and Basketball (Duke and the Chicago Bulls).  One of her favorite processions was a certificate for fan of the year from Bradford School.  Watching her children and grandchildren play was a passion.

She married Marvin Kelly Sr. on September 3, 1966.  She was predeceased by him, her daughter-in-law, Theresa Kelly, grandson Brett Kelly and her brother Don Divens.

She is survived by her Children Cliff (Nancy) Paris, Donna (Brian) Nelson, Marvin Kelly Jr. and Debbie (Tom) Szkapi; Brothers Jim (Barbara) Divens, Dan (Carol) Divens; Sisters Shirley (Howard) McFall and Barb (Larry) Waxman; Grandchildren Marvin, Richard, Mitchell, Marvin III, Jessica and Diana; 11 Great Grandchildren; she adored her Nieces and Nephews.
