Obituary

     Mrs. Faye D. Kelly, age 80, of Brandenburg, KY, passed away on Friday, April 8, 2022, at Kindred hospital in Louisville, KY.  Faye was born January 28, 1942, the daughter of Willie Burt and Kathleen (Wages) Duke.  She had many interests in her life.  Faye was a nurse; sold real estate; was an original founder of the Women’s Powderpuff Sanctioned Racing Association in 1959; and a huge fan of Elvis Presley.  She was the ultimate sports mom, following all of her children in football, baseball and cheerleading.  She was a very active member of Pleasure Ridge Youth Sports, even serving as a reporter and writer for the publication, Panther Youth Sports.  Most importantly, Faye was just Mom and Mamaw Faye, not only to her own children and grandchildren, but also to all of the neighborhood children.

      Faye was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Randall B. Kelly; her sister, Mary Charlotte Bishoff; and her former husband, Joseph “Papa Joe” Kelly.  She is survived by four children, Richard L. Kelly, and his children, Kayla, Karlee and Alasia, Joseph R. Kelly, and his children, Tony and Shawn, Randall’s children, Brittany, Richard, Randall and Michael, Ronda F. (John) Staub, and her children, Gary and Amber, and Rodney M. (Jennifer S.) Kelly, and his children, Clayton, Colton and Kathleen; and 18 great grandchildren; her special niece, Deborah Holland; and several other nieces, nephews and cousins.

      Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 AM on Thursday, April 14, 2022, at the chapel of the Hager Funeral Home, with Rev. Tim Harris officiating.  Burial will follow in Salem Cemetery.  Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 1:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Wednesday; and from 9:00 AM until the time of service on Thursday.
