She was “The Lady at the Smith Hometown Store, who knows where everything is...”
She was a member of the Eldred United Methodist Church. She enjoyed gardening, crafting, participating in the local Zumba classes, harassing all the customers at the hardware store and shopping.

She is survived by her daughter, Yasmine (Titus) Griffith of Allegany, N.Y.; a stepson, Terry Kvalkauskas Jr. of Williamsport; three sisters, Debbie Bird of Eldred, Barbara (Rickey) Briel of Biloxi, Miss. and Sarah (Phil) Hall of East Aurora, N.Y.; special nieces and nephews, Karen Frank, Katie Dynda, Andy, Greg and Jason Bird, Ricky Lord, all of whom she was very close to; many special grandnieces and grandnephews; and her special partner, Stephen Troupe of Eldred.

A celebration of Kelly’s life was held on Saturday (June 17, 2017). Burial will be in Mountain Cemetery in Brockway. Arrangements are under the direction of Frame Funeral Home. Memorials can be made to the Eldred Area Free Library and Historical Society or the Eldred Ambulance Service.

How true on that. If Kelly couldn't make it work, nobody could. Be it plumbing, hardware, stove pipe. She was a great asset to the store and will be sorely missed in the community. Condolences to Deb and family.
