Nora Kelly

Our hearts break with the passing Nora Kelly. She was born and raised in Chicago where she met and married her husband Simon Kelly. Two weeks after they packed up and moved to Colorado where they soon after added three sons. They continued to venture through Colorado and moved their young family to Aspen in 1967. During their time in Aspen she raised the boys, ran a prosperous business and took part in Aspen as a growing community. She worked hard and had the clever wit that allowed them to make it in Aspen. She will be remembered for her deep love for her family, the joy she found in hosting others, watching hockey and the countless memories she has left us with. She is survived by husband Simon. Her three sons Mike, Ted, and Dan. Her sister Judy. Her grandchildren Caitlyn, Cassidy, Luke, and Oliver. And many loved nieces and nephews. We are planning on getting together in Aspen this summer to remember her.
