[evoz] Deirdre Kelly Obituary - Service 2pm Monday, Feb. 5th

We are so sad to have lost our beautiful and creative wife, mother, and friend, Deirdre Kelly to the cruel ravages of cancer. She is survived by her husband John, daughter Emma, son Matthew, sister Maureen, brothers Paul and Mike, step-mother Allene, and a large community of well loved friends.

After her childhood in North... Vancouver, Deirdre moved to the Island where she became a tireless advocate for human rights. She co-founded the Victoria Central America Support Committee in 1980, and worked as the Coordinator of the Office of Social Justice for the Catholic Diocese for 20 years. For the past 10 years she turned her focus to art and amassed an impressive body of paintings and other work. With so much still left to do Deirdre was forced to leave her earthly life too soon.

We know that she would be happy to pass the torch of her kindness to others and passion for life to her family and friends, but right now our lives without her will be less joyful. Please join us in remembrance of Deirdre at Holy Cross Parish, 4049 Gordon Head Rd., at 2pm on Monday, Feb. 5th. Messages of condolence can be sent to www.earthsoption.com.
