John S. Kelly, Sr. 1935–2009

December 30, 2009

With sadness I write to share the news that John S. Kelly, who was Mary Baldwin’s director of security and safety for 20 years, passed away on December 28. Always quick with a smile, he worked hard to create a safe, inviting environment where students, faculty, and staff could learn, teach, and enjoy a vibrant campus life. He made lasting friendships with colleagues and students alike, and he will be much missed.

At the request of Mr. Kelly’s family, the funeral service will be private.

A very nice obituary is available online at Coffman Funeral Home

We encourage Mr. Kelly’s many friends in the Mary Baldwin community to share remembrances on our facebook page.

With best wishes,
Crista R. Cabe
Vice President, Public Relations
