Margaret Mary Kelly was born on August 9, 1941, in Castlebar, County Mayo, Ireland.

Margaret joined the family in Chicago, where she met and married her beloved John, who adored her. She was the loving mother of John (Michelle), and Lance (Shawndra); doting grandmother of Ryan, Katie and Cain.  Margaret practiced her deep faith as an active member of St. Robert Bellarmine Church community for 55 years as a Eucharistic minister and volunteer at the Women's Center. She cherished time spent with her close relatives, Fr. Jack Joyce, OMI, Pete and Bobbi, Gerry and Ila, and Joe and Irma. Margaret relished family gatherings and was close to her nieces and nephews.
