Obituary for Ruby Bell Kelly

Ruby Bell Kelly, 74 of Brazil, passed away suddenly in Ft. Pierce, Florida at the Lawnwood Regional Medical Center. She was born February 8, 1944 in Owen County, IN. the daughter of Carl and Isabell Orman Dubois. She graduated from Patricksburg High School. She and her sister Sharon were past members of the Patricksburg Lutheran Church.
Ruby has always been one to take care of everyone. She has stayed with people in their homes, driven folks to appointments and to Florida, and of course she has taken care of her family. Meals at her table were always a must, including dessert. She cherished her time with family and they have all worked hard at making the family business successful. Kelly’s Live Bait and Tackle has been a central part of her life for the past 30 plus years. Her previous husband, Ken Kelly wanted her to care for the business after his death, and she certainly has followed through with that. For the past five years, Ruby has run the concessions for the Billy Williams Auction Service. She enjoyed being with people.
She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant brother.
Survivors include her son, Doug Sheese and wife Diana of Brazil; grandchildren, D.J. and wife Lisa Sheese, Amanda Sheese (Brandon Jackson), and Chad Sheese (Erika Maxwell); great-grandchildren, Ty Jackson, Morgan, Makenzie and Mason Sheese; two sisters, Sharon Paxton (Glenn Fox) of Mooresville, and Sheila ‘Sis’ Thompson (Glenn) of Cloverdale; several nieces, nephews and extended family. Also surviving is her companion Jack Hay, and the many friends and clients she has known over the years.
Services will be held Thursday at 1:00pm at French Funeral Home with Pastor Billy Williams officiating. Burial will follow. Visitation will be Wednesday from 5-7pm and again Thursday one hour prior to services. Post a note of condolence at www.frenchfuneralhome.com
