KELLY, PATRICIA ANN August 25, 1941 ~ November 4, 2018 Patricia 'Ann' Kelly, age 77, passed away peacefully with family by her side on Sunday, November 4, 2018, at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo, CO, after a valiant battle with lung cancer. Ann, a resident of Pueblo, was born August 25, 1941, in Manning, S.C., to John R. Pierce and Maudie Mae Allen. She spent her childhood in North Carolina and her early adulthood in Minnesota. Colorado has been her home since 1974, residing at various times in Woodland Park, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo. Ann was proud of her accomplishments in the real estate field, first as a real estate agent then a mortgage loan originator. Her most satisfying role, though, was that of mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. A passionate animal lover, Ann opened her heart and home to innumerable dogs and cats throughout the years. She also loved singing and dancing, gardening and reading, and extra-crispy Kentucky Fried Chicken. Some of Ann's most cherished memories were of motorcycle road trips taken with second husband Gerald 'Jerry' Kelly, highlighted by stops at every 'Point of Interest' along the way, regardless of size or significance. Ann joins her beloved Jerry in heaven and others who preceded her in death: her parents; and stepbrothers, Leonard Wiggins, Raymond Wiggins, and Bobby Wiggins. Ann is survived and will be greatly missed by sisters, Darlene (Mac) Varnum and Janie Guthrie; children, Jeff Aukema, Rebecca (Rick) Youngs, Lisa (Jim) Carpenter, Jennifer Reno, David Aukema, Susan McGrane; 21 grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren. Memorial service, 2 p.m. Sunday, November 11, 2018, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Online condolences,

Memories Timeline


  1. Ann accepted me into her family over 30 years ago. Best memory when we stayed with her Jerry en route to Korea. Holidays will not be the same not being able to guess what type of roaster I’m getting and no more jelly beans. Rest in peace.
