On November 7, 2018 Laurine Kelly peacefully passed away at the age of 71 with her family and friends lovingly by her side.  To all who knew her, Laurine was a good friend and always excited to spend quality time together hosting a dinner gathering.  Residing in the Sault for over 40 years, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in individualized Studies from Lake Superior State University.  She continued her career fulfilling many different roles at the University until retirement.  While her list of duties and successes are vast, her greatest accomplishment was as dedicated mother to Kimberly and Shawn.  For those who knew Laurine, they knew her peace.  She enjoyed connecting with nature and spending time outdoors breathing in the fresh air through various activities like snow shoeing, walking, birdwatching and cross-country skiing.  She dedicated time to her church, prayer groups, and choir.  She kept a healthy life balance with her yoga practice, dancing and cooking.  Many hours were given through her charitable work at the Hospice House, which also became her final resting place.  She was a lover of animals and spent her days with her best pals Ruba and Ubu.  She was a joy to her friends and a blessing to her family and proved that life should be lived fully.
Laurine is survived by son Shawn (Karen Dinter) Kelly, daughter Kimberly (Rich) Dale, sister Janet (Donald) Winarski and three grandchildren Clarissa Kelly, Shawn Kelly and Alexa Dale and one great grandchild Zoey Kelly.  She is also survived by many cousins, aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews and countless friends.  She is predeceased by her parents Sophie and Joseph Rosiek.  Visitation will be held 3:00pm until 5:30pm on Sunday November 11, 2018 at Clark Bailey Newhouse Funeral Home, with a rosary service to be held at 5:30pm.  Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11:00am Monday November 12, 2018 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church with Father Michael Chenier as Celebrant and Deacon Bill Piche assisting.  Final resting place will be in Oaklawn Chapel Gardens.  Memorials in her memory may be made to EUP Hospice.  Online Condolences may be left at www.clarkbaileynewhouse.com.

Dear Shawn, Kim and Families

Your MOM had a heart of gold and we will miss her dearly, especially playing pinochle until the wee hours of the morning.

Our deepest sympathy to all of you!!!

We were so sorry to hear about your Mom. As you well know, she was a special lady who loved her family deeply and brought joy to those around her. Wish we could be there but since we are now in Pennsylvania it isn’t possible. We know she is resting in peace and joy. Love to you and your family.

We will miss Laurine and Love you all. It's hard to believe she's gone. There is an empty place in my heart that may be helped by keeping in touch with those who love her, and that's you.
