Beverly Kelly

62, died October 5, 2020.

Beverly was born and raised in Somerville and resided in Raritan for the last ten years. She was a warm, compassionate, and loving person. Beverly epitomized what it meant to be an educator. She was a teacher’s aid at The Midland school for the past 36 years. Her dedication, patience, and love for her students were apparent to all she encountered. Beverly was also a girl scout leader at the school, as well as a dear friend and co-worker to everyone at the school.

Beverly was a parishioner of St. Joseph RC Church in Raritan. Her devotion to her family and friends was her number one priority, especially to her grandchildren. Beverly had a special relationship with her grandchildren, and they absolutely adored her. When Beverly was not with her family and friends, she liked to garden, read and cook. Although Beverly will be greatly missed, she taught us to be accepting, love unconditionally, and be kind to everyone.

She is predeceased by her mother, Cecelia Bove, who passed away in 2019.

Surviving are her husband of 44 years, Tim Kelly, sons Shawn Kelly and wife Julie and Todd Kelly and wife Katie, father Victor Bove Sr., brother Victor Bove Jr. and his wife Karen, sister Karen Bove, and four grandchildren Dylan, Madison, Maggie, and Marcus and nieces and nephews.
