Obituary

KELLY, Iona Agnes (nee Swan)
December 1, 1937 - July 31, 2019

Passed away peacefully at Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, surrounded by her family, after bravely battling cancer. Only child of Robert Swan and Agnes (nee More) Swan.

Born and raised in Montreal, Iona graduated from Macdonald College, and was honoured to teach primary school on the West Island of Montreal before moving with Jack and their children, to Ontario in 1977. Remembered by her family and friends as a kind and gentle lady who was always a warm and welcoming hostess as well as a superb cook and baker. Iona will be deeply missed by Jack and her children.
