Elsie “Virginia” Kelly, 85, entered into rest on Monday, March 22, in Manteca. She was born August 8, 1924 in Rudy, Arkansas. She joins her husband in heaven James “Sy” Kelly and her beloved great-great-grandson Bryce Johnson.

Mrs. Kelly is survived by her daughter Beverly Green and her husband Charles of Manteca. She was blessed by two grandchildren Michael Green of Manteca and Kimberly Johnson of Oregon, three great-grandchildren Rebecca Johnson of Oregon, Ryan Johnson of Oregon, and Kyle Johnson of Oregon as well as one great-great-grandchild Ryder Johnson of Oregon.

Virginia worked in the cafeteria at Manteca High School and East Union High School for 40 years. She loved being around the kids enjoying their teenage spirit when ordering from the snack bar. Virginia loved keeping her house immaculate. She found peace when working in her yard keeping it as neat as can be planting her seasonal crops and flowers. In her younger years Virginia enjoyed traveling with her late husband around the United States and Canada. She loved to put a smile on your face as she was a very conservative traditional woman. Virginia had a very special place in her heart for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; she loved them unconditionally.

Mrs. Kelly’s services are being handled by P.L. Fry & Son Funeral Home of Manteca. She will be laid to rest with her husband at a graveside service on March 29 at 2 p.m. An on-line guest book is available for condolences to the family at
