Dorothy Lea Kelly

September 16, 1928 ~ December 30, 2013

Dorothy Lea Kelly passed away suddenly at her beloved winter retreat in Barra de Navidad, Mexico on December 30, 2013. Dorothy Lea was born in Wenatchee on September 16, 1928, to Charles and Joy Garland. She attended school in Wenatchee and graduated from Wenatchee High School in 1946. On June 12, 1947, she married Robert A. Kelly and they made their home on Lake Chelan, where they built Kelly’s Resort and raised their four children. Bob and Dorothy spent decades operating Kelly’s Resort and meeting people from all over the world, many who became lifetime friends. She remained involved with the operation of the resort until her death. After Bob’s death in 1983, Dorothy had many adventures, traveling with family and friends (usually as the favorite chauffeur for her friends). She also participated in the Wenatchee World hike in the Cascades, enrolled in college - living on Capitol Hill, played Bridge with friends, attended the Seattle Arts & Lectures for several years, was a voracious reader, and spent winters in Mexico for over ten years. Dorothy Lea embraced life with her wonderful, optimistic attitude and she truly loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, as well as her many friends.

Dorothy Lea is survived by her children: Kathryn (Ray) Dobbs, Jeff Kelly, and Bridget (Jerry) Jaynes, all of Chelan, and Jennifer (Ron) Paynter of Lake Stevens, WA; along with her grandchildren, Rachel, Courtney, Stefani, Zachary, Lucas, Caitlin, Kelly, Darcy, Paxton, Erin, and Collin; and nine great-grandchildren. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; her sister, Barbara Spurgeon; and her parents.

There will be No Services at Dorothy’s request.
