June 29, 1938 – June 13, 2020
Maureen “Moie” Jane Kelly born on June 29, 1938, passed away peacefully. Moie grew up in Hartford, CT attending St. Augustine Elementary school then graduated from Buckeley High School. She later worked at Kinsella Elementary School as the school secretary for much of her life allowing her summers off to spend at Point O’ Woods Beach in South Lyme. Moie realized soon enough that the shoreline life was for her, and moved to Point O’ Woods full time in 1974 to be closer to her family and friends. Moie was an icon at POW whom everyone loved to visit. The door was always open for treats and popsicles, along with ice tea in the frig. The porch was a a place for long chats, card games, and time to catch up on beach gossip. Moie’s true passion was watching the kids grow up; her nieces, the Hurleys, the beach kids and especially her great nephew Ben . All the activity made her feel young a heart. She enjoyed her daily trips to the post office and Big Y, a delicious lobster roll and good vanilla milkshake.To Moie, friends, family and Point O’ Woods made her happy. Moie is survived by her brother John “Jack” Kelly, his wife Linda Wind Kelly, her nieces Beth Kelly, her great nephew Benjamin Kelly, Susie Kelly Taylor, George Taylor, Missie Kelly and Loren Bush, many cousins and her forever loving Lab Hunter. A private service will be held at Point O’ Woods Cemetery on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 4:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please send donations on behalf of Maureen Kelly to the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library in Old Lyme, CT.

My favorite memory of Moie is when she would stock up on Dilly Bars from Dairy Queen in the fall. We would wonder how long she could make them last.
