Kelly Ann Wade
Jan. 21, 1971 – March 28, 2015

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved Kelly on March 28, 2015. She was 44.
She was the loving mother of Cora and Jazlyn Wallace. She was the daughter of Lyle and Jean Wade, and the cherished sister of Brenda (Doug Woods), Bonnie (Jesus Garcia), Judy (Doug Hicks), Steven (Maureen Wade), and Brian (Kim Wade). She was “Aunt K” to Jennifer, Kary, Stephanie, Matthew, Courtney, Tyler, Lisa, Daryn, Brandon, Kaitlyn, Sara, and Zachary; and great “Aunt K” to several nieces and nephews. Kelly will be deeply missed by extended family, friends, and her Department of Justice colleagues.
Kelly will forever inspire those who knew and loved her, and those who knew of her. Her strength, determination, free spirit, and sense of humour carried her through life. Kelly was courageous throughout her journey, and never gave up or gave in, as her will to live, love, and mother her two precious daughters was of most importance.
“We love and need you Angel Kelly, give us strength as our lives will be forever changed.”
