Patricia Ann Kelley

September 8, 1942 — January 14, 2019

Patricia Ann Kelley passed away on January 14, 2019.


Patty as she preferred, was born September 8, 1942 in Newport, Washington to Bloom and Dorothy Irish.  She grew up south of Sandpoint and attended Southside Elementary.  Patty graduated from Sandpoint High School.  Shortly after graduating she married and moved north of Sandpoint where she raised two children.


Patty was a substitute school bus driver for many years for the Bonner County School District.  And she had a great love for fishing and picking huckleberries.


After divorcing she moved to Lewiston, Idaho.  There her love for fishing continued at a favorite spot on the Snake River.


Patty was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, Walt Irish, two sisters Irene Andrews and Helen Battien and her son Stephen L. Kelley.


Patty is survived by one sister Mickey (Clay) Wagner of Priest Lake, her daughter Karen (Michael) Bishop of Sandpoint, four grandkids, 3 step grandkids, 4 great grandkids and 2 step great grandkids along with several cousins, nieces and nephews.


There will be no public service.  However since Patty had a hard life struggling with mental illness the family has asked that any remembrances for Patty be donated to support someone with mental illness or the homeless.
