She was born in Brooklyn on August 20, 1935 the daughter of Martin and Annie Sheedy. On October 12, 1957 she married her beloved husband, Paul G. Kelly who died July 6, 1974. Eileen was a former employee of the Brookhaven National Laboratory for 25 years before her retirement August 31, 2000. She was an Administrative Services Assistant to the Reactor Technology Department. She is survived by her daughter Kathleen Anderson and her three sons Paul F. Kelly, Kevin M. Kelly and Brian P.

Her funeral Mass is 10am Saturday morning at St. Joseph the Worker Church. Burial will follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. Her famly suggest the following charities for friends and family who wish to donate "in lieu of flowers..." to consider: The first is for the Cloistered Nuns of St. Dominic's Monastery. These lovely nuns have prayed for the intentions of the Kelly/Sheedy/Anderson families for years. They live in Linden, VA - about an hour from McLean. Their vocation is one of constant prayer so they rely on the generosity of those who live outside the Monastery. Mom/Eileen Kelly met these nuns on a few occasions with Kathy/her daughter and had a soft spot for their holiness, goodness, joy and commitment to prayer.

Website: https://www.hillsdale.edu To donate: https://secured.hillsdale.edu/hillsdale/donate-ppc Friends/family may also consider a donation to St. Joseph the Worker RC Church in memory of Eileen M Kelly. Mom was a parishioner at St. Joseph's for over 50 years. I believe they have been struggling financially since the start of the pandemic. Information re: how to donate via check or credit card can be found on their website at: https://stjosephtheworker.weconnect.com Checks can be mailed to the parish address.
