December 9, 1920 - May 9, 2021
Rose Mary Kelleher passed away peacefully in Perrysburg, Ohio on May, 9, 2021, at age 100, fittingly on Mother's Day and what an incredible loving supportive mother she was! She had her 100th birthday last December 9th. Sadly we had to celebrate it on Zoom, but fortunately we had a terrific celebration and family reunion for her 99th birthday. Rose Mary loved her family and would host holiday gatherings, tailgates for Notre Dame football games and always enjoyed time with her 9 children, 20 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. In addition, she and John would love to travel to Big Sky, Montana to host family and friends at their condo year round. She also enjoyed many years of golf with the ladies 18 hole group at Inverness Country Club, stitchery group "Stitch and Bitch", ladies bowling league as well as being an avid reader, dancer, skier, diver and swimmer. Rose Mary was born December 9, 1920 to Alfred and Bernice O'Donnell and she was the last living member of the amazing O'Donnell family of Elyria, OH. Rose Mary had a lively spirit and zest for life. Rose Mary married the love of her life, her beloved John Charles Kelleher and they enjoyed 63 years of laughter, dancing and deep love. Rose Mary and John had nine children who will attest to Rose Mary's strength of spirit and faith. Through the years, Rose Mary endured hardship and loss of family and friends but she had the strength of a lion and she was able to move forward and enjoy a life well lived. We are all blessed to have her as a role model! What a clamor must have risen from her family and friends as Rose Mary joined them reunited heaven.
