Eulogy for Anne Christinia O'Sullivan Kelly
given by Her Grandson Timothy Patrick Daly 

Good Morning,
I wanted to start off by saying thank you to  everyone for being here today.  We are here to celebrate my Grandma, Anne, and I know
she meant something very different to  us all. My sister, Kelly's early memories of Grandma are very different than mine.  Kelly always told me that Grandma used to tell her, "don't call me Grandma- call me Anne" in her Cork accent.  Whereas my first memories of Anne were very different.  She would tell me to pick out a stick in the backyard so she could beat my behind with it.  I guess she got used to the responsibilities of the title, "Grandma."  Grandma was always sweet, but tough, in my upbringing.   My fondest memory of Grandma would have to be, when she was living with Jack and I, after her Alzheimer's diagnosis.  One day Jack and I were playing video games when we heard some tumbling down the stairs.  Grandma fell down the whole flight, and saw our concern, but she rose with the unshakable personality she always had.  She said (excuse my language Father) " I'm  a tough old b*word, now get me a beer" and that is how I'll remember my Grandmother. She may have struggled physically and mentally in the years that she raised me, but she still carried the same aura that she did when she was stealing dresses from the penthouses she cleaned, when she came to New York.   I'm thankful for the love she received from her 7 Siblings and for the Marriage that she and my Grandfather enjoyed more than 50 years.  I'm grateful for the amazing care she received from the nurses at Shervier  and especially my Aunty Anne and Uncle Brendan.  And, of course, I'm thankful that all of us are here together for this celebration of her life.  She used to love the riddle " A house full a room-full but you can't get a spoonful!"  And here we are with a room-full of people that she loved in her 94 years.
