Kelly Hart Gordon
CHICAGO, IL - Kelly Hart Gordon, 45, passed away at her home in Chicago on August 3, 2017. Kelly was the daughter of the late Richard W. Gordon of Wilmington, DE and Barbara B. Woolley of Aiken, SC. Born in Newton, MA, she moved to Wilmington, DE at the age of two. Kelly graduated from The Tatnall School, attended Colorado State University and graduated Cum Laude from Widener University, with a B.S. in paralegal studies. She most recently worked as a paralegal for Walgreens at their headquarters in Deerfield, IL.
Kelly was a serial athlete, at various points in her life playing lacrosse, basketball, field hockey and golf, including a recent hole-in-one. She was instrumental in starting the lacrosse program at Christiana High School.
Kelly's passion during her adult life was golden retrievers, two of which, Matea and Hanna, she leaves behind. Through the years, she adopted, fostered and placed many retrievers for several golden retriever organizations, both in Delaware and Chicago.
Her generosity and kind soul will be truly missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her mother, Barbara B. Woolley and her stepfather, Clark H. Woolley, of Aiken, SC, her brother, Timothy W. Gordon (Katy), sister, Amy S. Gordon, uncle, Roger B. Gordon, aunt, Nancy Senior, and her beloved niece and goddaughter, Paige W. Gordon, all of Wilmington, DE, uncle Russell C. Bateson (Peggy) of Lexington, VA, numerous extended family members, and her loving companion Michael Conway.
A private service will be held for the family. The family hopes that Kelly's friends will consider a donation in her memory to "As Good as Gold" Golden Retriever Rescue of Illinois, 518 State Route 31 #178, McHenry, IL 60050, or to your local SPCA.
