Obituary Condolences

Mary Frances Bossio Jelly

1922-2012 Mary Frances Jelly (Bossio), 90, passed away on Saturday, August 25th in Greenfield, Mass.

Born in Brighton, Mass., Mary was the daughter of Joseph and Rafaela Bossio.

She is predeceased by her husband, Basil T. Jelly, with whom she enjoyed 60 years of marriage at the time of his passing.

She is survived by her son, Davis Huntington Jelly (Ellen Murray) of South Windsor, Conn., as well as her daughter, Victoria Palmer (Dr. Jeffrey Palmer) of Greenfield, Mass., as well as her brother, the Reverend Patrick Bossio of Lincoln Park, Michigan and her sister, Laura Pizzuto of Avon, Mass. Additionally, Mary leaves her grandchildren, Emily, Rachel and Andrew Palmer and Christopher and Michael Jelly.

Mary was a dedicated homemaker, church and community volunteer. She began her married life living in the coastal communities in Maine, later moving to the Berkshires in Massachusetts. Upon the retirement of her husband, she transplanted to the warmth of Florida, yet summered in the Mad River Valley area of Vermont where the draw of foliage surrounded her. She enjoyed traveling domestically and abroad, as well as reading and sewing.

Walker Funeral Home and Ker Westerlund Funeral Home, Brattleboro, Vt., are in charge of arrangements. A private memorial service is planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mary's memory are requested to the First United Methodist Church, Greenfield, MA.
