Kelly, Christine Jane* - Formerly Of Elverson  
Christine Jane Kelly, formerly of Elverson Christine Jane Kelly, nee Payton, passed away on the evening of Dec. 10, 2014, at Tel Hai Retirement Community, where she had been a resident since shortly after suffering a stroke in April. She was 86. Born in Bridgeton, N.J., Christine was a graduate of Haverford High School. She married Joseph R. Kelly in 1947. She devoted herself to her four children, Ken, D. Kelly, Chris, and Sophia, and courageously stood with them no matter what adversity they faced. She would later show the same devotion to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Christine was a strong woman, facing personal adversity with bravery and determination. She spent the years following the divorce constantly searching for ways to improve herself, and in the process became adventurous - sometimes, she would admit, a little too adventurous. Throughout her life she inspired others with her creativity and willingness to master new skills. After years of sewing and knitting she became a prolific painter. She imparted to all her love of language through books, crosswords, and Scrabble. Christine spent her later years living at Saint Mary's of Providence in Elverson. In the spring and summer she tended her beloved garden; during the long winters she dreamed of spring. She is survived by her children Ken Kelly, D. Kelly Ely, and Sophia Kelly Shultz; grandchildren Jessica, Jaclyn and Emily, as well as her sister Lynne Koppenhoefer and brothers Gerry and Eddie Payton. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 14 at Tel Hai Retirement Community, Honey Brook. To send the family online condolences visit us at www.groffeckenroth.com .

Kerper, Mary Elizabeth Ciaffoni* - Formerly Of West Chester  
Mary Kerper, formerly of West Chester Mary Kerper, nee Mary Elizabeth Ciaffoni, 85, passed away November 23,2014 at the Shannondell retirement community in Valley Forge. She was born to Domenico Ciaffoni and Marion Thomas Ciaffoni on Christmas Eve of 1928 at their home on Price Street in West Chester. Shortly after her birth, Mary's family moved to Marshallton, where she attended Elementary and Middle School at the old schoolhouse on Sugars Bridge Road. Mary attended High School in West Chester. During her youth, Mary was an avid horseback rider, and while not having a horse of her own, she regularly exercised horses at the Baldwin and Montgomery farms just a few miles walk down the road near Northbrook and the West Brandywine Creek. She often talked about how one of her favorite horses would see her walking up the road and would rush out to greet her before their rides. She became proficient enough to be invited to participate in some of the fox hunts held in the area at the time. Mary played the piano and the organ at Marshallton Methodist Church and attended West Chester State majoring in music, where she met Bob Kerper, a track and swimming star. (They dated for a while and then broke off their relationship.) Mary married Stan Walters, Jr. in 1951 and had two sons, Mark and David. She was a wonderful mother. She was also an accomplished painter, and many of her highly detailed watercolors of Chester County's covered bridges are still in the possession of her children, grand- children and private buyers. Mary was a member of the Coatesville Choraliers in the '50's and '60's where she sang with them at several Miss Pennsylvania Pageants and at a Republican National Convention. In 1966, Mary and Stan divorced, and she and the boys moved back to Marshallton and lived in the other half of the duplex home owned by her mother. At that time, Mary worked at Jerrahian's Oriental Rug Store in West Chester for seven years. In 1973, Mary married Frank Barclay and moved to downtown Philadelphia in the vicinity of 5th street and St. James Ct. about two blocks from Independence Hall where they lived together for 23 years. Mr. Barclay, a kind man who was a role model for Mary's kids, passed suddenly in 1996. After a chance encounter 50 years after they had last seen each other, Mary and Bob resumed their college romance and married in 1999. Several years later, they moved to Shannondell in Valley Forge. Mrs. Kerper was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, in 2013, and is survived by her older brother Robert Ciaffoni formerly of Milwaukee and Destin Florida, by her son Mark, his wife Susie and grandchildren Caitlyn and Matthew, by her son, David, his wife Wendy, and granddaughters Shelby, Chelsea and Taryn, and by Bob's children Ellen, Jim, Martha, John and their families. Services will be held at Marshallton Methodist Church, 1282 W. Strasburg Rd. West Chester, PA 19382 in Marshallton at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13, with a short graveside service to follow in the church cemetery. A reception will be held at the Four Dogs Tavern after the ceremony. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the "Mary Ciaffoni Kerper Music Scholarship" at West Chester University. Checks should be made out to "WCU Foundation" with a reference to the scholarship on the memo line or with an enclosed note and can be mailed to the WCU Foundation, P.O. Box 541, West Chester, PA 19381 Arrangements by DellaVecchia, Reilly, Smith & Boyd Funeral Home, Inc. 610-696-1181, www.DellaFH.com .
