WOODSTOCK – Kelly VanReeth passed away peacefully Friday, May 3, 2013, from complications of the heart and lungs. Family and friends were present at her bedside. She was a cancer survivor and fought a very courageous battle against her many medical issues.
She was born March 7, 1969, and grew up in Elk Grove Village. She earned her culinary degree and later her business degree. She most recently worked at Abbott Labs and then Sears Holdings. When medical conditions kept her from working full time, she became a certified life and business coach working from home. She loved her work and was not one to sit still.
She is survived by her husband, Phil ""P.J.""; her mother, Alice Harriett; sister, Tracy (Frank) Macino; and nieces and nephews, Francesca and Anthony Macino, Joseph, Shannon and Kate VanReeth, and Austin and Elizabeth Ordway.
She was preceded in death by her father, Clyde ""Dick"" Harriett; and many aunts and uncles.
The visitation will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Monday, May 6, with an 8 p.m. chapel service at Grove Memorial Chapel, 1199 S. Arlington Heights Road, Elk Grove Village.
