Elizabeth Catherine Paganucci Kelly Obituary
AUGUST 5, 2018
Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Elizabeth Catherine Paganucci Kelly went to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 5, 2018.

Elizabeth was born in San Antonio, Texas to Italian immigrant parents, Mary and Bernard Paganucci, on October 9, 1937. She was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Annette Ganelle, her niece, Krista Elizabeth Butler, her brother-in- law, Walter Ray Butler, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

She is survived by her husband of 58 years, William M. Kelly; daughters, Gina Marie Eckhart and husband Byron, Andrea Marie Gonzalez and husband William, Paula Marie Kelly; sister, Gilda Paganucci Butler; brother, Gene Frank Paganucci; grandchildren, Alissa Robbins and husband David, Alana Menendez and husband Kelvin, Ivanna Saucedo and husband Ricardo, Deandra, Sabrina, Joseph, and Isabella Gonzalez; great grandchildren, Jerome, Harrison and Hunter Menendez, Everlee Robbins, and another great grandchild due in March; nephew, Anthony Paganucci; nieces, Gianna Comin and husband Robert, Lauran Danhakl and husband Jason; great nephews, Gannon Comin, Brayson Danhakl; great niece, Brynley Danhakl.

Elizabeth "Liz" was incredibly passionate about and proud of her Italian heritage. She was a lifelong member of San Francesco di Paola Catholic Church, a member and past president of the Christopher Columbus Italian Society Ladies Auxiliary, and Ladies of UNICO. Along with her husband, she was also a parishioner since 1963 of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, and was a strong supporter of Catholic education. She was active as a parent volunteer, PTC member, school board member, room mother, and chaired numerous events for Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, Ursuline Academy, and Incarnate Word High School.

Elizabeth lived her life selflessly, in service to God, her entire family, and to others. She was a devoted "Nanie" to all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren and was the inspiration and ever-flowing source of immense love to her children, sons-in-law, and all the family; her desire was to always "keep everyone together" and she described this as her biggest blessing. She was grateful for all of her friends who visited her and prayed for her.

A Rosary will be recited Monday, August 13, at 7:00 P.M. at The Angelus Chapel, with visitation beginning at 6:00 P.M. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 14, at 10:00 A.M. at San Francesco di Paola Catholic Church. Interment will follow in San Fernando Archdiocesan Cemetery # 2.

Pallbearers: Byron Eckhart, William Gonzalez, Joseph Gonzalez, David Robins, Kelvin Menendez, Ricardo Saucedo, Anthony Paganucci; Honorary pallbearers, Robert Comin, Mike Pantuso, and John Pantuso.
