Brigitte “Kitty” Kelsey, 82 of Hopkinton, Massachusetts, died after a brief illness on January 15, 2016 in her home, surrounded
by her family. She is predeceased by her late husband, Richard “Dick” Kelsey.
Kitty was born and raised in Berlin, Germany during WWII. At the age of 25, she moved to the United States after meeting and
marrying her American Serviceman. She was a homemaker until her two children were in school. She then enjoyed working as a waitress for 30 years, first at the North Pond House, where they named the bar in her honor, and later, for O’Tooles. For the past five years, she had enjoyed serving lunch to the seniors at the Hopkinton Senior Center, often alongside her daughter, Heidi, and granddaughter, Sarah. She enjoyed watching old movies on the TCM channel, reading romance novels, sunbathing on the beach, playing Pitch with friends, and spending time with her family. She was a devoted mother, Oma, and friend. She touched the lives of everyone who met her; she will be sorely missed.
Kitty is survived by her son, Jim Kelsey and his wife, Tish of Chelmsford; her daughter Heidi Kelsey and partner Frank Bayley of Milford; five grandchildren: Jillian Kelsey-Rose and partner Ryan Entwistle, Alex Stewart and partner Ashley Casey, Sarah Bessuille and her husband Jason, Kyle Kelsey and Jake Kelsey; and two great-grandsons, Tyler Stewart and Lifthrasir Entwistle.
Private services and burial will be held at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Hopkinton. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center at Milford Regional Medical Center and Hopkinton Senior Center. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton.
