Mary Kelson was born in Holy Hill, SC on February 10, 1941. Mary was the fourth child born to Lawton and Malisha Gilliard.
Mary was preceded in death by her late brother Dennis Gilliard Sr., her late sister Maggie Gilliard of New York City, her late brother Freddie Brodrick of New York City. And of course myself, I am her last living sister, Carrie Thomas of Atlanta, GA.
Mary leaves to mourn her memories, one daughter Mrs. Elizabeth A. Vaughn of Surprise, AZ and three sons, Michael A. Gilliard of S. Ozone Park, New York, Antonio M. Gilliard of Sun City, AZ and Tyrone Gilliard of Scottsdale, AZ. And her late son Willie Kelson. Also a host of nieces, cousins, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends.
Mary was the best in her field of nursing. Working in the field of geriatric people. Mary was loved unconditionally by everyone who knew her. Mary was a kind, loving person. She will be missed by many.
My family and I would like to thank you all for helping us celebrate the life and going home of Mary Kelson.
Though she was abruptly called home, she still had the opportunity to live a full and unique life.
