Bloomington - Albert "Al" Kelley, 90, of Bloomington, passed away Friday, December 15, 2017 at Mclean County Nursing Home, Normal.

Al was born April 26, 1927 in Bloomington, the son of Harry W. and Mabel Ahlers Kelley. He married Mary Jean Jenkins July 5, 1947, in Bloomington. She passed away in 2006.

Also preceding him in death were his parents; a brother Edward; and one sister, Minnie Kelley Carey.

Surviving are his daughter, Sue (Lou) Saunier, Cooksville; grandchildren, Britt (Julie) Saunier, North Port, FL; Danielle (Craig) Miesner, Atlanta, IL; great-grandchildren, Auston Saunier, Dalton Saunier, Caleb Miesner, Kyle Miesner, and Cody Miesner; one sister, Wilma Kelley; several nephews, cousins and one niece.

Al started working at a very young age. He fondly remembered working at Breen Beverage in the 1950-1960's with routes in Bloomington and communities outside the city. He retired from there and loved his work as custodian at Bent School District 87.

Al always had a smile for everyone he met. He will be missed by all of us but God has bigger plans for him. Rest Dad.

Thank you to all who helped dad in his time of need especially his friends, family, Pastor Wardell, and caregivers at Mclean County Nursing Home.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 4:00 p.m. Monday, December 18, 2017 at East Lawn Funeral Home, Bloomington. Online condolences may be shared with the family at
