Obituary of Kelly Lynn Upper

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our ray of sunshine, Kelly, on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, in her 42nd year. Loving mother of Michael and Sebastian Palechuk. Cherished daughter of Alan Upper and Cheryl Woiceshyn. Loving sister of Darlene (Justin), Jennifer (Josh), and step-sister of Lori (Gord), and Cathy (Stan). Kelly will be missed by her nephews and niece; Spencer, Maggie, Keith, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her step-father Terry Woiceshyn, and by her grandparents Dorothy & Harold Lapp, and Ray & Marg Upper.

Kelly’s bubbly and free spirit is a warm memory we will hold and cherish. As a child she was “happy go-lucky” and she enjoyed making friends. Kelly was born in Niagara Falls, but lived in Toronto most of her adult life. Her independence and “she’s just Kelly” personality will be missed by the world she leaves behind.

Arrangements have been entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Kelly’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be given to the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Rest in peace Kelly. May your spirit fly free.
