Ralph Marion
Celebrating 98 years!
Lovdie “Dee” Kelley, a resident
of Raritan Health in Raritan N.J.,
recently celebrated her 98
th
birthday.
She is a 1931 graduate of one of
Lycoming College’s predecessor
institutions, Dickinson Seminary,
and one of the College’s oldest
living alumni.
At the seminary, Dee studied art
while working for the art section
of a local paper company. She also
had her work exhibited in several
shows. When the World War I
began, she took a hiatus from her
art and attended technical school for
drafting.
After the war, Dee worked
for AT&T in Maryland, and later
married Larry Kelley, the first
Heisman Trophy winner.
Her favorite pastimes include
reading, doing puzzles and spending
time with her cat, “Chai,” named
after one of her favorite beverages.
