Kelly Y. Sheldon
A beautiful shining soul has left us all way too soon. On the anniversary day of her mother’s passing, she came to take her home. To the heavens she whisked her off, to spend eternity dancing, singing and carrying on.
Kelly Y. Sheldon (Krazy Kelly), 59, of Johnstown, passed away peacefully on September 12, 2020. She was born in Gloversville, NY on December 26, 1960, the loving daughter of Roy and Doris Whitman of Northville, both have predeceased her.
She was known by many and loved by all. She touched so many lives it was hard to find someone who didn’t know her. She had a huge heart and was frequently known to throw you a peace sign and a “love you.” For the past 15 years she lived on, as she called it, D-Block, tending to her tiny porch garden, listening to her music and greeting everyone that walked down the street. Funny thing was, they all knew her. Those simple little things made her so happy, she loved life and lived it to its fullest.
Kelly was an honorary graduate of the Northville Central School, class of 1979. Though she actually completed her education in Tennessee, all her classmates at Northville considered her to be one of their graduating classmates. In her younger days she was a well-known bartender at many different venues in the area. She had made many acquaintances throughout those years, many of which become lifelong friends to her. She is going to be missed by so many people.
She is survived by her two sons, Brian Sheldon (Jes) of Johnstown and Dylan Sheldon (Amanda) of Gloversville; along with her two grandchildren, Tonya Marlene and Michael Odin Sheldon; one sister, Marjorie Hallenbeck of Johnstown; two nephews, Ted Marcais (a.k.a. Bubba T) and Jared Marcais; and her great-nephew. Logan. We can not forget her dearest friend MaryAnne VanNostrand, who helped to keep Kelly out of trouble, most of the time. Not to mention lots of cousins and all her great friends that she has met throughout her crazy but beautiful life. Last but not least her fur baby and roomie, Tunie, she will miss her momma dearly.
There will be no calling hours. A small private gathering will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in her honor to a charity of your choice. Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Gloversville Funeral Home, 4 Second Ave., Gloversville. Condolences may be made to the family online at www.gloversvillefuneralservice.com.
