Marlene E. Kelly
April 4, 1942 – June 18, 2020

Age 78, of Roseville, MN; passed away peacefully on June 18, 2020.


Preceded in death by her mother, Emma Cooper; and two brothers.


Remaining to cherish her memory is her loving husband, Edward “Ed” Kelly; children, Kathleen “Katie” (Mike) Kelly-Landberg,  James Kelly, and Erin Kelly; adoring grandchildren, Claire, Lillian, & Olivia Landberg and Zara, Anya, & Zachary Kelly; beloved sisters, Muriel Tobin of Peoria, IL and Marion Page of Lodi, CA; and many dear friends.


Marlene was born April 4, 1942 in Peoria, IL. She met Ed in Peoria and they were married November 23, 1968. Shortly thereafter they moved to the Chicago area. In 1973 Ed and Marlene were transferred by 3M to Roseville, MN where they raised three children.


Marlene was a proud wife, mother, and grandmother. The Kelly pool was frequently teeming with family and neighborhood friends because of the warm atmosphere she created. Marlene also ran her painting business where she created special home décor and apparel that made many memories in homes and hearts friends and frequent customers. Marlene enjoyed traveling with her family, giving her time to their local church, volunteering at her children’s school, going to movies with Ed and frequenting the local YMCA.  Most of all, she cherished spending time with the people she loved.


Due to COVID, we know many of Marlene’s family and friends could not see her in the last three months the way they would have preferred. Therefore, we are celebrating Marlene’s life with a visitation and funeral following social distancing protocols. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1:30 PM Friday, June 26 at ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST CATHOLIC CHURCH, 380 E. Little Canada Rd, Little Canada. Interment will be at St. John’s Church Cemetery. Visitation from 3-6 PM Thursday at MUELLER-BIES FUNERAL HOME-ROSEVILLE, 2130 N Dale St at Co Rd B, and from 12:30 – 1:30 PM Friday at the church.


Please note, the Mass will be recorded and later posted on this page for those who would like to say goodbye and send love from afar.


In lieu of flowers, we would be honored if you'd donate to Marlene's memorial at the American Heart Association.
