Donald J. Kelley

Donald J. Kelley, 60, of Luck, WI passed away unexpectedly along with his wife, Robin, due to an automotive accident on Saturday, Oct 27th. Don was born on May 5th, 1958 in St. Paul to parents Ed & Pat Kelley (nee Sisterman). In 1985, he & his father went on to open Kelley Gallery Art & Frame. Don loved what he did, & never considered it his job so much as his passion.

In 1986, Don married Sue Meuwissen (nee Engstrom) & together they had three children before their marriage dissolved 28 years later. Don would go on to remarry Robin Kelley (nee Nowinsky) on January 20th, 2017. Though the two of them only spent just short of two years in marriage, they did more together in that time than many could wish to do in a lifetime.

Don will remain in the hearts of his beloved children, Blake, Monica, & Rachel Kelley of Woodbury; his cherished step-children, Riley Renkwitz of St. Paul & Reena Penkwitz of Tacoma, WA; his treasured siblings, Tom (Kimberly) Kelley, Rick (Shawn) Kelley, Jeanie (Gary) Pacolt, Barb (Al) McNamee, & Bobby (Danielle) Kelley; his caring first wife Sue (Dan) Meuwissen; many dear nieces & nephews, as well as close cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents, Ed & Pat Kelley (nee Sisterman).

A Visitation for Don & Robin was held Thursday, Nov. 1 from 4:00-7:00 PM at O'Connell Family Funeral Home, Hudson. A Funeral Mass for Don & Robin took place on Friday, Nov. 2 at 3:00 PM, preceded by a one-hour visitation at St. Patrick Parish, Hudson. Interment Willow River Cemetery, Hudson.
