The following e-mail was sent by Tom Bird, announcing the death of Evelyn Kelly:
On April 28, while a good number of us were in Las Vegas at the ARA National Convention our good friend Evelyn Kelly passed away.
Evelyn Stiteler Kelly was born in New York City on June 11, 1930. Evelyn always supported the retirees, especially on that trip for the protest in New York City and our retiree issues.
Evelyn moved out west in the 1950s. She was predeceased by two husbands: Burton Stiteler, and later our special friend, Sylvester Kelly, a long time member of IBEW 1245, who was instrumental in defending retiree benefits at NV Energy.
