Melissa “Missie” Anne Kielty, 46, passed away on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at UNC Hospitals after a sudden illness. She was born in Henrico County, VA and was the daughter of Tom and Betsie Kielty, both surviving.
Missie enjoyed spending time with her cats and tropical fish, especially her angel fish which she raised. She also enjoyed working with crafts and plants. She loved her family and having quality time with them, especially her two nephews who she adored. She was a ray of sunshine, a friend to everyone and was always more concerned about others than herself.
She is survived by her significant other, Jason Leonard; parents, Tom and Betsie Kielty; brother and sister-in-law, Andy and Chantel Kielty; nephews, Zachary and Chase Kielty and several aunts, uncles, cousins and other extended family.
A service to celebrate her life will be held at 11:00 AM Thursday, March 17, 2022 at Lowe Funeral Home Chapel by Rev. Nathan Hooks with entombment to follow in Alamance Memorial Park Mausoleum. The family will receive friends from 6-8 Wednesday evening at the funeral home.
