Lara Caitlin “Caity” (Donley) Kelly, 22, of West Mansfield, died Tuesday June 18, 2013, from injuries she sustained in a motorcycle accident. She will be most remembered for her smile, special giggle, humor and geniality along with her infectious love of life and adventure.

She is survived by her husband, Brandon Kelly, whom she married July 5, 2012; her parents, Jim and Martha (Murphy) Donley; her brother, Sean; sister, Erin (Kyle) Painter; grandfather, Floyd Donley, Jr; aunts and uncles, Stella (Ed) Senig, Elaine Nixon, Ed (Sue) Murphy and Virginia Donley; niece and nephew, Cheyenne and Kyle Painter, Jr.; cousins, Amber (Ben) Roth, Andy and Claire Donley, Gayle (James) Coggins and David Donley; father-in-law, Mike Kelly; and mother-in-law, Dina Hanning.
