Kelly Frances Rinaldi
Kelly Rinaldi of Acton-Boxborough, MA.
b. January 31, 1978
d. July 22, 2016.
Kelly leaves behind her big brother/best friend John, son Anthony-7, daughter Rowan-3, mother Kristen and survived by many many beloved friends and family.
Kelly's greatest gift was her selfless dedication to others, her kindness, and her generosity. 'she was the friend who was always there for any and everyone..
Kelly was extraordinarily talented in the food and beverage industry- opening and managing the most exclusive restaurants in both Boston and Manhattan. She also excelled in her true love of cosmetology- doing the perfect fade!
My Kelly Frances was A-list all the way! She was also my greatest/deepest most valued most loved friend + co-hort. As I'm sure many of you can relate.
NO ONE came between us- NO ONE.
At the time of her death she was procuring a law degree to right the many wrongs in law enforcement and the ills facing too many single mothers. Kelly struggled hard to provide for her babies- sometimes working 3jobs.
Her greatest role was being a mother and seeing to 'Boogie' and 'RoRo' had all that they needed, and more. Together we assured that both Anthony and Rowan's formative years were well thought out providing life long lessons that will undeniably become the blue-prints in which they live.
Kelly will be missed beyond words, and those of us who loved her- those of us who encouraged her and who never left her side, we will all walk forward with a heavier heart- it will never be ok, and it will never get any better.
