Kelly Jean Pierce of Groton, Massachusetts, passed away surrounded by love at Seven Hills Pediatric Center. Kelly was born in Springfield, Massachusetts on December 19, 1976. She lived in Monson, then in Northampton, before moving to Seven Hills in October of 2010. Kelly brought so much joy and happiness to all that knew her with her beautiful smile, and her infectious love of people. We will always remember the music and bells she adored.

Kelly is survived by her mother, Roberta Kim Pierce Hughes and her husband Robert; her brother Hunter, of Monson; her grandmother Joan Pierce, of Palmer; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family. Kelly was predeceased by her grandfather, Donald Pierce; her aunt, Cheri Pierce; and her cousins Cheri Lee, Noah, and Hannah.

Kelly’s family would like to thank all of her “family” from Seven Hills Pediatric Center in Groton for all of their love, kindness and support. Kelly’s life was so much better because of each of you. We would also like to thank everyone who worked with Kelly throughout the years at Northampton Nursing Home for Children for their kindness and loving care.

The family will hold a celebration of Kelly’s life on Saturday January 11, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. at the Second Congregational Church, 1080 Pleasant Street in Palmer, Massachusetts. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Seven Hills Pediatric Center, 22 Hillside Ave, Groton, MA 01450.
