Marbeth OGrady

April 25, 1921 — Oct. 21, 2012

Marbeth (Toots) passed on Oct. 21, 2012, in Placerville, with her family by her side. She was born in Kentucky and moved with her family to Michigan during the Depression. During World War II she worked in a munitions factory assembling machine guns and met her husband Jack O’Grady at a USO Valentine’s Day dance in Michigan. They married and moved to Camp Reservation in Clinton, Miss., where Jack guarded German POWs. At the end of the war they moved to San Francisco, his home and her childhood dream. She lived on Alcatraz as a guard’s wife and had her first child, Edward, there.

Marbeth was a beautician by trade and owned a shop in San Francisco. When Jack retired from the SFPD they moved to Santa Rosa and enjoyed their retirement until he passed in 1991. She continued caring for herself and her beloved home in Santa Rosa until moving to Eskaton Placerville in 2011. She had many friends in Santa Rosa who supported and loved her. She loved fashion, travel and gardening. She was elegant in her demeanor and kind and loving in her heart.

Marbeth will be deeply missed by her son, Edward; his wife, Nancy; the love of her life, her grandson, Emmet; her daughter, Nancy and husband, Frank McKeever; and her extended family in Michigan. She is survived by her brothers, Curtis and Keith Kelley; and is now in the arms of her brothers Randall, Rudell and Tillman Kelley. Her family will forever be grateful to her best friend Jonna Wright for her endless support, to the staff of Eskaton Village Placerville for their loving care and to Snowline Hospice for their guidance.

Memorial services are pending at this time.
