Funeral Set for Emerald Club Owner

by

Mary Ann Kelly, long-time owner of the Emerald Club on Ninth Street, died June 8 at her daughter, Susie Stertz’s, home.

Kelly was a huge supporter of the downtown GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered) scene and it’s sadly fitting that her funeral will take place during Pride week, this Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Cloverdale Cemetery.

She’ll be greatly missed by all.
