Kelly Redovian Hughes, age 51, died on February 8, 2018, a little over two years after her diagnosis of a malignant brain tumor. Kelly passed peacefully at home surrounded by her family.
Kelly was born in Fairview Park, Ohio, the first of six children for Jim and Sherrill Redovian. The family moved to Atlanta in 1977. She graduated from Dunwoody High School in 1984. She attended Auburn University and graduated with a degree in Nursing. She began and ended her nursing career of 27 years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta. Over her career, she worked as the Nursing director for five dialysis centers in Honolulu, Hawaii and as a legal nurse consultant for Hall, Booth, Smith and Slover Law Firm in Atlanta. Kelly touched the lives of so many as a nurse. Her caring and compassionate attitude was always appreciated by her patients and respected by her colleagues. Truly, her passion was taking care of people.
As passionate as Kelly was about nursing, the true source of joy in her life was her children, Anna Claire and Max. Kelly served countless roles in her children’s lives such as homeroom mother, scout leader, and even team mom. Her tireless devotion to her children could be seen in her willingness to drive Anna Claire, six days a week, to ballet and homeschooling Max for four years. Kelly was a loving mother and devoted wife. She was married to her husband Chris for over 24 years.
Kelly is proceeded in death by her brother Timothy J. Redovian. She leaves behind her husband Chris and children Anna Claire and Max Hughes, her parents James M. and Sherrill Redovian Sr., her siblings: James M. (Angie) Redovian Jr., children; Lorie A.(John) Davis, children; Daniel C. (Christine) Redovian, children; and Alex C. (Golsa) Redovian.
A memorial service will be held at Dunwoody Baptist Church (1445 Mt. Vernon Rd. Dunwoody, GA 30338) on February 17, 2018 at 2:00pm. Visitation will be at 1:00 pm and the service will be followed by a light reception.
