Delia Consuela Gentry, 86, formerly of Jersey City, New Jersey, more recently of Concord, North Carolina passed away at home on June, 11, 2024. Delia was born on July 16, 1937 in McDowell County, West Virginia to the late Lottie Clark and Will Kurt Kelly.

Delia's life was a tapestry woven with love, sacrifice and unwavering dedication to her family. She had a heart filled with compassion and empathy. She was EVERYTHING to everyone. There were no limits to her kindness as she spent her life caring for others, opening her heart and home to others in need. Whether assuming the mantle of mother, grandmother, aunt or caregiver, Delia's legacy is etched in the hearts of all who had the privilege of being touched by her soul.
