ALBANY- Isabelle M. (Kelly) Carroll, 74, passed away peacefully at home March 9, 2018.

Missy was born in Albany on December 23, 1943, one of eight children of the late James and M. Isabelle (Crone) Kelly. In her youth she was a communicant of St. Vincent de Paul Parish and a graduate of Vincentian Institute and began working at National Commercial Bank & Trust, now known as Key Bank. Married to William Joseph Carroll of Albany on December 28, 1963 in Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto at VI, Missy devoted herself to family and the care of the couple’s children. As the children grew Missy attended Maria College and returned to the workforce and retired from the New York State Department of Labor in 2007. In retirement she and her husband enjoyed trips with friends to Ireland and Cape Cod. In private, Missy prayed for many, and was a longtime communicant of The Parish of Mater Christi.

Missy is survived by her husband William, and children Christine (Tim) Gordon, Brian (Kate) Carroll, Michele (Christopher) White, Scott (Christine Motta) Carroll, Timothy (Melissa Jones) Carroll, Maura (Brian) Harrison and Daniel Carroll.
