Kelly L. Bosma

June 10, 1978 ~ August 17, 2020 (age 42)


Goshen, NH -  Kelly L. Bosma died peacefully at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center on August 17, 2020 in Lebanon, NH at the age of 42.

Kelly was born on June 10, 1978 in Greenfield, MA to David and Kathleen (Rouleau) Bosma.

She graduated from Newport High School before earning her Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education at River Valley in Claremont, NH.

Pursuing her passion, she worked at multiple daycare centers to include DCCCC and ABC Childcare at New London Hospital.  She always knew what to do or say to make a child smile, learn, and develop into the best version of themselves.  She could enter a room and immediately be swarmed by children; they just naturally gravitated to her gentle but strong demeanor. Though Kelly may not have had children of her own, she considered each child she cared for to be hers. She will always be with them in spirit.

Her family remembers her as a caring and gentle soul with a positive outlook on life, who lived her life to the fullest, and inspired others in the process. Kelly was a creative individual who loved crafting, scrapbooking, and the outdoors. She loved hiking, traveling, and chasing waterfalls.  She was an active gardener and absolutely adored sunflowers. She was always there when needed and was a beacon of light for many people.  

Kelly is predeceased by her grandparents, Robert Rouleau, Andrew Bosma, and Doris Bosma.

Surviving family members include her parents, David and Kathleen (Rouleau) Bosma of Goshen; brothers, Paul Bosma of Keene and Jason Bosma and his wife Sara of NY; sister, Kimberly Friel and her husband Kevin of Merrimack; grandmother, Marguerite Rouleau of MA; niece, Caelyn; nephews, Connor, Braeden, Matthew, and Aidan; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Memorial calling hours will be held on Sunday, August 23, 2020 from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Newton-Bartlett Funeral Home, 42 Main St. Newport, NH 03773.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Kelly's name to ABC Childcare, c/o New London Hospital, 273 County Rd, New London, NH 03257.  Kelly had so many ideas to share with the kids.  Helping fund those adventures is the best tribute anyone could give her.
