It is with great sadness that The Kelly Group learned on Sunday of the passing of a valued former employee and dear friend of the firm, Sandra Reardon. Sandra, age 80, was an employee of The Kelly Group family for 14 years, from 2001-15, and remained a cherished member of The Kelly Group family even after her retirement. From the day she joined the Kelly Group, Sandra took our client-first culture to heart, quickly becoming a tremendous asset for our firm. Unfailingly reliable and diligent, she was always an enthusiastic and inspiring presence. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.
