Je suis vraiment triste d'apprendre cette nouvelle. J'étais la professeure de Kelly à l'automne 2014, et je me souviens très bien d'elle. Mes condoléances à sa famille.

Gaby Fuchs - 9 days ago

Kelly was such a beautiful person full of love and life. She was so kind and giving. I will never forget her. My condolences.

Stefanie Corona - 9 days ago

Kelly was an incredible Co-op student and alum. She led us to hire our first facilitator for the Vous êtes engagé French program at Co-op and was a big supporter of our Shuffle Team Chen over the years. She volunteered at so many Co-op events including open houses and was always willing to give back to Co-op in any way she could whenever she was asked. My deepest condolences to Kelly's family. May her memory be a blessing. Kelly, you will not be forgotten.

Stephanie Bennett - 9 days ago

Kelly was one of my teachers in Translation at Concordia and I kept in touch with her via email after graduating. She helped to revise some of my first texts as a freelancer and also would answer my questions and give me tips. She was always kind and helpful despite being very busy. I came to consider her a friend. I am deeply shocked to have just found out this news and offer my sincere condolences to her family and loved ones.

Leslie Ann Hughes - 9 days ago

Dear Oliel Family, Please accept my deepest, heartfelt condolences concerning your loss of Kelly. She was too young to leave this earth. I'm truly gutted. I worked very closely with Kelly as the coordinator of mentorship and volunteer programs at Concordia's Institute for Co-operative Education . She volunteered as a co-op mentor multiple semesters and volunteered many times for co-op events like Concordia's Open House etc...She was a fantastic mentor, with great compassion,translation knowledge she imparted to her mentees and her past teaching experience made her even better. She was such a kind human and had such a lovely, warm spirit .

Julia Jones - 15 days ago

Dear Melanie, Sam, Scott and family, I'm so very sorry for your loss and thinking of you at this difficult time. It's hard to describe how much Kelly meant to me in just a few short words. Kelly was like a big sister to me in the translation world, an amazing co-working buddy, and one of my very best friends. When we first met as members of the graduate student association in translation at Concordia, I immediately noticed her gift for making people feel special. She was generous with her time and knowledge, incredibly caring, and went above and beyond to offer help to anyone who needed it. Kelly was also a talented translator, and one of the most hardworking and conscientious people I've ever met! She had so many interests and you could talk to her about anything (from books to recipes to sports), and her love for animals was inspiring - she was one of the people who inspired me to go vegan, and I always loved getting photos/videos of her beloved birds and hearing about their latest antics! I'll remember her for her warmth, optimism and great sense of humour, as well as the love and genuine care she showed her family and friends, even in her most difficult moments. I miss Kelly more than words can say and feel incredibly privileged to have known her. May her memory be a blessing.

Sherry Simon - 20 days ago

Dear family, I offer my sincerest condolences. Kelly was a student in several of my classes at Concordia. I have vivid memories of Kelly--she was always enthusiastic and did wonderful work. She had such a strikingly warm presence. She was also an active participant in student activities, taking on all sorts of tasks, always keen and inspiring to others. There are many students who pass through our translation programs, but Kelly was truly remarkable and will be greatly missed. Please know that I am thinking of you and your family at this unimaginably sad time.

Alexander Monette - 20 days ago

Dear Oliel family, My deepest condolences to you for the loss of Kelly. I knew Kelly from Concordia University in the translation program, she was the sweetest soul . She brought life and energy into all her fellow students and participated in many activities, usually with the intent of helping others. She will truly be missed. I am in disbelief and shock that someone could pass away at such a young age . I give my heartfelt synpathies to her family members as they mourn the loss of a beautiful soul.

Adrienne Campbell - 21 days ago

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Oliel, Mr. Scott Oliel, and family, My deepest condolences and my prayers, for the loss of Kelly... Kelly and I were friends when we volunteered together at the SPCA (around 2004). Kelly had a heart for helping, and I remember her getting involved in every way that she could... petfinder, fundraising, and she even took the grooming course! She had a gentle, quiet and humourous spirit about her... I remember we had formed a fundraising team together, and we would call each other during the day and get so excited every time someone made a donation - I believe we won 2nd place for most funds raised... Kelly made such a difference, such an impact, but she did so quietly and humbly. You raised a beautiful person, and God blessed the world, if only for a short time, with an example for all of us to look to... May God's peace cover you... Adrienne

Karen Schucher - 21 days ago

I worked with Kelly for many years and, even though, we never met in person, I spoke to her a few times on the phone and she was such a nice person (and an excellent translator!).

Marie-Claude Cadieux - 24 days ago

Dear Melanie, Mr. Oliel, Scott and family, I want to offer you my deepest condolences and my most sincere sympathies. I am absolutely heartbroken. Kelly was such a special and wonderful person. I met Kelly when at only 16 years of age, she started volunteering at the Montreal SPCA. I liked her from the moment we met. She was so kind and compassionate. She helped so many animals get adopted and she was always so nice to everybody. Working closely with Kelly in different volunteer programs, I could always count on her; even as a teenager, she was so mature and professional! But it was her heart that I appreciated the most. That sweet, sweet heart. We became friends in spite of our age difference. Over the last year, Kelly sharing what she was going through helped me tremendously. She was always so positive and so strong. She has always had and will always have a special place in my heart. I miss her dearly.

Jill Swan - 25 days ago

I never met Kelly in person, but I worked with her on some translations when she was freelancing. In every email she was friendly, conscientious and serious about her work, and just seemed like a genuinely lovely person. And a great translator as well! I am sorry I wasn't able to get to know her better. My sincere condolences to her family and friends, she will be missed.

I will always treasure every advice she has ever given me, all of our inside jokes, all of day-to-day talks, and more importantly: the time we had together. Kelly entered my life as an stranger as a client at Second Cup and became my best friend. I will always miss her and I will always love her. Her strength and her courage will always be remembered to us all. Her legacy will always live in my heart forever. You are all in my thoughts in prayers during this time.
