Kelly Liberty

Kelly Liberty passed away suddenly after a brief illness on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at her home in Averill Park.

Born in Troy, NY on March 2, 1964, she was the daughter of Ellin Reutemann Liberty of Troy NY, and William Liberty of Ocala Fl.

She was loving mother of Samantha L. Fisch of Hampton, NH and Jacob Morgan (Jake) Fisch of Troy, NY.

Kelly was a graduate of Catholic Central High School in Troy and went on to earn a degree in Graphic Design from the Sage Colleges of Albany. She was employed by Radiant Pools in Albany NY as the Director of Marketing. Additionally, she was recently named to the board of directors for the Pool and Spa News Inc.

Kelly was a beloved friend to many. She enjoyed her time with friends at Long Lake NY and Burlington Vt. She was also a devoted volunteer, for many years, delivering meals for the annual Equinox Thanksgiving Dinner celebration in Albany NY.

Kelly was devoted supporter of the Arts.  She was especially proud of Jake’s many performances in area productions.  She was a lover of music and enjoyed going to concerts and musical history. Kelly loved to cook and enjoyed creating unique dishes for her family and friends. She was also a long- time supporter of Youth Hockey and season ticket holder for the Albany River Rats.

In addition to her parents and children, Kelly is survived by her loving sisters Colleen (Andrew) O’Flaherty, and Kathleen (Kevin) Liberty Zotto, and her loving brothers Daniel (Carol) Liberty, Timothy (Paige) Liberty and Michael (Laura) Liberty as well as many nieces and nephews.

There’s zero point in trying to control the future. But what we CAN control are the people we choose. Choosing our people is the closest we come to controlling our destiny. Because, while everything else may change, if you choose right, your people will stay the same”

My deepest condolences to the Liberty family. I knew Kelly as a classmate at CCHS and later as Facebook friend from afar. I remember her then and in recent years as full of life and an independent woman who made the most of life. Again, I'm sorry for your loss.

My most sincere condolences to the Liberty family during a very difficult time. Kelly was the life of the party. She had so much good energy and a deep love of life. We shared many great times at Marist. I will always remember her fondly and am deeply sorry for your loss.

Mrs. Liberty , My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time. I am so sorry to hear of Kellys passing. I was with her not so long ago and had the opportunity to once again laugh with her as we reminisced our high school sycaway days!! She was an amazing ,smart , kind person who also had a sarcastic wit which could make everyone around her laugh. I will always remember her beautiful smile and fun loving spirit. Colleen Millington

It is with extreme shock and sadness that I learned of Kellys passing. We shared so many hours together as teens, it seems like just yesterday. Kelly had the most beautiful smile, was entirely fun to be around and she had a truly genuine spirit of kindness. People used to say that she looked like Brooke Shields when we were in HS, she was so naturally beautiful. I was always impressed with her keen intelligence which was far beyond her years. And she was a backgammon genius! Mrs. Liberty and to Kellys entire family, please accept my most heartfelt condolences at this very sad time. Kelly was an amazing person and I will cherish many good memories of her.
