Hazel P. Kelly, a retired receptionist and former Towson resident, died in her sleep Saturday at her Chestertown home. She was 92.

Born Hazel Naomi Parks and raised on Brady Avenue in Northeast Baltimore, she was a graduate of Eastern High School.

She had worked as a secretary at Western Electric's Point Breeze plant, then was a receptionist for 10 years at West Chemical Co. in Baltimore before retiring in 1969.

She was married in 1937 to Millard Alexander Kelly, an employee of Fidelity & Deposit Co. of Maryland who died in 1972.

A longtime resident of Marburth Avenue in Towson, she had lived in Chestertown since 1972.

Mrs. Kelly enjoyed baking desserts and designing and sewing clothes for family members and friends.

She also liked playing games, especially Yahtzee, and watching The Young and the Restless, family members said.

She was a former member of Towson Presbyterian Church.

Plans for a memorial service were incomplete yesterday.

She is survived by a son, Richard L. Kelly of Perry Hall; two daughters, Judy A. Kelly of Chestertown and Barbara K. Fisher of Parkville; a brother, Phillip Parks of Westminster; and two grandchildren.
