Julianne Frances Kelly
Student
June 27, 1968 - December 21, 1988 (Age: 20)

Julianne Frances Kelly was returning home to Dedham, Massa­chusetts to spend Christmas with her mother, Rita; and two sisters, Mary Ellen Kelly and Janice Reese. Her father, Thomas Kelly, had died in 1982. Julianne was a Syracuse University student, one of 35 on that plane, who had spent a semester in London, England. She was a junior in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications who was pursuing a double major in political science and public relations.

Described as "romantic" by her teachers, Julianne had graduated from Dedham High School in 1986. She was remembered there as a gifted writer, head of the cheerleading squad, lead performer in a school production of Grease, and a talented singer. Her interest in writing and the arts led her to Syracuse. Teachers explain that she was also a very good songwriter. This multitalented dreamer had recently refocused her educational plans and was considering studying law after graduation from Syracuse. With her many talents and interests, the future looked indeed bright for Julianne.

A prolific poetry writer, Julianne leaves us this poignant fragment of her poetry.

Orb
We are all like night snow that dances through the silvery
orb of the streetlight then is lost.
Think of me as night snow that, in turn, danced through the silvery orb of the streetlight
then was lost in soft darkness.
from "Journals" by Julianne Frances Kelly
