Kelly Fallon Pandolfino passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully comforted by her partner, Alan Jordan, in her home in Accokeek, MD, at the age of 40, on October 25, 2023. She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Mary Louise and Douglas Duck, and Elsie and Joseph Offshanney. She is survived by her three children, Taylor, Samantha, and Jacob Pandolfino, her mother, Joann Offshanney Duck, her father, James William Duck, and sister Kristin Crawford.
She was born Kelly Fallon Duck in Prince George’s County, MD, on August 14, 1983, and grew up in Hanover, MD. She was the oldest daughter of James and Joann and only sibling to her younger sister, Kristin.
As a child, she had endless amounts of fun camping with her family and spending time with her cousins and grandmother, always bringing smiles to everyone’s faces with her energetic antics (and getting in trouble!). She could often be found with her best friend, Alex Stacey Kuehn, who remained a close friend and support for Kelly throughout her life.
Kelly attended Archbishop Spaulding High School in Severn, MD. She married Nicholas Pandolfino in 2005 and they were blessed with their first child, Taylor Nicole, the same year. Samantha Rose and Jacob Gaetano quickly followed in 2008 and 2009.
She worked hard to start a business in later years and had a successful contracting business with her partner Alan, whom she loved for many years.
Kelly was a sassy, brave, and fiercely loving person, who would do anything for her friends and family. She was protective over those she loved, who valued her love and loyalty. Kelly was such an amazing artist with limitless creative talent. She had the heart of a lion, and she felt her emotions deeply. A mother, daughter, sister, and friend, Kelly will be dearly missed by her family from whom she was taken too soon, and who will cherish her memory for all the years to come.
