Worcester – Kelley E. Starratt, 52, of Worcester, passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 16, 2016 at UMass Memorial Medical Center, University Campus in Worcester. Kelley leaves her two loving children, Mathew Byron of Santa Monica, Calif. and Lauren Byron of Clinton.
Kelley was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, daughter of the late David W. Starratt Sr., and is survived by her mother, Mary June (Layton) Donovan and her husband Dan of Clinton. She was raised in Hudson, where she attended local schools, and had resided in Worcester the past 15-plus years.
