Barby Kelly: tragic reason for her withdrawal from the limelight - but the family stayed with her

The fight she fought in silence didn't seem to get any easier over the years, in 2013 her brother Jimmy Kelly spoke publicly about his sister's mental illness and her withdrawal: “I want to inform you that Barby has had a mental illness for many years that makes it impossible for her to live alone, to take care of herself, or to take responsibility for her own life. She has to be under constant supervision, ”he said on Facebook at the time. Public observation would worsen the situation, so Barby Kelly is no longer in the limelight like some of her siblings. The contact to her large family remained over the years, Barbara Ann, known as Barby, could still be heard during one or two song recordings.

Now the member of the Kelly Family died at the age of 45.

Maite Kelly *, a few years younger sister, also posted a grief post on her Instagram account.

Under a child's photo of the two, she wrote: "Mama Barbara and Papa Dan hold you tight in their arms ... You are now at home." The musical family's fan base shows their sympathy in large numbers on social media.
