The 54-year-old mother-of-two was the wife of the Rev Trevor Kelly, curate of the Church of Ireland parish of Drummaul, Duneane & Ballyscullion, which is in the Diocese of Connor.

The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, said: “Aurelia was much loved by her family and by the parish families in Connor diocese where she lived and served.

“She was a lady who made a wonderful contribution to the lives of those around her.

“On behalf of all of us in Connor diocese, I express our love and sympathy to Trevor, their children Andrew and Rebecca and to Aurelia’s parents.

“Please continue to hold the whole family in your prayers at this difficult time.

“May they know the hope and comfort of Christ as they grieve.

“The eternal God is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms [Deuteronomy 33:27].”

Police said Mrs Kelly died at the scene of an incident which involved a car and a lorry at around 2.50pm on Thursday afternoon on the Frosses Road in Ballymoney.
