Prince Albert attends aunt's funeral


Prince Albert of Monaco and the rest of the Kelly family turned out today at St. Bridget’s Church in East Falls for the funeral Mass of Elizabeth Kelly Le Vine, the woman everyone called “Aunt Lizzie.”

The youngest daughter of Philadelphia power broker John B. Kelly Sr. and sister of Grace Kelly died of cancer Tuesday at 76. “I had to share her with everybody,” said son Chris Le Vine, an investment banker. “She was just a giving person.”

Mrs. Le Vine and her husband, Don, were married at St. Bridget's in 1955.

A memorial has been set up at Religious of the Assumption in West Philadelphia, the order that ran her alma mater, Ravenhill Academy.
