Kelle L. Grandjean, 50, of Watertown passed away Thursday afternoon, January 23,2020, at Samaritan Medical Center after brief illness.
Kelle was born on November 20,1969 in Watertown, the daughter of the late Donald and Catherine (Strader) Haynes. She graduated from Sackets Harbor Central School in 1987 and attended Jefferson Community College for a short time. She entered the United States Army in 1987 and was honorably discharged in 1995.
She then married Ron Grandjean and lived in Henderson Harbor, NY. The marriage ended in divorce. She then moved to Watertown, working for several retail stores, including Michaels and Home Depot. She also worked at the Dragon Fly Stamp Store in Adams, NY, before having to retire due to declining health.
She was a very artistic person and enjoyed crafting, especially paper crafts. She loved to teach classes and share her knowledge of crafting, often getting together for dinner parties with her crafting club. She was also known for her many beautiful flower gardens.
Kelle was also known for her “crooked” smile and her father often referred to her with a pet nickname of “Buzzed Fuzz”.
Kelle is survived by her boyfriend of five years, Mark Sutherland, Three Mike Bay; four sisters: Karen (David) Nellis, Sackets Harbor; Kathy (Doug) Schwalm, Pulaski; Karol Haynes, Watertown; and Kezia (Steve) Sullivan, Sackets Harbor; several cousins; and many nieces and nephews.
