That's a hard 41.
Chris October 01, 2012 at 11:49 PM
Are you sure about the age being 41 and not 61?

Misprint? DOB was 1941?

Actually, no.... I went to school with her and this is very sad.. Instead of bustin on her we should be praying for her. I will
B John October 02, 2012 at 01:52 AM
If she stole 1500 for food for her family than we can pray.
Lynn Gerie October 02, 2012 at 11:59 PM
Her last name is Hanratty. I don't know why she keeps the Marks' last name when she's estranged from them all- even her kids!
Lynn Gerie October 03, 2012 at 12:07 AM
I would agree to pray for her if she really was stealing food for her kids but her ex-husband has had custody of her 1st four kids for 10 years now. Her sister was nice enough to adopt her 5th kid that she had with a married man and her 6th kid was taken away by the state. Sooo- you figure it out! So sad what people let happen to themselves!

What part of stealing is legal?
Jerry Rosen October 03, 2012 at 08:24 PM
Even the most evil people I know contibute something to this world. Some have at least one someone that needs them. Or they have a boss or business that they serve. Or they paint pretty pictures or they write entertainig stories etc. etc. This women does nothing except cause pain, spread chaos and poison everybody she comes in contact with.
Pat October 03, 2012 at 09:17 PM
She apparently has touched many people's lives.
Lynn Gerie October 03, 2012 at 10:17 PM
Yes, unfortunately Pat- the only good thing that came from her are her kids. If she just could've "touch(ed)" them in some positive way! Just incredibly disappointing.
George Dora October 04, 2012 at 02:45 PM
Lynn - Just a couple of comments. - Disapointing is too mild a word. - As you appear to know her as well as I do, not " touching" the first 4 children at all would have been much better for the kids. If you are a Mom or know or remember your Mom you know exactly what I am saying. - I blame the courts. It took 5 years of the father fighting and spending money for the first 4. - I personally know the sister that was kind enough to adopt the 5th. This child is almost guarenteed to grow up to be a fine man. - And the 6th is certainly better off no matter where he is. - A few months ago she actually tried to get the 2 youngest of the first 4 back, - She showed uo in court handcuffed in an orange jumpsuit!

I have known Kelly, her EX-Husband and her (first) 4 children for a very long time. After she was divorced she was set up very very nice and had her kids still. As always Kelly had put herself in a horrible spot...and left the father with NO other choice than to but his children in a better place...which was with him. At this time I feel very bad that Kelly had to get to this point BUT I feel much worse for the kids involved in this mess...it's just not fair to them!!!!
Lynn Gerie October 04, 2012 at 06:03 PM
George and Done- We obviously know each other and you are both 100% right. I am sick of the kids having to be embarrassed of their mother. I have seen the kids disappointed in Kelly WAY too many times in the past 19 years and it breaks my heart again and again! I'm just glad other people know the real deal as well! And George- I thought that was great she was in that orange jumpsuit! Nothing ceases to amazing me anymore with that woman! My reply about being touched by her was to Pat- just wanted him/her to know she hasn't touched anyone's life in a positive way- not even her kids! You're absolutely right they would've been better off not knowing her at all! How many kids can you lose before you stop!?!
Thomas October 05, 2012 at 08:07 PM
This is very sad for the children. I just hope that they dont see this I have a feeling they have enough on their plate.
Sandy McDandy October 06, 2012 at 03:34 PM
But I commend her in taking him.
Thomas October 06, 2012 at 04:06 PM
Is that really necessary I dont know these people but these kids dont need to read what you think of their family.This is a public forum that is forever so in 10 years when these kids google their name they might come up with this.
Lynn Gerie October 06, 2012 at 11:46 PM
I agree with Thomas- for the kids sake! McDandy, you obviously know the Hanratty family and as much as I wish the kids had a different mother They aren't ALL white trash.
Sandy McDandy October 07, 2012 at 12:16 AM
I was speaking of the Hanratty herd, not Seth' kids. Duh.
Reality Check October 07, 2012 at 01:27 AM
You go Sandy!!! Anyone who truly knew Kelly, knows that at one time she was a beautiful radiant young woman. Sandy is right, Kelly's mother and sister were so dysfunctional and toxic that the youngest sister opted to live with Kelly and Seth. Kelly took her in without question. So what she was set up nice after the divorce, that doesn't erase the mental, emotional, and verbal torture she endured in her life. I'm sorry for Seth and the kids, but Kelly is the result of disgusting abuse, and Seth knows that. Not to say what he and the kids went through is ok, it's not, it's awful and painful, but may e to shed some light as to why Kelly is the way she is today.
An old friend October 08, 2012 at 03:19 PM
A women with four kids.....everyone should mind their own business and hope that they can all go on with peace.fyi,she was a great girl, simply dating a fun guy.They had a family and things went sour...Just maybe she couldn't cope with these life changes and things went really bad....The bottom line she has CHILDREN, even if she is not raising them, they still see all of your comments about THEIR mother, they don't need to read anymore bullshit from all of you...go on with your own lives,obviously extremely judgmental, and let these children and their NEW family live their lives with peace and comfort(with their dad and his new family).....They already hear the horrible stories and live with them, they don't need more......Everybody needs to worry about their own selves and leave the rest of the world alone....Do you know where your children are?????TRY AND HAVE A BETTER LIFE....LEAVE THIS FAMILY ALONE...JUST SAYING!!
Lynn Gerie October 10, 2012 at 12:40 AM
Lynn Gerie October 10, 2012 at 12:48 AM
yeah old friend- all that fun guy wanted was a family and to be close and to cuddle with his wife at the time. But Kelly unfortunately found that elsewhere and messed things up for herself. I do agree for the kids sake not to post some things. And by some peoples remarks you could tell that not all of you know the real story. Unfortunately, the first 4 kids know everything already and are already affected by it and have been for a long time now. So i say we stop going back and forth now for the sake of the 5th kid so he doesn't see TOO much when he's old enough to google all this B.S. Take care to all- I will not be commenting or reading any comments anymore- too upsetting being so close to the fam. Peace to all
Lynn Gerie October 10, 2012 at 12:59 AM
Anyone who knows Kelly, knows this and this is also why it's so disappointing- because she was a great mother for the first few years. But the devious things she has done to people- including her own sisters, kids, family and friends has unfortunately ruined EVERY relationship in her life! And I really mean every! I do understand that some of this is a result of her childhood but I know people that have been through WAY more but have taken the right steps to help themselves.
Lynn Gerie October 10, 2012 at 01:03 AM
okay one last comment- Kelly isn't as dumb as you think. She might've done this on purpose so she could at least have a warm place to stay and some food in her mouth without having to beg on the streets. This may be a blessing in disguise for her.
CarKing January 21, 2014 at 10:37 AM
Rockland county people are all the same and awlays will be......cant mind their own business.......does anyone care to understand these kids are human and of course will get back to them....you insecure people should be ashamed of yourselves. .....No matter what shes still a human...and REMEMBER EVE that Bitch in the Garden...SHE sinned ....she was a WOMEN..and so is Kelly.

CarKing January 21, 2014 at 10:52 AM
