Mrs. Kennedy retired in 1998 as Assistant Librarian at St. Andrew's Priory School. Prior to that, she was the secretary of the elementary at Iolani School. In retirement, she kept very busy volunteering wherever she saw a need and felt she could help. Among her many activities, she was a volunteer at the Holy Nativity Church Thrift Shop. She enjoyed taking care of her plants and had a plot in the Hawaii Kai Community Garden where she grew vegetables giving away the surplus. Her favorite hobby was quilting and she made countless beautiful quilts to give to family and friends and to help raise funds for needy families in the community.
There will not be an immediate Celebration of Life. At her request that will wait until her husband dies and then there will be a joint Celebration of Life at St. Andrew's Cathedral.
Also, at her request, she wanted to invite memorial contributions to be made to the Anna Marie and David Kennedy Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. Andrew's Priory School. The purpose of the fund will be to assist students whose families are in need of financial aid to enable their children to attend the school.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
