February 10, 1922 – March 4, 2013
It is both with sadness and peace that we announce the passing of Doris Hazel Kennedy.
Doris was born to William and Bessie Smith of Saint John, New Brunswick on February 10th 1922. Doris was the wife of the late Douglas Walter Kennedy who predeceased her in 2001. Throughout her life Douglas was her true best friend and confident. Predeceasing Doris were her sister Betty Rutherford and brother Laurence Smith.
She leaves behind son Bruce Kennedy and daughter in law Linda of Calgary, Alberta / Blind Bay, British Columbia, granddaughters Stacy Lyn Kennedy of St. Albert, Alberta and Ashley Brooke Kennedy of Calgary, four great grandchildren; Cody, Matthew, Caleb of St. Albert and Brianna Faith of Calgary. She also leaves behind brother in law Blair Kennedy and wife Ann of Fredericton, New Brunswick and many nieces, nephews and cousins in New Brunswick, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Ontario, and British Columbia.
Doris was raised in Saint John and spent the happiest days of her life in New Brunswick. In 1963 Doris and Douglas, by way of a corporate transfer, moved to make Calgary their home.
We can take relief that Doris has passed over and is with those who went before, she is finally at peace. We will miss her but also know she is in a better place.
A private family service will be held at Queens Park Cemetery in Calgary where her ashes will be placed with Douglas’s. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
