KENNEDY, Constance (Connie) Vivian (nee Hammill)

February 28, 1931 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
August 29, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Constance (Connie) Vivian Kennedy (nee Hammill), beloved wife of the late Lyle Kennedy of Calgary, AB, passed away on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at the age of 87 years.

Connie worked at the Calgary Tourist and Convention Bureau from September 1985 to March 1995 as a Client Promotions and Servicing Manager. During this time, she booked many conventions and met many people who became an integral part of her life and stayed a huge part of it long after she left the Bureau. It was these connections that brought a sparkle to Connie. Before working at the Bureau, Connie’s focus was running the household and raising her son Gregory, whom she cherished dearly.

Connie had many interests over the years that included gardening, where she would spend countless hours planting, pruning and watering a lush garden, and dinner theatre, where she and Lyle would connect with friends. Above all else, her family, friends and all animals were her main focus and source of her happiness and joy.

Connie is survived by her son Gregory; sister Carol Langlois (Jules Carrier); niece and nephew, Meagan and Mark; extended family; and her Calico cat – Kissa. Although Connie had many cats and dogs over the years, Kissa was her final pet, and provided Connie with endless hours of affection and enjoyment. Connie was predeceased by her husband Lyle Kennedy on June 11, 2018. Lyle and Constance celebrated their fiftieth anniversary in 2017. They were married in Lajord, SK on October 7, 1967. She was also predeceased by both her parents, William Edward Hammill and Sigridur (Phyllis) Felicitas Hammill (nee Halldorson).

A Joint Celebration of Connie and Lyle’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Monday, September 10, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through A special thank you to the dedicated staff at the Rockyview General Hospital who provided great care to Connie and support to the family at the time of her passing.
