Obituary for Catherine E. Kennedy

Scarborough Maine
Catherine E. Kennedy peacefully passed away on her 89th birthday, November 29th 2018.
Cathy (a.k.a. “Catherine Eileen the Lovely”) was born in Worcester MA on November 29th 1929 the daughter and only child of Daniel F. and Ann (Kean) Kennedy. She attended Worcester schools graduating from North High School and the State College at Framingham in 1951.
She taught home economics in New Britain CT and also for 35 years at Tantasqua Regional Junior and Senior High Schools in Sturbridge. She was active in the Southbridge chapter of Literacy Volunteers for 15 years.
When she retired in 1989, she moved from Southbridge MA to her cherished beach cottage at Higgins Beach in Scarborough Maine. Her many friends will remember laughter and happy hours on her porch, sunny days on the beach, and lobsters steamed in her tiny kitchen. Cathy served as a Eucharistic Minister at St. Maximilian Kolbe church. She loved to travel and took several trips to explore the U.S. and Europe in her retirement. Always interested in learning she continued her education through a wide array of subjects offered by Maine Senior College. She was a great story-teller, very proud of her Irish heritage and told her best stories speaking with a very convincing Irish brogue. Most of all Cathy loved music and theatre and enjoyed supporting both throughout her life.
Cathy received attentive and loving care from the Pine Point Nursing Home staff and Compassus hospice.
At her request, there will not be calling hours. Following cremation by Direct Cremation of Maine, a private burial will take place. Interment will be at Sacred Heart Cemetery in West Brookfield Massachusetts.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may made in her name to Tantasqua Education Association Scholarship Attention: Deb Blom Guidance Department Tantasqua Regional High School 319 Brookfield Road Fiskdale, MA 01518 or Literacy Volunteers of Southbridge MA or Portland ME.
