Jeanne D. Kennedy

Jeanne D. Kennedy, 90, formerly of Landenberg, deid peacefully on Aug. 3, surrounded by her loving family.  Jeanne leaves behind her five daughters, Edith 'Micki' Weidlein (Philip), Virginia Kennedy, Donna Norris (Lee), Debra Crom (Robert), Peggy Krygier (Kenneth), former daughter-in-law, Judith Fellman, and Skipper's longtime companion, Kathleen O'Brien.

She is also survived by her grandchildren, Cheryl Stewart, Thomas Hogate, Philisa Weidlein-Crist, Krista Taylor, Nichole Kennedy, Brittany Petrucci, John La Forte, Joseph Owens, Julia Nutter, Chase Pickeral, Chad Crom, Stephani Blake, Spencer Crom, Elijah 'Taylor' Crom, 26 great grandchildren and three great great-grandchildren, along with a vast number of nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents, Raymond West and Edith Fowler West formerly of Port Deposit, Md.; her loving husband, Spencer B. Kennedy Jr., her infant daughter, Sharon Lee Kennedy, her son, Spencer B. Kennedy III, "Skipper", infant great grand-daughter, Chelsea Marie Owens; two brothers, Warren and Taylor and three sisters, Grace, Charlotte and Joyce, (Peg)

Jeanne spent her life dedicated to her family and supporting her husband in his naval career. She was a model military wife for 40 years and a true American patriot. Although she did work outside the home throughout the years, she always said her greatest achievement was raising her children. She and Spencer enjoyed vacationing with family. Hawaii and cruising were among their favorite vacations.

Family reunions, vacations at the beach and monthly dinner outings with her daughters and granddaughters are all treasured memories she leaves us with.

Jeanne loved life with a passion unmatched. 'Depressed' or 'bored' were not words in her vocabulary. She was so very proud of her family. She took every occasion she could to let each and everyone know how special they were. Her loving and kind ways touched everyone she came in contact with. She will be terribly missed.

You are invited to visit with Jeanne’s family and friends from 9:30-11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, at Kemblesville United Methodist Church, Route 896 and Peacedale Road. Kemblesville, PA 19347. Her funeral service will follow at 11.  Interment will be in the adjoining cemetery.  Family and friends are invited to a luncheon to celebrate the life of Jeanne at the church hall immediately following funeral services. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the National WWII Museum 945 Magazine Street New Orleans, LA 70130.  Arrangements are by the Cleveland & Grieco Funeral Home Inc.
