Obituary for Merideth A. Kennedy

PALMYRA-Merideth A. Kennedy, 74, died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Sunday, October 13, 2019, at her home in Palmyra.

She was born on May 6, 1945, in Detroit, Maine, the daughter of Clifford and Norma (Boston) Temple. She married the love of her life, Larry Kennedy, when she was 16 and they celebrated 59 years together.

Merideth was a firecracker! She had a great sense of humor and made her mark wherever she went. She loved being with her family and those that knew her lovingly called her Mim. She was a wonderful cook, always making delicious meals. She enjoyed making crafts, painting, gardening, and working alongside her husband doing woodworking.

Merideth was a wonderful seamstress. She would make hunting clothes for her sons, prom dresses for her grandchildren and Halloween costumes for the family. She loved dressing up to scare the kids during the Halloween season! She loved her nightly sweets and eating her spoon of peanut butter and marshmallow right out of the jar.

She is survived by her loving husband, Larry Kennedy of Palmyra; sons: Mark Kennedy and wife Martha of Palmyra, Larry Kennedy and wife Patty of Detroit, and Rick Kennedy and companion Ellen Reny of Detroit; grandchildren: Tawnya Booth and husband John of Palmyra, Kelly Nickerson and fiancé Joe Chambers of Detroit, Jennifer Paquet and husband Kevin of Burnham, Mandy Kennedy and companion Josh Nugent of Detroit, Jordan Kennedy and companion Nick Perry of Hartland, and Benjamin Kennedy of Detroit; great grandchildren: Teran Booth, Jacob Booth, Natalie Nickerson, Hailey Nickerson, Carter Kennedy and Danica Duplisea; several nieces and nephews; and her loving dogs, Puppy and Brooklyn.

She was predeceased by her parents; and her two brothers, Don Temple and Clifton Temple.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the Detroit Night Drifters Snowmobile Club, 98 Troy Road, Detroit.
