Obituary for Eileen M Kennedy

Eileen Marie Kennedy (née Brody), age 94. Beloved wife of 44 years to the late John (Jack) Kennedy, Jr.; mother of John (Mary), Patricia (deceased), Claire, Robert (Eileen), Thomas, Joan Ianniello (Jeff); grandmother of Nolan and Timothy Kennedy, Annie Kirkpatrick (James), Becky Kennedy; daughter of the late Ellen (née Scanlon) and Michael Brody; aunt and friend of many. Passed away July 18, 2020.

Eileen grew up in the St. Raymond’s Parish of the Bronx. As a young woman she enjoyed working in a retail clothing store in New York where she once modeled a dress for Eleanor Roosevelt. She was proud of her work in a major bank in Manhattan where she worked before marrying Jack, a Navy pilot. His service took them to the Panama Canal Zone for several years, her first big adventure. Her next big and, longest adventure, was being the mother of six children. Over the years, the family lived in Panama, New York, Illinois, Missouri, and New Jersey. She loved English muffins and tea, news radio programs, home decorating, formal gardens and classic Broadway songs.

A funeral Mass will be held at Mary, Mother of God Roman Catholic Church, 157 S. Triangle Road, Hillsborough, NJ at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, July 24, 2020. Internment will be at Cedar Hill Cemetery, East Millstone, NJ. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Eileen’s memory to Mary, Mother of God Church.
