Obituary

Judith Elizabeth Kennedy
1944-2020

Judith Elizabeth Kennedy (nee Snow) was born July 17, 1944 in Millertown Junction. “Judy” passed peacefully away at Brookfield Hospital in New-Wes-Valley, NL April 29, 2020 after a lengthy illness. She is predeceased by her parents Cyril and Annette Snow of Millertown Junction.

Judy leaves to mourn her husband of 55 years Joseph, sons John (Jeannette), Jim (Alissa), daughter Jane (Piotr), her precious Grandsons Mackenzie and Liam and Step Grandchildren Nathan, Nolan, Kiera, Hunter, and Hudson. She also leaves to mourn her brothers Reginald (Elfrieda and children Annette, Ian and families) and Alec (Anita and children Darren, Shannon and families) as well as her cousin Jane (Max and children Christina, Heather and families). In addition, Judy leaves to mourn a large circle of extended family and friends.

Judy was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who loved spending as much time as she could at her cabin at West Pond, by South Brook, NL. Once well known for cake decorating and dress making, Judy always had a steady stream of people visiting her at her home. She was passionate about many things including the Royal Canadian Legion, where she was a Life Member as well as the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Rebekahs. Judy was attached to “B” Company, Royal Newfoundland Regiment as an Acting Sargent with the CWAC’s (Canadian Women’s Army Corps) for 7 years in the 60’s before leaving to start a family. With a love for games, Judy was always ready for a friendly hand of cards, board games and games on her iPad.

As a Brownie Leader, when her daughter Jane was younger, Judy garnered quite the reputation for having a love of children. She would always love to see children coming and going at her home. This continued as her children grew, whether John’s Army Cadet friends, Jim’s hockey friends or Jane’s Girl Guides Friends, their school friends and especially the neighbourhood kids, she quickly became known as a second mother to them all. She welcomed them all with open arms with many practically living at our home (Donna and Karen).

Judy loved her family, especially her grandchildren. Besides her family, her love also extended to any pets who may have been in her presence. She had an open door policy for all pets, whether family pets or pets of friends, at home and at her cabin and always had a secret stash of treats to give away.

The family would like to thank the staff of Central Newfoundland Health Center, Grand Falls Windsor and the staff at Brookfield Hospital in New-Wes-Valley for their professional, but compassionate care of her during her illness. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

Due to Covid-19, there will be no visitation or service. A Funeral Service and Burial will be announced at a later date.

Judy was my cousin by marriage to Joe, my first cousin, but since my first of many years of summer trips to GFW starting when I was about 12, (I'm 63 now), Judy was a more of a mother than a relative. The memories are endless, even up to when I visited with my own children, spending time at the West Pond cabin with Joe and Judy. You shared love and joy with so many people in your life. Rest peacefully, always missed and fondly remembered.

To Joe and family. We were so sad to hear of Judith's passing. She was a constant pleasure to be around. She will be missed dearly by her Legion family and leaves a void in our organization that will be very difficult to fill.

We first met Judy at a Provincial Executive Committee Meeting in St. John's. She was a take charge person and made sure everything was arranged to take care of the Spouses while the meetings were in progress. We had some really good times together. So sorry for your loss, she will be greatly missed.

Judy and her family, Joe, John, Jim and Jane (the 5 J's ) were friends of our family for 46 years. We had many parties at each other's homes over the years and went on many excursions together, especially for boil ups in the woods and at each others cabins. We shared so many laughs together and music was an integral part of our gatherings. Judy loved it when we sang at these gatherings and was especially proud of Joe when he played either the piano, guitar, mandolin or accordion. She was also a strong supporter of the royal family, especially the Queen, and would defend her against any non supporters. We had a great many discussions in that regard.Throughout the years we played games, especially cards, and went on many mummering excursions together. She treated our children and later, grand children as her own and all were especially fond of her. We will miss her dearly. we offer our sincere condolences to all the family. We live with fond memories and she will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Ed and Nellie Power.
