Dorothy Mae Kennedy, 85

Dorothy Mae Kennedy, 85 Dorothy Mae Kennedy (nee Moore) of Cedarburg went to her heavenly home on Feb. 17, 2016, at the age of 85.

Dorothy was a friend and teacher to all. She had a quick sense of humor, was fiercely loyal, a great listener who never judged and considered her family to be her greatest accomplishment. Dorothy was born in Shullsburg on Aug. 15, 1930, the daughter of the late Charles Arnold and Olive (nee Tiffany) Moore.

She grew up in Shullsburg, where she met and married the love of her life, Frank Kennedy, in 1953. They raised their three children, Mark, Kevin and Denise, here in Cedarburg, where she taught at St. Francis Borgia School for many years.

Dorothy was an avid golfer and member at West Bend Country Club, where she and Frank shared good times golfing with their friends. She enjoyed traveling with Frank, and together they explored Ireland, Australia and the United States. Her later years were devoted to caring for Frank as he battled Alzheimer’s disease. She took enormous pride in her children and their accomplishments, and in her nine grandchildren, Daniel, Kelly, Ryan, Meghann, Andrew and Christina Kennedy; and Conor, Kevin and Sean Moakley. Dorothy will be missed by all who knew her.

She brought much joy into many lives and her memory will continue to be a role model to all who knew her.
