|Birth: ||Jun. 10, 1979|
|Death: ||Oct. 28, 2009|
Age 30, of Newark, died October 28, surrounded by her loving family.
Mary Beth was born in Wilmington, where she began a life-long battle against an illness which caused major heart defects and an array of other serious health issues. She attended Hodson VoTech High School before transferring to First State School where she graduated in 1998. She had an unbelievably strong will to survive and surprised many in the medical community with her ability to do so, against all odds. Her greatest joy was her son David, the light of her life, born in December 2006. She possessed amazing strength, courage and a tremendous faith in God but the most remarkable thing about Mary Beth was her compassion for others. She is loved by so many and is an inspiration to all who knew her. She will be missed terribly.
She is survived by her mother, Pam Kenney (Joyce Pedrick), her partner Raffie Veloz and their son, David; her sister, Christine Doyle (Earl); brother, John (Darlin Abraham); niece, Mary Doyle, nephews Delayne and Stephen Doyle; grandmother, Calysta Hitchens; grandfather, Ralph Justice (Marty); uncles Lawson Justice, Kevin Justice (Judy), and Stephen Kenney (Renee); aunts, Peggy Fetters (Brian) and Renee Whitt (Mark); and many cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Kenney.
Friends and family are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 am Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at Church of the Holy Child, 2500 Naamans Rd., Wilmington, where friends may call after 10:00am. Interment will follow Mass in Cathedral Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to a trust fund for David. Checks should be made payable to David Veloz Kenney and can be sent in care of Joyce Pedrick, 91 Hollybrooke Drive, Langhorne, PA 19047.
