Dolores Kostrub Kennedy passed away peacefully on July 18, 2023 with family at her side. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She felt blessed to have lived a good life and will be greatly missed.
Dolores was born on March 5, 1931 in Warren, Ohio, the youngest of seven children to parents John and Mary Kostrub. She was a graduate of Newton Falls High School (1949) and went on to marry her high school sweetheart Edward Kennedy in 1951.
Following Ed’s military service the couple settled in Newton Falls where they raised four children in a loving household. Dolores was a homemaker who later went on to work at Packard Electric and after leaving that job worked until her retirement as a secretary at St Mary & Joseph Catholic Church where she was also a parishioner.
Dolores enjoyed flower gardening, swimming, snow skiing, and traveling within the United States as well as around the world. She was also an avid fan of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Her joy for life will carry on in the many memories she created with family and friends.
Dolores is survived by her son David Kennedy, Newton Falls, daughter Cathleen Desicy, Warren, daughter Corinne Kennedy Newton Falls and son Matthew Kennedy (Peggy) Atlanta GA, grandchildren Valerie (Ryan) Short, Patrick (Hilary) Kennedy, Kyley (Perry) Protis, and Taylor Kennedy, great grandchildren Delaney, Caden, Declan, Raelyn, Grady, and Tate and great great grandchild Karson.
