Rosemary was welcomed into eternal rest by her late husband Raymond and young daughter Alyce Marie on February 10, 2019.
Rosemary was November 25, 1942 in Astoria Queens, New York, the youngest daughter (a fact she loved to tell) of William and Marie (Hunter) Gregorio. After graduating from St. Michael Commercial High School, Brooklyn, NY, she married her childhood sweetheart, Raymond Kennedy. She and Raymond raised five amazing children (even if they do say so themselves). Rosemary worked for many years in the Graphic Design industry and was semi- retired from DeKadt Marketing at the time of her death. Rosemary shared her love of family and zest for life with all who know her. She enjoyed traveling with her beloved sisters and brother-in-law, including fabulous adventures to, Ireland, Greece and the trip of a life to the Wild West and all the National Parks. These last several years, Rosemary enjoyed being a “snow bird” with a pool-side office, where she could enjoy a martini and occasional cigar. Rosemary was always ready for the next adventure, whether it was a hot air balloon ride over Napa Valley, road trip to Ohio or a late night trip to the casino when feeling lucky. She will be greatly missed by her DeKadt Marketing family, Brookfield Lanes Bowling League family and her St. Peter’s and VFW Bingo family.
Rosemary is survived by four children, Bruce Kennedy, Elizabeth (Lisa) Kennedy, Mary Kennedy and Ginny Kennedy all of Danbury; two grandchildren Brandon and Dylan; daughter-in-law Jeanne Kennedy; two sisters: Margaret (Peggy) Mariani and her husband Raymond and Philomena (Phil) Genatempo all of New York. She also leaves many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
