Dear Sister Mary Kenneth - May you be resting comfortably with your parents and God. My father misses you dearly and holds fond memories of when you lived on the first floor of Avon Street and he on the second. He always enjoyed hearing updates that I so kindly received from Sister Mary Santos. Rest in peace and one day we shall all see each other again.
Love, Carole Andreotti

I have such fond memories of my 3rd grade class with Sister Kenneth. She was tough but kind. Years later, she visited my grandmother in the nursing home. I always appreciated the time Sister Kenneth spent with my grandmother....and will always appreciate the lessons I learned from her as a child. Rest in peace, Sister Kenneth!
