Marjorie S. Kennelly, 76,

 

Marjorie S. Kennelly, 76, of Meadow Drive, Queensbury, passed away peacefully Thursday evening, Aug. 27, 2009, at Glens Falls Hospital following a short illness.

 

Born on March 10, 1933, in Maplewood, N.J., she was the daughter of the late J. Stanley and Genevieve (Johnston) Brown.

In 1953, Marge graduated from Green Mountain Junior College in Poultney, Vt.

She married Patrick E. Kennelly on Oct. 18, 1958. They lived in East Hanover, N.J., until moving to Granville in 1973, and finally to Queensbury in 1994.

Marge worked at Granville High School from 1974 to 1981 as a study hall monitor and teacher’s aide and at Great Meadow Correctional Facility from 1981 to 1995.

She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, always putting her family before herself. She was happiest when she was spending time with her family, and also at Nubble Lighthouse in Maine.

Besides her parents, two brothers, who both passed away in 1984, Joseph S. Brown of Maplewood, N.J., and Raymond E. Brown of Granville, predeceased Marge.

Survivors include her loving husband of 50 years, Patrick E. Kennelly; one daughter, Mary Beth Kennelly, and one granddaughter, Nora Elizabeth Kennelly, all of Queensbury; a very special nephew, Tim Brown, also of Queensbury; also several nieces, nephews, dear friends, and her faithful dog, Abby Rose, whom she lovingly called “Pudder.”

Calling hours were held Monday, Aug. 31, at the Maynard D. Baker Funeral Home, 11 Lafayette St., Queensbury.

The funeral service was held Tuesday, Sept. 1, at the funeral home, with the Rev. Paul Wagner, pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Queensbury, officiating.  Burial followed at Bay Street Cemetery, Bay Street, Glens Falls.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation, in loving memory of Marge, to Glens Falls Medical Mission, P. O. Box 627, Glens Falls, N.Y. 12801, medical services to Guatemala, where her granddaughter was adopted from, or to SPCA of Upstate New York.

Condolences may be mailed to Maynard D. Baker Funeral Home, 11 Lafayette St., Queensbury, N.Y. 12804, or e-mailed through www.bakerfuneralhome.com.
