Grace Marlyn Fox Kennedy, 92, a lifelong resident of Mount Morris, Pa., born Nov. 10, 1930, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.
She was a loving wife and later the caregiver to her childhood sweetheart, Ralph Walls Kennedy, whom she married Dec. 24, 1948. He died May 18, 2020.
She was a loving daughter and caregiver to her parents, the late James Frederick “Fred” Fox and Lois Marie Core Fox, also loving sister to the late Rev. Robert “Bob” Glen Fox.
She is survived by her five children, Lois Garrison of Mount Morris, Pa., Joyce and husband Henry Clark of Mount Morris, Pa., Robert and wife Tammy Kennedy of Mount Morris, Pa., James and wife Robin Kennedy of Perry, Mich., Leah and husband Charles Nutter of Mount Morris, Pa.; 12 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.
She was employed by West Virginia University for 20 years as a campus service worker, retiring in 1996.
She spent countless hours working on jigsaw puzzles.
Having overcome the hardship of losing her home to a car crash prior to Ralph’s passing, she took pleasure in walking, visiting friends and sharing Jesus with everyone she met. Marlyn’s heart was to help those in need and little children who were less fortunate and in need of love.
Mrs. Kennedy was a faithful member of Mount Morris Gospel Tabernacle for 66 years.
Marlyn was carried to her final resting place by her grandsons.
