Obituary Notice

A Daisy seed was planted and with God’s guidance she grew to share her beauty for all to enjoy.
Daisy R. Kennedy passed away at the age of 91, at her home in Hale, Michigan, on March 10, 2019. Her daughter, Jackie, with the help of family, tended her every need through hospice and was by her side when Daisy closed her eyes in death.
Daisy was born April 12, 1927 in Ottumwa, Iowa, the proud daughter of Mary and Cecil.
Daisy will be especially remembered for her utmost, unconditional love for her children, Jackie, Bill and Terry. The strength of her convictions in life were not to be disputed.
She loved and respected all aspects of nature as she took care of all God’s “critters” great and small. Nature was abound each year in her showcase flower gardens surrounding her home.
Her exquisite talents in arts and crafts were immeasurable. Her crafty inventions and flower arrangements were forever on display in her home and those of friends, and each year at the Ogemaw County Fair. Her creations, year after year, since 1981, were rewarded with many blue ribbons and/or best of show. Daisy’s last entries at the fair concluded at the age of 90.
Daisy’s love and compassion for life itself made her a human being worthy of all the love that surrounded her.
Daisy’ was preceded in death by parents, Mary and Cecil, husbands William, George and Robert, sons Bill and Terry, sisters, Marge and Liz, brother Jim, and many dear friends.
She is survived by her daughter Jackie, sister-in-law Carol, sister Betty, niece Kim (Tony) and many cherished nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A special thank you to Carol, Michael, Cindy, Charmaine, Don and Melody, Bill and Valerie, Brenda and Raymond for your past and continued love, caring and support.
May God bless each and everyone, who was an integral part of Daisy’s life.
Love You Mom
There will be a memorial service to celebrate Daisy’s life, in August, during the time of the Ogemaw County Fair.

My sincere condolences with the loss of your Mother, Daisy.
Charmaine told me this morning. I had been aware of her health however I wasn’t aware of her passing.
You have been one wonderful daughter to your mother. I have heard how you have taken great care of her all these years.
I am glad I got to know you a bit when you were here. You have many wonderful gifts and caring for others was well shown in your love for your mother.
God bless you during this time. Losing one’s loved one leaves a big hole. Thankfully you have a great friend in Charmaine.
Hopefully someday we will meet again.
