Obituary

Her Legacy… Mary Patricia (Novak) Kennedy, 61, passed away on June 13, 2022.  She was born on February 10, 1961, in Dearborn, Michigan to Richard Anthony Novak and Mary (Rodger) Novak. Mary married the love of her life, Robert, on May 10, 1986, in Saginaw, Michigan. She will be remembered as a faithful Catholic, a committed home-schooling mother, a loving wife, a wise woman with sage advice, and a loyal friend.  Her face most often radiated a smile that spoke of her positive and upbeat attitude and commitment to care, while inspiring many. Mary’s ears were poised to listen, her taste buds led her toward good food, and the fire within had her engaged in many a good argument. She loved shopping, heading out on a coffee run, and spending time with her family.

Her Family… Mary will be missed by her husband Robert; her children, Paul (Jennifer), Mary Grace, Sean, and Elizabeth; siblings: Richard (Mary Lynn), Jeffery, Thomas (Kerry), and Matthew (Kathy); grandchildren Lilly, Liam, and Olivia Kennedy. She is preceded in death by her mother Mary Helen Novak, father Richard Anthony Novak, and sister Cynthia (Novak) Herzog.

Her Farewell… Mary’s Community Farewell will be on Friday, June 17, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. (9:30-10:30 a.m. public gathering) for her Mass of Christian Burial at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Brighton, Michigan.  Father Mathias Thelen will serve as celebrant. Memorial contributions are suggested to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Brighton, Michigan. Please leave a message of comfort for Mary’s family at 1-877-231-7900, or sign her guestbook at www.borekjennings.com.
