KENNEDY--Mary Richardson. The boards, staff, and members of Riverkeeper and Waterkeeper Alliance mourn the passing of Mary Richardson Kennedy. We honor and thank Mary for her generous spirit and for her tireless work on behalf of our organizations and our planet. Mary was a deeply caring soul who inspired those around her to give back and play a leadership role in advocating for healthier communities. She used her masterful architectural skills to advance the field of green design, always looking to create a more sustainable world for this and future generations. We will always remember Mary with love and gratitude, and we send our heartfelt sympathy and support to her family at this sad time.
