Retta Marie (Pike) Kennedy Obituary
Retta Marie (Pike) Kennedy, 58, of Longmont, CO, passed away surrounded by family & friends on Tuesday, July 24th, 2018. She was born Nov. 22nd, 1959 in Buffalo, NY & grew up around Crawfordsville, IN, before relocating to CO in 1980. Retta lived her entire life with the driving force of a magnanimous caregiver, most recently for her longtime neighbor. Her impassioned motivation & supreme devotion was just one of the many facets that make Retta so compellingly loved. She loved her plants & flowers & you could always find her in her backyard, tending to something. Retta was incredibly creative & a very crafty woman, she was an avid crocheter & her sewing machine was constantly in use, her denim blankets in particular were highly requested. Retta's friends & family were of the upmost importance to her, she truly thrived when she was with them all & they will all cherish each & every one of the wonderfully special moments & memories she bestowed upon them. Retta is preceded in death by her father Bob Ault Pike & her brother Frank. She is survived by her husband John Kennedy, her sons Jason, John & James, her grandchildren, Kyra, Kayden, Savannah, Jayme & John Jr., her mother Brenda Ellis, her brothers John Paul, Rob & Steve, her sister Angie, countless family in Indiana & a ton of loving friends from Oregon to England. Retta's laugh, unique view on life & her warm & genuineness will be sadly missed, although eternally woven into the fabric of her many loved one's hearts.
