Donna Fitzpatrick Kennedy Obituary
Donna Fitzpatrick Kennedy, 06/30/1959 - 06/25/2018, daughter of William (Bill) and Shirley (Tucker) Fitzpatrick, went onto her next journey after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Donna grew up in Hoosick Falls NY and most recently lived in Nahant MA. She was the weekend coordinator at The Hope Lodge in Boston and had previously worked at the Women's Clinic in Boston as well as being a former RPCV in the Peace Corps from 2014 -2016, stationed in Swaziland Africa. Donna was a warrior, a friend and true champion of women's causes. She was very close to her Native American roots, respected the earth and left a small footprint. She was wise, generous, selfless and lived her life without prejudice. Donna was a deeply spiritual and wonderful woman who was loved, is missed and will always be cherished. She had so much more living to do.

Donna was mother to two amazing children, Liza (Alex) Gallagher and Nathaniel (Amelia) Hoag and grandmother "G-bird" to six beautiful young people, Kennedy, Shaymus, Maya and Jonah Gallagher and Willa and Opal Hoag. She is predeceased by her parents as well as her two sisters, Claudia Young Mattison and Colleen Begin.

There will be a gathering to celebrate Donna's life with love, laughter and storytelling in the outdoors at her son Nathaniel's home in Sharon MA on Saturday, September 15th from 3-6 PM. Everyone is invited. Rain date, Sunday September 16th. Find updates on the Facebook Event page or contact Liza Gallagher. If anyone would like to make a donation in Donna's honor, please do so to Hope Lodge Center 125 Huntington Ave. Jamaica Plain MA 02130
