Elizabeth B. (Hewitt) Kennedy, of South Easton, formerly of Brockton, Nebraska, and Concord, died at age 84 surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston on Sunday, February 9, 2020, following a lengthy illness.
Born in Concord on August 13, 1935, she was the beloved daughter of the late Clarence and Estelle (Lasure) Hewitt. Raised and educated in Concord, Liz subsequently pursued her Nursing Degree from Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain.
A passionate Registered Nurse for her entire career, caring for patients and people was her true pride and joy. Early on in her proud career, she became the youngest Director of Nursing at Chelsea Hospital and later Director of Nursing at Midlands Hospital in Nebraska. Holding various nursing positions throughout her 50+ years as a nurse, she ended her career at Brockton Multi-Service and the Lincoln Alternative School in Brockton. She was also an active member of the Massachusetts Nursing Association.
She will be fondly remembered for her love of the beach and any chance to grab some sunshine. She loved traveling to warm destinations, taking trips to the casino, and spending time with her many wonderful friends. Her pets meant the world to her and she treasured each one of them, especially her late cat, Max. Creating memories with her children and grandchildren was the highlight of her life.
Her life and memory will be cherished by her daughter, Pamela Flaherty of Stoughton, her son, Scott Kennedy and his wife Beth of Raynham, her grandchildren, Thomas, Sean, Justin, Joseph, Katelyn, Brendan, and Christopher, and a great grandson, Thomas, who is on the way. Two brothers, Richard and Donald Hewitt, predeceased her.
