Not sure what to say?

This site asks for my relationship to the deceased so I put "student" because I was always learning something good from Joe. So sorry for your loss - my experiences of Joe during TEC weekends were always sweet, inspired and full of faith. Eternal rest grant unto him!

Peace and love to all the Kenneys! Many good memories of the WHOOF!!! I have been missing his fatherly presence over the years!! He treasured his faith and loved helping others discover and enrich theirs! Peace to all!

Good man Joe - both he and Sue brought a lot of gifts to Saint Joseph the Worker in Maple Grove. Wishing Sue and family God’s peace until your memories bring you more tears of joy than sadness. I’m hoping he and Steve are catching up. So sorry I just heard so didn’t get to celebrate in spirit with you a life well lived.

My first deacon! Thee was no one like Joe Kenney. His sense of humor, his
attention to detail, his strong faith. I enjoyed working with him with the Deacon Council and traveling with him and you Sue to all the regional and national conventions. Sue, you and your family are in my deepest
prayers. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam!
