10/17/1928 - 01/02/2021 Anyone who shared in the life of Audrey Rock Kennedy over her 92 years enjoyed her warmth and joy of life. Audrey was born to Edith and Raymond Rock and raised in the 7 th Ward of New Orleans, along with her siblings Raymond, Edith, Doris and Helen. Audrey was a scholar and educator. She graduated from Tuskegee Institute in 3 years, earned a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and taught kindergarten for 37 years.Generations of young children were instilled with her desire to learn. While at Tuskegee, Audrey met Fred Kennedy and they married, moved to LA/San Pedro and raised their family. Fred and Audrey were married until 2014, when Fred passed, marking 66 years of a remarkable and resilient partnership. As mom to Katheryn (Fabian),Michael (Arlene),Roderick and Karen, she was an irreplaceable role model. She shone as a grandmother to Kevin (Remmie), Kim (Chad), MurphiBennett (mom Debrah), Fabian (Whitney), Jackson (mom LaVinda), Alexandra and Morgan (mom LaVinda) showering them with love and attention. Her great grandchild, Roman brightened the last year of her life immensely. Audrey died peacefully at home on January 2, 2021, feeling the love of family, extended family, and friends. A private burial will be held for immediate family. A party to celebrate Audrey's life will be held later this year.
