Barbara was an avid reader and enjoyed knitting. She loved spending time with her family and spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Barbara adored her children and believed she was lucky to have the opportunity to stay home to raise them. Once they were all in school, she made herself busy by working at K-mart, Cleantown, the Boy Scouts of America and in the Cayuga County Legislature Office.

Barbara was a member of Saint Mary's Church and looked forward to attending Mass each Sunday and then brunch with her sister, Norma.

Barbara was predeceased by her husband, Paul F. Kennedy in 1998, and her grandson, Mathew Ryan Kennedy in 2008.

She is survived by her five children: Paul M. Kennedy (Anita), Michael A. Kennedy, Kimberly I. DeMaio-Roberts (Richard), Bruce H. Kennedy, and Bridget E. Kennedy (Alicia); three sisters: Norma West, Myrna Wishart, and Donna Krueger; 18 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; two great-great granddaughters; numerous nieces and nephews and Sherry Kelsey, one of the countless number of kids she treated as her own over the years.

We remember aunt Barbara especially for the kindness and patience she offered our mother as she was aging and often alone. Barbara went out of her way to make regular visits and to listen and to find something to make our mom smile - not always an easy task. Barbara always seem to have a positive attitude and a very generous spirit. She raised a family and participated in her community, and made the best of what life offered and didn't seem to complain. She will be missed by many.
