Eileen Teresa McKeown Kennedy, 85, of Purchase, NY passed away on July 10, 2020. She was born on June 15, 1935 in Bronx, New York to Bridget Agnes (nee Durkin) and Thomas Joseph McKeown. She married James Anthony Kennedy on September 5, 1959 at St. Raymond’s Roman Catholic Church in Bronx, New York.

Eileen was a member of Westchester Right to Life, a member of Westchester Hills Golf Club, a Good Counsel College alumna (and proud member of the “Glad Plaids”), and a devoted bridge player.

A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Eileen is survived by her husband, James, and her children, James of New York City, Ellen (Scott) Lenzi of Warwick, NY, George (Marianne) Kennedy of Valhalla, NY, and Michael (Erin) Kennedy of Brooklyn Heights, NY; seven grandchildren, Christine (Nicholas), Michelle, Teresa, Jillian, George, Mark, and Michael; and her sister, Catherine Spindler, of Phoenix, Arizona.

An angel gone to God, already in Heaven. Eileen loved, and she was loved. We will miss her terribly but know that she is now at peace.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Westchester Right to Life or Calvary Hospital, ATTN: The Calvary Fund, 1740 Eastchester Rd., Bronx, NY 10461.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 920 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, NY 10605. Arrangements by McMahon, Lyon & Hartnett Funeral Home, White Plains, NY.
