Jeanne Wagstaff Kenealy, aged 101, of Farmington, CT, formerly of Stamford, passed away peacefully on December 6, 2023, with her family beside her. She was the widow of Matthew H. Kenealy, Jr., to whom she was married for 63 years. Jeanne was born on August 21, 1922, the daughter of the late George and Jane (Mertz) Wagstaff. Jeanne was a medical secretary prior to staying home to raise her children. She later returned to work as a secretary for the Stamford Adult Education Department. She was a long-time parishioner of St. John’s Episcopal Church where she often volunteered, and especially enjoyed doing the flowers for the altar. She loved sailing with her family, bowling, and also was an active member of the Hubbard Heights Garden Club. In her later years she spent many hours sitting at the beach and just enjoying the sunshine, the view, and chatting with friends and acquaintances she would see there.
Jeanne is survived by her daughters, Barbara Rockwell and her husband Thomas (deceased) of Terryville, Ct., and Susan Kearney and her husband James, of Plainville, CT. She is also survived by her daughter-in-law Cynthia (Johnson) Kenealy of State College, PA. She was predeceased by her son Matthew, her sister Evelyn (Wagstaff) Fish, and her brother G. Albert Wagstaff. The special joys of her life were her seven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be private. Memorial donations can be made to St. John’s Episcopal Church of Stamford, CT. Scott Funeral Home, 169 Main St, Terryville is assisting with the arrangements. www.scottfuneralhomeinc.com
