Clara Chapman Kenny, 91, departed on Saturday, March 18, 2017 in Scarsdale, N.Y. after a valiant struggle. Born in 1925 in Society Hill, S.C., she married Michael Kenny in July, 1950 in Washington, D.C. Her husband of 68 years died in 2008. She is survived by sons Michael Kenny and his wife Carol Ann of Cortland Manor, NY, Dennis Kenny of Yonkers, NY, Kevin Kenny and his wife Michelle of Montrose, CA, and John Kenny and his wife Laurie of Palm Coast, FL, daughters Mary Kenny of Willimantic, CT, Susan Kenny of Surfside Beach, S.C., and Patricia Kenny and her husband Michael of Oradell, NJ, 19 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Clara was a generous and gracious mother, wife, and confidant. She was always grateful to have been granted so much time on this earth, and lived her last years with a vigor that was unprecedented. Despite her struggles with her health, she rallied on, and often encouraged others to just ‘get on with life’ as well. She was an unending source of love and strength and perseverance despite numerous challenges thrown at her in life. Clara leaves a hole that cannot be filled. She may have said farewell to this world, but we have no doubt that Clara carries all her beauty, gifts, and generosity into the next life. A wake will be held on Thursday, March 23 from 4-7 pm at the Lloyd Maxcy Funeral Home (16 Shea Place, New Rochelle, NY) A funeral mass will be celebrated on March 24 at the Holy Family Church at 9:30am in New Rochelle, NY.
