Francesca Kenneway

November 01, 1928 - July 01, 2018

Manchester - Manchester, NH
Francesca Deery Kenneway died at Mount Carmel Nursing Home in
Manchester NH on July 1, 2018.
Francesca, warmly known as Franny, was born in Chelsea MA November 1, 1928, daughter of Charles H. and Josephine Davis Deery.
Franny spent her early childhood in Revere MA.
After high school, Fran furthered her education and earned a BA degree from Mount Saint Mary College in Hooksett NH.
Franny dedicated most of her adult life in the service of others as a Sister of Mercy of the Northeast Community. She taught in several
parochial schools throughout NH.
The highlight of her career was an appointment to UNH and St. Thomas More Parish in Durham NH as Associate Catholic Chaplain in 1968.
In 1970, her affiliation with the Sisters of Mercy ended, but not her dedication and service to youth as she continued her ministry at UNH and St. Thomas More parish.
In 1973 Fran furthered her education at UNH and earned a degree Master of Education. At that time Fran returned to public education as a school counselor in Derry, NH.
In 1985 Franny married Alfred Kenneway and eventually moved to Maine where she continued her service to others through her tireless commitment to children in the public schools in the Newport, ME area.
In 2006, Frans husband Al sadly passed away.
After a period of declining health, Franny moved from Maine to Warde Health Center in Windham, NH, and later to Mount Carmel Nursing Home in Manchester, NH. At the Home she received excellent, loving care from all of the dedicated staff.
Franny will be missed by those whose lives were touched by her wise counsel and kindness.
Per Frannys request, there will be no services. Remember her by your dedication and caring for others who struggle on lifes journey.
