Joan Olivia (De Bernardi) Kennaday, age 79, of Idleyld Park, OR, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 21, 2018.
Joan was fiercely devoted to her family and her community. She particularly enjoyed sharing stories about the people and history of the Glide/Idelyd Park area. Her home was always welcome to everyone, including kids that used to live with the family during the school week. She loved feeding people, whether it was for big family gatherings, cooking in the school cafeteria or baking for local fundraising events. In later years, she and her husband enjoyed spending time in the Arizona desert. She also took great pride in her work with the Women's Auxiliary of the local VFW.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Lincoln, of 71 years, as well as two grandsons. She is survived by her four sons, Gary (Rita) Kennaday, David (Paula) Kennaday, Steven (Danielle) Kennaday and Rick (Brigid) Kennaday; her sister, Raelene De Bernardi; as well as six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
A memorial service for family will be planned for a later date.
