Palestine, Jun. 29, 1930 - Ill. — Mar. 16, 2022'Kakie' Margaret Kathryn "Kakie" Kennedy, 91, of North Carolina, formerly of Palestine, IL, passed away on March 16, 2022. She was born June 29, 1930, and spent much of her life in Palestine. Here she was active with a number of area organizations, including the Junior Woman's Club. A lover of sport, she enjoyed playing and coaching softball, a pastime that provided her with countless hours of exhilarating enjoyment over the years. She also found joy in painting and crafting. In fact, Kakie was the proud owner of a ceramic shop on Main Street in Palestine for a time.
Anyone who knew her could attest to her love of animals, but especially horses. This passion led her to Flurry's Hope Blind Horse Sanctuary, where she had the opportunity to ride horseback in her 80s!
Those she leaves behind will remember Kakie as a fun-spirited soul who loved nothing more than clowning around and giving others a hard time. She left behind a legacy that could never be forgotten.
She is survived by her sons & daughters-in-law, Michael Dean & Carolyn Kennedy and Brian Dale & Pamela Ann Kennedy; by her grandchildren & their spouses, Michael Dean (II) & Hope Lynn Kennedy, Dustin & Tamara "Tammy" Kennedy, Sassie & Shawn Logan, and Chris Kennedy; by her great-grandchildren, Tyler Michael Kennedy, Nicholas Dale Kennedy, Haley Nicole Kennedy, Wyatt Kennedy, Alysa Kennedy, Kirsten Logan, Carissa (Logan) & Alex Wood, Caitlyn Kennedy, and David Kennedy; by her great-great-grandchildren, Taylor Grace Kennedy, Raelynn Faith Kennedy, Harper Lee Kennedy, Kennedy Wood, Liam Wood, and Aiden Wood; and by her nieces, Shelley Fowler Johnson and Rayanne Fowler McGovern.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Byrl & Fern Fowler; by her brother, Ray Lavern Fowler; and by her daughter, Cynthia Lynn Kennedy.
It was Kakie's wish to be cremated, and her cremated remains are to be scattered at a later date. In honor of her passion for horses, memorial donations can be sent to:
Flurry's Hope Blind Horse Sanctuary

Madison, NC 27025-7776
