Mary Katheryn Jones, a daughter given by the Lord to Bayard and Sarah Kennedy, was born in Clermont, Florida on July 22, 1919, and at 93 years of age went to be with Jesus in Heaven, Friday night September 21, 2012 at Hope Hospice in Lehigh, Florida.

Mary Katheryn, also known as "Kittie" to her friends and family, was surrounded by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and all those who loved her until her final moments on this earth. 

Loving mother, fun and doting grandmother, Mary Katheryn gave joy to those around her. Mary Katheryn met her late husband Thomas Jones in Boca Grande, Florida, where the two fell in love and were married in 1940. They were blessed with two sons, Tommy and Bob, and two daughters, Joyce and Patti. 

Thomas and Mary Katheryn lived most of their married life in Clewiston, Florida where they served their church and community, when Thomas went to be with the Lord in 1979. They were married for 38 years. 

Mary Katheryn never remarried, telling her family and friends that she had "had the best and once you've had the best you just can't settle for anything less". After being separated by death for more than 32 years, today we rejoice that she is once again reunited with Thomas and with her two sons, Tommy and Bob.
