Roberta Rodney Kennick passed away gently in the morning hours of Feb. 11, 2013. Born October
11, 1917 in Jamestown, NY and then moved to Glendale, CA in her youth. Her death followed that
of her beloved husband of 67 years Samuel “Bud” A. Kennick who passed away in 2008, and her eldest son Gary R. Kennick who passed away in 1992. She is survived by son Thomas C. Kennick, daughter Carol J. Reesha, grandchildren Michael Kennick, Shannon Armstrong, Brittany Tavalaro and Kelly Sava, as well as seven precious great-grandchildren.
Roberta’s early years as devoted military wife and mother were spent moving as needed until
she and Bud ultimately settled in her home town of La Crescenta/Glendale to raise their family. After retirement they moved to Camarillo and spent many years traveling. With the onset of declining health and after Bud’s passing Roberta moved to Carlsbad and just recently to Valencia to be closer to family where she ultimately passed.
A memorial service to honor her life will be held at 10:00 am on Tuesday Feb. 19, 2013 at Faith Chapel of Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
