Muriel C. Kenney


Muriel C. Kenney

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Muriel Clara Kenney, 89, of Amherst, at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Saturday, December 29, 2018, with her loving family at her side.  Muriel was the last surviving member of her immediate family and was born in Amherst, March 28, 1929, the only daughter of the late Frederick and Eva (LeBlanc) Robichaud.

Muriel was a member of the Holy Family Parish, and the Cumberland Club of the CNIB.  

Muriel moved to Toronto with her husband, Roger J Kenney, where she worked in a secretarial position with a local insurance company for many years before retiring back home to Amherst in 1977.

Musically talented, along with her father, she was a member of the June Bugs, a local group that would play at community events and local nursing homes.

She will be dearly missed by her sisters-in-law, Shirley and Alda Robichaud, as well as her nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Roger Kenney, as well as her brothers, Larry and Raymond Robichaud.
