Obituary of Lucy McCorkle Kennedy

Lucy McCorkle Kennedy “Corky”, passed away at Middlesex Memorial Hospital after a lengthy battle with cancer on July 31st, 2018 at 8:45AM. She leaves behind her spouse of 42 years, Joseph Sita, her two boys, Dallas Kennedy-Sita & his wife Lindsey of Southborough MA, Wesley Kennedy-Sita & his wife Amanda of Boca Raton, FL and 3 grandchildren, Sara Jane (6), Finnian (4), & Emily Lucy (3m). She is also survived by her sister, Jane Nichols & her husband Ned of Essex, her sister Elizabeth Kennedy of FL, her brother David Kennedy of Virginia, her brother Douglas Kennedy & his wife Martine of Vancouver B.C., her mother-in-law, Anita Sita of FL and many nephews, nieces, & loving friends. A visitation will be at Robinson, Wright and Weymer Funeral Home, 34 Main Street in Centerbrook on Friday, August 10th, from 5 to 7PM.  There will also be a memorial service held at the Essex Congregational Church, 6 Methodist Hill, in Essex on Saturday, September 8th, at 11AM. Corky was extremely eloquent, capable of painting pictures with words as well as brushstrokes and had a genuine love of the arts. She was well traveled in her youth, by virtue of the fact that her father brought each of his children with him on a variety of trips around the world. She continued that passion for travel throughout her life, bringing the breadth of her experiences to her marriage, providing an extremely well rounded foundation for the growth and development of her family. As a close friend remarked upon her passing, “Corky changed our lives”. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hospice Unit at Middlesex Memorial Hospital, 28 Crescent Street, Middletown, CT., 06457.
