Jeanette Crowson Kennedy
Jeanette Crowson Kennedy, age 89, a resident of Baton Rouge, passed away on September 18, 2021. Jeanette was born on Bayou Chene and moved to New Iberia as a young girl. She met her husband Harry and they traveled with the Air Force as they began building their family of four children. They eventually settled in Slidell, LA and lived there for 37 years. Jeanette and Harry lost their daughter Jodi in 1990 and made the selfless decision to raise their grandchildren, Clay, Will and Dylan Harris at that time. It was in these years that Jeanette's love of baseball shined as she watched her grandsons excel in SBBA league play, Slidell High School and then onto LSU. Jeanette spent countless hours cheering on baseball teams that even in her last months on earth, she made sure she could watch the little league World Series on TV. Her love of sports, playing cards, and that perfect after dinner dessert will forever be in our memories. Jeanette was the perfect matriarch of her family and her love for her kids, grandkids and great grandchildren was limitless. She will be greatly missed. Jeanette is survived by her children, Harry Kennedy, Jr. and wife Jeanne Dubberly Kennedy, Karen Kennedy Griggs and husband John Griggs, Patty Kennedy Terrell and husband Ted Terrell, her sister Vivian Fowler and husband Russell Fowler, her grandchildren, Harry Kennedy, III (Tiffany), Joshua Kennedy (Sharon), Ashley Ferrer (Simon), Clay Harris (Allison), Will Harris (Caroline), Kelli Endsley (John), Lacey Terrell, Dylan Harris (Carey), her great grandchildren Jodi, Kaycie, Zaley, Lauren, Kiana, Joshua (Jr) and Harry (IV) Kennedy. Anna Jean, Zoey, Jakson and Preston Endsley. Flynn and Hayes Ferrer. Jodi, Logan, Lily, Jack and soon to be born Aubree Harris. She is preceded in death by her husband Harry Benton Kennedy, Sr., her daughter Jodi Kennedy Harris, her parents George William Crowson, Sr. and Alma Larson Crowson and her brother George William Crowson, Jr. A memorial service will be held at Jefferson Baptist Church on October 9 at 11:00. Church is located at 9135 Jefferson Hwy, Baton Rouge, LA 70809.

We are so sorry to hear of Jeanette's passing. She was the wife of our cousin, Harry, (H.B.) Kennedy, as we all knew him. He spoke so very highly of Jeanette. I really wish we had known her. We grew up in Delaware and only saw H.B. at Tennessee Kennedy reunions. God Bless your family and may she Rest in Peace.
