Obituary

 

ELAINE CLAIRE KENNEDY nee Gaiser age 94; passed away peacefully surrounded

by her loving family. She was born on April 15, 1928 and would remind us that it is

“Income Tax Day and no one has any money left on that day”.  As her son once said,

“If there were a hall of fame for mothers, she would be in it.”  Elaine was predeceased by her

parents, sisters, Jane Ericson (John) and Shirley Hahn (Bud), grandson, Jackson Kennedy and

husband, Robert G. Kennedy. She is survived by her four children and their loving partners:

Vickie Milanich, Bobbie McNutt, Eric and Amy and six grandchildren: Nicholas Milanich (Michelle),

Timothy Milanich (Megan), Courtney McNutt Kuhne (John), Sarah Jane McNutt Lyles (Robert),

Alexandra Kennedy and Madison Kennedy; as well as seven great-grandchildren.

She was an avid tennis player, swimmer and bridge player. Though she enjoyed travel, she was

a native Clevelander and treasured her time with her four children and their families. She was one of the

first personal shoppers at Higbee’s Beachwood Place, a talented artist who enjoyed entertaining and cooking.

Elaine was a kind soul who was loved by all who knew her, including her beloved pets Abigail, Angel, Maggie, and Lilly.

She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Services will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2023, 2:30PM at
