Celebrating the life of Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Kennedy
Thank you for signing Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Kennedy's Guestbook
To the family of Betty and Ed, my husband and I are so very sorry to read of Betty's passing last year, and I only learned of Ed's passing recently. We had exchanged Christmas cards over the years. I knew them both back in 1980 until they moved to SC. I was transferred to St. Paul MN and worked for Ed at U.S. Steel until he retired. Those were truly the best years of my career, it was a small office and we had dinners or social events. Betty would come by the office. she was gracious and I recall her sense of humor. When they were getting ready to move, Ed came in one day and said he was mowing the lawn and Betty had sold the lawn mower right from underneath him! I learned a lot working for Ed in those early years, and his daughters should be proud -he was ahead of his time in handling women in the workplace, when I was one of the first female "salesmen" in the steel industry, and assigned to him, he never let on if he thought it wierd, just treated me like everyone else and I just became part of the gang there. 38 years later I remember it like yesterday and remember it fondly, they were truly special people and we were lucky to have known them. Our sympathies to your families. With warm regards, Cindy Beck
