Nelda Ann Kennedy

Nelda Ann Kennedy, 64, of Trenton, born January 14, 1952, after a four-year battle with breast cancer, took her journey to be with loved ones in heaven on January 9, 2017, surrounded by family. She was very brave during her fight and worried more about those around her than about herself. She talked with her sisters every day and enjoyed outings with them to Wal-Mart.

She enjoyed time with her family and grandchildren near the end of her struggle. Nelda appreciated her nephew David Chancy and sister Barbara Jones very much. They were a great help to her attending doctor’s appointments and treatments. She will be remembered for her sense of humor that took her years to find. She will be missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, David and Beatrice Holland: aunts, Rose Etta Holland and Ether Hubble.siblings, Donna Chapman, Michael and Anita Holland; niece, Anita Chapman; nephew Jess Chancy; uncle, Charles DeFoy; children, Rhonda Grant and Eddie Tinker; and grandson, Charlie Grant.

She is survived by her husband, Charles Kennedy; children, Lydia Holland, Edward Holland, Jeannie Kennedy and Elizabeth Vandergriff; and grandchildren Michael, Tyler, Meagan, T.J. Cassidy, Nicholas, Hilary, Tyler, Hannah, Kaylene, Madelyn, Alisha and Ashley; and one great-grandchild, Jasmine; siblings, Barbara Jones, Karen Willis and David Holland; aunt, Virginia Young; and several nieces and nephews.

There will be a private memorial service at a later time. Arrangements by Ryan Funeral Home, Trenton.
