Celebration of the Beautiful Life of Annie Kennedy
Sunday, October 15th 2023, 4:00 pm
Mendakota Country Club in Mendota Heights
Friends in Minnesota are putting together a keepsake box for Matt and Allie Kennedy. We ask that you bring TWO copies of favorite photos, write up of how you knew Annie and/or Pat, or a favorite sweet or funny memory of them. This will help keep their memories alive for their children and grandchildren as they both left us too soon. If you can’t join us on October 15, please feel free to send your memories to Susanne to be included in the keepsake box.
We are incredibly saddened by the news that former EMRC member Annie Kennedy has died. Tragically, she was killed in a car accident in Columbus, Ohio, where she had been living since the death of Patrick, her husband, in 2015.
Annie grew up in Olney, Illinios, attended Bethel University and was active in music and creative arts. Annie spent much of her career in the incentive business, developing programs and promotional products. Think embroidered shirts and jackets, printed coasters and cup holders, and more. Together with Patrick, Annie loved the game of golf and was a long-time member of Mendakota Golf Club in Mendota Heights.

Annie Borah Kennedy joined Edina Morningside Rotary in November of 1995. Her sponsor was her husband Patrick, who was a club charter member. Annie served as club president during the 2004-05 Rotary year and she attended the 2005 Rotary International Convention in Chicago, the Centennial Anniverary of Rotary. Annie served as Club Administrator, and she and Pat served Rotary District 5950 as trainers, providing entertaining and fun projects to promote the growth of Rotary in our district. Edina Morningside Rotary Club hosts the annual Pat Kennedy Golf Classic, recognizing the love both Patrick and Annie had for the game of golf, and for Rotary. 
Annie touched many hearts. Annie loved her beautiful Arizona home which she built with Pat and shared with friends on occasion.
Annie had fun! She cherished her friends in Rotary and in the community, and her passion was fabric arts including rug hooking together with her twin sister Jane. We will miss you Annie! We will carry your spirit in our hearts.
