Peg­gie Ken­ney died peace­fully on Novem­ber 25 in Red­wood City, CA of nat­u­ral causes.

Peg was born and raised in Lake­view, OR, the youngest of John and Ju­lia Sin­gle­ton’s seven chil­dren. The friend­ships, love of out­doors, and sense of ad­ven­ture (and mis­chief) she de­vel­oped there con­tin­ued through­out her life. She headed to Holy Names Col­lege in Oak­land and, in her se­nior year, met Bill Ken­ney (pre-de­ceased) who be­came the love of her life and hus­band of 54 years.

They set­tled on the Penin­sula and in ad­di­tion to nur­tur­ing a fam­ily, she worked in a va­ri­ety of jobs in the ed­u­ca­tion, hos­pi­tal­ity and le­gal pro­fes­sions. Peg pri­or­i­tized her fam­ily, friends, the­atre & the arts, hik­ing, travel, gar­den­ing – in­clud­ing decades as a vol­un­teer at Filoli – and a good party filled with laugh- ter above all else. The warm hos­pi­tal­ity she ex­tended to her guests was leg­endary. Peg will be missed by her chil­dren Siob­han, Jim (Lynette) and Erin as well as grand­chil­dren Liam and Liv Tis­sot and Ju­lia and Max Ken­ney. She is also sur­vived by sis­ter-in-law Nancy Ken­ney Wright and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

The Ken­neys ex­tend their thanks to the staff of Gor­don Manor for their care and sup­port of Peg­gie. A memo­rial mass will be cel­e­brated on De­cem­ber 5th at 11am at St. Pius Church, 1100 Wood­side Rd, Red­wood City, CA with re­cep­tion to fol­low. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions can be sent to St. An­thony’s Padua Din­ing Room, 3500 Mid­dle­field Road, Red­wood City, CA 94025.

His wife Reba, sis­ter Maria, and beloved dog Tam were by his side. Aure­lio was born on July 4, 1939, in Amado, Ari­zona.
