It is with great sadness we share the passing of our dear Mother Kennon Elizabeth (nee Casey) Donovan on January 11th, 2022 following a brief illness. Kennon was the proud Mother of Glenn, Andrew, Margaret-Mary (Jim White), and Patrick (Donna Nicholson), loving Grandmother to Kyrian, Casey, Jessica, Nicole, Kathryn, Peirce, Charlie, and Great-Grandmother to Ayden, Quinn, and Kylah. Kennon was a registered nurse at Belleville General Hospital from 1957 to 1996 and loved being a healthcare worker in the Emergency Department. She loved her family and spending time within nature especially at the family cottage. She had an infectious laugh and witty sense of humour and will be sorely missed by family and friends. She is pre-deceased by her parents John Leo and Helen Ethelwyn (nee Smith) Casey, older sister Barbara and brother-in-law Brigadier General R.F. "Herbie" Herbert, brother-in-law Robert MacWilliam and her husband of more than 40 years Gordon James Donovan. Kennon leaves behind her sister Nancy MacWilliam and brother Sandy Casey (Sharon Casey) and a multitude of nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations to 4 Lucky Paws Animal Rescue http://www.4luckypaws.ca, Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre http://sandypineswildlife.org, or local animal shelters in her name would be greatly appreciated.
A Graveside Service will be held at St. James Cemetery, Belleville, on Saturday, July 9th, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. All are welcome. Please contact Steele Funeral Home if you have any questions (613-968-2273).
