Bert Kenny Obituary, Death Cause – Our hearts were overtaken with unfathomable anguish as soon as any one of us realized that our beloved friend Bert had passed away earlier today. Bert has participated in the activities of our committee ever since it first got started, hence he is considered an active member. He never skipped a meeting and was always there to lend a hand whenever it was required. That was his favorite duty since he appreciated the tough physical effort as well as the humorous banter that came along with operating the dump truck. His favorite chore was operating the dump truck.
His coworkers knew they could rely on him to maintain things in a positive frame of mind at all times. Even as late as a few years ago, he was still contributing to the maintenance of the woodlands by distributing gravel in the dumper, which Gerry Doyle would fill with the digger. This was one of his contributions. It wasn’t until January of this year that we learned that Gerry Doyle had passed away. Barbara and the rest of Bert’s family are in our thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of their cherished patriarch. Our condolences go out to Barbara.
Our thoughts and prayers are also with the rest of Bert’s family. His education was enhanced by his time spent at both Ann Arbor High School and Webster Church School, and he received diplomas from both of those schools. In addition to being a member of the Webster Congregational Church, he was also a member of the IOOF Lodge No. 438 of Hamburg and a life member of the Washtenaw Lodge No. 65, F&AM. Both of these organizations were located in Hamburg.
In addition to that, Kenny was a participant in the 1111th Grange and served on the board of directors for the No. 2 School District. In the past, he was a member of the Board of Supervisors for the county, and during that time he served as the Webster Township representative. Mrs. Jessie Baylis, Mrs. Donna Baldus, and Miss Bertha Kenny are among the surviving family members. Also surviving are Mr. Munnis Kenny, Mr. George Kenny, and Mr. John Kenny, as well as 14 grandkids, 10 great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, and one great-great-great-grandchild.
