Terry Ann Kennedy

Terry Ann Kennedy of Norwell, formerly a longtime resident of Hull and Weymouth, passed away on Friday, April 19, 2024.  She was 79.

She was born in Weymouth to Edna V. (Balf) and Terrence J. O’Hare.  Terry was raised in Hull by her mother and stepfather, Eli Mistovich.  In high school, she was a tremendous athlete and was offered college scholarships for being an amazing field hockey player. After high school, she worked as an administrative assistant at Boston University and then at Massa for many years.

Terry had two beautiful daughters, Kerry and Joanne, with her first husband of 15 years. She and her second husband, Joseph T. Kennedy, were married for 23 wonderful years before Joe passed. When they first met, Joe impressed her with his dance steps, and the rest is history. Terry and Joe were no strangers to a good time. They liked to go camping at Peter’s Pond Park in Sandwich, sharing great times with many close friends.

Terry’s greatest joy was her family.  She loved spending time with them and adored her children and grandchildren. She always lent a helping hand to family and friends, whether by making meals, driving her grandchildren to school, or helping her daughters in any way she could. She enjoyed listening to Irish music, watching the Hallmark Channel and game shows, and completing word search puzzles. 

Terry lived life on her terms.  Her feisty, fun-loving personality will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Beloved wife to the late Joseph T. Kennedy.  Devoted mother to Kerry Berlen and her husband Vincent, Joanne Markunas and her husband John and stepmother to Joie Douglas and her husband Mike. Loving sister to Susan Schoen and her late husband Bob, Eli Mistovich Jr. and his wife Linda, and Gary Mistovich and his wife Kim. Adoring “Nana” to Christina Berlen, Nicholas Berlen, Anthony Berlen, Braden Douglas, Colby Douglas and Peyton Douglas.
