Beatrice Duncan Kennedy went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 7, 2021. The strain of polio was no more, as she ran to the arms of Jesus! What a joyous reunion.
“Sis Bea” started her musical debut around the age of 4. She blessed many people with her piano playing. It brought her much joy. New Hope Baptist Church near Bullard was her home church. Her beautiful relatives and friends never forgot her, even though she lived with her daughter in her later years.
Beatrice was born on November 13, 1928, to Joe and Ruby Duncan. She was their princess. Her loving husband, Clifton Kennedy, son, Clifton Kennedy Jr. (Shane),and her two caring brothers, Ross Earl Duncan and Joe Duncan Jr., preceded her in death.
Survivors include her son, John Wayne Kennedy, and her daughter, Ruthie Kennedy Romero. She also leaves behind her granddaughters, Charissa Romero Traver, Christina Romero Mah, Kayla Romero, LaShaundra McGee Kennedy, LaGloria Edwards, and Sarina Taylor. Her grandsons are John Romero, Joshua Romero, and Isaac Romero. Sis Bea was also blessed to have 11 great grandchildren, as well as other beloved relatives. She also leaves behind two sister-in-laws, Mary Duncan and Mildred Duncan.
Special to mom is Betty Lou Caldwell. Mom loved her as a sister. Another special relative is Bobbie Bowie, cousin and beautiful matriarch to so many people. Grace Jackson is also a precious lady who was Beatrice’s provider for so many years. She cared for her and stepped in whenever she was needed.
John 14: 1] "Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?  And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
