Mrs. Doris Steen Kennedy of Raeford went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 11, 2023, at the age of 77.
Doris was born in Marlboro County, SC on November 12, 1945, to the late John and Elizabeth Steen.
She was preceded in death by 11 of her siblings.
Doris was a member of the United Pentecostal Church for many years. She was a Godly woman who loved her family very much. Not a day went by where she didn’t speak of the Lord. She was dedicated, a hard worker, and a strong woman who prayed often. Doris would invite soldiers who didn’t have a place to go during the holidays over for dinner. She was also a singer and would often travel to different nursing homes and sing for them. She loved gardening, sewing, crafting, and taking care of her family. Doris lived for her children and grandchildren. They will miss her very much.
Doris is survived by her husband of 56 years, Jerry Wilkins Kennedy; 5 children, Charles Jr., Stephanie, Jerry Jr. (Bit), Tonya, and Crissie; 7 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; and 3 siblings, Kathy, Gary, and Nell.
A memorial service will be held at 4 pm Saturday, January 14, 2023, at Solid Rock UPC. 1430 N. Main St. Raeford, NC 28376.
