Everettine Kennedy, was born November 3, 1924 in Baltimore, Maryland to the proud parents of Alex and Margaret Beckom.
Being an only child, Everettine went and graduated from the Baltimore City Public School System. Everettine was affectionately known as Tina. After graduation Tina went to work for Glen L. Martin Company. Then in 1961 a young William Taft Kennedy swept her off her feet and they were happily married. The young couple made their home in Edmonson Village, soon after realizing that they both had so much love to share they added 3 children to make it complete, Andre (Ricky), Antoine (Sid), and Everettine (Sherry).
During this time the Kennedy's along with the other residents of Edmonson Village watched their neighborhood and children flourish. Mrs. Tina would rule Grantley Street especially her side of the block keeping it clean, and always making the house beautiful. Many kids, now grown, remember Mrs. Tina's famous words "get of my fences baby". Edmonson Village was a beautiful community Thanks to Mrs. Tina, and the other neighbors that diligently kept the kids involved in activities. Everyone knew Mrs. Tina and if you didn't by the time she
would joke and cut up with you, you would never forget her. She continued her spiritual journey in the same church she grew up in Shiloh Baptist Church. Even in her later years she continued
to help people. Mrs. Tina worked as a Senior Companion for Baltimore City where she would visit and assist other older adults. Mrs. Tina remained on. Grantley Street until age 94 when her health started to decline. On March 15, 2020 God called her to a new home with him.
Her memory will be cherished by her 2 Sons, Andre Kennedy, Antoine Kennedy; 1 Daughter, Everettine Sherry Kennedy; 2 Granddaughters, Lashonda and Jaylin; Longtime friends, Mrs.
Geneva Harrid and Dorothy Bridges and many, many friends.
