Patricia (Pat) A. Kenny of Hingham, MA died peacefully with her family around her on April 13, 2022 at the age of 98. Pat was born on January 30, 1924 in Braintree MA and graduated from Braintree High School. She was the daughter of the late Mary Benson (Mooney) and David Benson, and wife of the late Jerry Kenny.

Devoted grandmother of 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
Pat worked for the Department of the Navy until she retired and received multiple commendations including one from Rear Admiral Chambers citing her “exceptional professional ability, initiative and loyal dedication to duty reflect great credit upon herself and was in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. naval service.
Pat was a woman of great faith, a great friend, author of her own family cook book and loved to spend time with family.
After living on her own until last summer, a lack of mobility resulted in her moving into Queen Anne Nursing Home in Hingham where she received excellent care. The family wishes to thank all the staff who were as much friends as caregivers. They would also like thank Autumn Hospice who provided such wonderful support to Pat and the whole family.
