Josephine (“Jodie”) Fahey, 93, died peacefully on December 20th under the care of the staff at the Linden Hall Nursing Facility and Willow Tree Hospice. She was a life-long resident of Kennett and member of St. Patrick Church. She graduated from Kennett High School, attended Goldey Business (later Goldey-Beacom College), and enjoyed a forty-year career at Atlas Powder Company and its successors.

Jodie was kind and generous, and she valued her many long-term relationships with early schoolmates, neighbors, relatives, and co-workers, and was cared for by and respected by dedicated friends from near and far. She was known for her amazing memory and knowledge of every aspect of her extended family’s lives, and honored her heritage by passing down a lifetime of family stories and possessions.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert E. and Kathryn Keating Fahey and a sister-in-law, Elizabeth Mullen Fahey. She is succeeded by a brother, Edward J. Fahey and his wife, Susan; three nieces, Susan Calio (James), Patricia Donmoyer (Larry), and Jane Orner (John); a nephew, Robert F. Fahey (Carolyn); two contemporary cousins, Msgr. Charles J. Fahey and James L. Keating; ten great-nieces and nephews, and seven great-great nieces and nephews.

  3. Dear Sue and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I went to visit Jody last week and found she was on hospice. I will truly miss her. We talked a lot on the phone especially after watching Jeopardy. She would always want to know if I knew the final question. I could always count on her for all the “”Kennett News” of the square. I know she is at peace now and visiting all her friends in heaven. With sincere sympathy, Elaine Fiore.
