Dennis Ann Barr Pannell

In condolences and kind words we have received from family and friends regarding the passage of our dear mother, these adjectives were mentioned most often: charming, graceful, elegant and kind. To these we add: highly intelligent, articulate, poised, artistic, stylish and tasteful. Our father and she shared 62 years of a happy marriage together. Though they were both well known and liked about town, our parents lived relatively private lives, happy in the company of themselves, their children, grandchildren, and a small circle of cousins and friends. Mom’s greatest joy in life after her family, was the home of her own talented design, passionately filled over a period of forty years with a now noted collection of Americana — a personification of her essence. We will miss her smile, her soft giggle, the pride and mostly the love we felt in her presence. She was preceded by granddaughter Abigale, and survived by husband Bob; children Bobby, Steve, Cheri and husband Brian, Chrissy, Ricky; grandchildren Emma and Catherine; great grandson Brian Dennis, and sister Lolly.

  3. I was very sad to hear of the passing of Dennis. We were in scouts together and the class of ‘59. She was warm and friendly and fun to be around. Always cheerful and smiling. May your happy memories of her bring you peace and smiles.

  16. Bobby
    Condolences to you and your family. I never met your mother so I’m going to judge her by the job she did raising the one son I have known for years. WHAT A MAGNIFICENT WOMAN! May Gods grace shine on you during this time of sorrow.

  17. Bobby, I moved to Cochranville and a life on a farm. But I have ’58 and ’59 yearbooks that you and Dennis signed!!, and I am grateful!
    Very sorry, Bob.

  18. One of my favorite classmates from our Kennett Class of ’59. She was always so open and warm to every one. Kept in touch with her by phone occasionally over the years as I had left Kennett living for a time in Canada and than settling in a similar town the size of Kennett east of Hartford. We would touch base and talk about life in general. She and Bobby were tight in high school when I arrived from NYC to live in Kennett. Within a year of her graduation they were married. Need I say they were meant for each other. My condolences to Bob and all their children who I never met but am sure have many of the same attributes as their ‘mom’. Rest softly my dear Denis. You will be missed by many.
