Mary Jane Kennedy, age 88, of Cambridge City and formerly of Hackenburg Lake, passed away at home on Monday, July 3, 2017. She was born on March 26, 1929 in Seminole, Oklahoma to Jackson J. and Mary (Mouser) Miller. Mary Jane met her future husband, Phillip Kennedy at a roller rink in Wichita, KS and they married on October 25, 1947. Together they raised a family of six children. In 1952, the family moved from Tennessee to Muncie, IN and in the late 60’s they moved to the lake at Wolcottville, IN. There she began a career in the RV business, first in the office and ultimately as a woodworker in the cabinet shop. She retired from full time work after over 15 years with Starcraft in Goshen, IN. Mary Jane loved having fish fries, playing games – corn hole, bowling and spending time with her family.
