Aspen, CO Colorado

Jeanne H. Kenyon died peacefully May 15, 2011 after a year-long battle with cancer.

Jeanne was a long-time member of the Junior League of Birmingham, Mich., The Christ Child Society and the Discalced Carmelites. She loved traveling annually to Aspen, where she went horseback riding, ballooned, attended festivals and events and enjoyed many holidays and the great outdoors. She made many new friends in the Roaring Fork Valley over the past 10 years.

Closer to her home, Jeanne loved singing in the Holy Name Choir in Birmingham and regularly at nursing homes with the Junior League Music Group. Always an adventurer, Jeanne traveled to Rome, Australia, South America and other destinations with the St. Thomas More Travel Group. Never shying away from the spotlight, Jeanne enjoyed performing in the St. Dunstan’s Theater Group of Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

Jeanne retired from Somerset Leasing last year after 20-plus years of making people feel at home. Jeanne was a joyful spirit to lifelong friends and new acquaintances alike.

She was the beloved mother of Bill (Karen), Mary Kenyon, John (Katie), Karen Stetser and David; and grandmother of Bill III, Kristina, Kara, Kimberly, Kendra, John Jr., Justin, Courtney, Austin, Kelly Ann, Michael and Thomas.

A funeral Mass was held at Holy Name Catholic Church in Birmingham, Mich. View an obituary and share memories in the guestbook at

We love you and miss you, Mom.
