Ms. Kennedy Vee Chapman passed away March 11, 2020 at the age of 76. She lived in California and moved to Oahu Hawaii, twice, as a young girl, then as a teenager as her father was in the US Army. She attended Leilehua High School, where she was crowned “Miss Caucasian” her senior year, and later attended Church College (now known as Brigham Young University-West). There she met and married her former husband and father of her two daughters. A mother at 20 and married to a college student, Kennedy moved with then-husband to Moline, Illinois where she taught dance, then returned to Oahu. In 1976 she moved with her daughters and parents to Aptos and worked in banking for many years. She was an active parishioner of Resurrection Church in Aptos for decades.
