Obituary For Maggie Kennedy-DeLorme
Knightdale, North Carolina - Maggie Kennedy-DeLorme passed away peacefully on December 18, 2020, surrounded by her dads after a short battle with a heart murmur that led to heart failure. Maggie, 9, was born on June 25, 2011 in Hampton Roads, Virginia. She is survived by her parents, Shane and Joey DeLorme, our sheltie Darla DeLorme, and their extended families including pets.
Maggie was adopted as a puppy while Shane & Joey lived in Norfolk, VA. She graduated from puppy training class with distinction before turning 1. She moved with her family to Raleigh, NC in 2013 and began a new life with them.
She lived her life with the joy and playfulness of a puppy until her last days. She was a constant companion to her family and will always be remembered for her singing, her go-with-the-flow attitude, her warm snuggles, passion for the culinary arts, and love of life.
Never meeting a stranger and never forgetting a face, the people she met along the way became as important to her as her family. Shane & Joey wish to express their gratitude for all of Maggie’s friends for creating a little space in their hearts for her.
When the sheets and bedding were being changed, Maggie was there to keep the blankets warm. When illness struck her family, Maggie was there to provide a warm, soothing cuddle. When the world turned upside down, Maggie’s spirit lifted her family up.
A memorial service will be announced at a later time.
