Dorothy F. “Dottie” (Senecal) Kenary, 90, lifelong Shrewsbury resident, passed away peacefully on Sunday July 19, 2020. Her beloved husband of 55 years, Roy V. Kenary, predeceased her in 2006.

Born in Worcester, raised in Shrewsbury, Dottie was one of 4 children born to the late Alfred C. and Mary M. (Keeley) Senecal. She was a graduate of St. Peter’s High School in Worcester. After graduation, she began working for the New England Telephone Company, prior to meeting Roy and settling down. The pair made their home in Shrewsbury, where they raised their family.

A woman of great faith, Dottie was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Shrewsbury, and former member of their Jet Set Group, for many years. She was also a member of the Neighborhood Rosary Group.

Dottie is survived by her two daughters, Ann M. Kenary and her partner James Dunn of Oxford, and Arlene T. Strand and her husband Peter of Spencer; five grandchildren, Matthew, Heidi, Michelle, Marie, and Lisa; four great-grandchildren, Katherine, Thomas, Emerson, and Miles; her sister, Marie Senecal; and many dear friends whom she held close to her heart. In addition to her parents and husband, Dottie was also predeceased by her son, Thomas A. Kenary, who passed in 1976, and her two brothers, Alfred and Robert Senecal.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Anne’s Human Services, 130 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, MA 01545.

Her funeral Mass and burial will be held privately for her family. The BRITTON-SHREWSBURY FUNERAL HOME, 648 Main Street, Shrewsbury, MA is honored to be assisting with arrangements.

I am so sorry to hear about Dottie. She was wonderful. I have such fond memories of her over the years.

I know she loved my mom (who didn't?) and I know the feeling was mutual. Two special ladies now at peace with their husbands and most of our family of that generation.

Sending prayers and condolences.

Ann Marie, I was saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. It is always such a huge loss when one's Mom passes. I trust your memories and love for her will bring you through.

With love,

Please accept my sympathy on Dottie’s passing. I knew Dottie from St. Mary’s. She was such a classy and caring person. I enjoyed seeing and talking to her. I am sure she will be missed. Rest In Peace, Dottie.
