About Joan Stephanie Kroeger

Joan Kenney died August 12 after a long and loving life. She was 91. Joan was the daughter of Robert W. Kroeger and Loretta Moylan Kroeger . She grew up on Deepdene Road in one of several houses built by her grandfather for his children. She attended Roland Park Elementary School and graduated from Eastern High School. After graduation she worked in the drafting department of the "gas house" (BGE) while attending the Maryland Institute College of Art. Joan met her future husband, Edward Carey Kenney, at MICA at the end of WWII. They were happily married for 63 years, until his death in 2012. At MICA Joan studied fashion drawing and art education, while Edward, recently returned from service in the infantry in Italy, pursued advanced studies in painting on the G.I.Bill. When Edward took a job teaching art at McDonogh School, the newly married couple moved to the McDonogh campus, and served as house parents for resident students for a year. Joan became as much a part of the McDonogh community as her husband, and the many wonderful friendships they formed with faculty, students, staff and administrators lasted their lifetime. Some years after they moved off campus, Joan taught art in the Lower School as a long term substitute. Joan spent her adult life in devoted caregiving for all who needed her. In turn she cared for her children, her parents and in-laws, several aunts, grandchildren, friends, and her husband in his final illness. She was a deeply empathetic person and she retained a life-long interest in people and their doings. She was also smart, strong willed, articulate, funny and charming. She will be deeply missed by her children (Patrick, Bob, Mary, Ned and Kate), grandchildren (Nick, Kristen, Rachel, Scott and Allison), her children- and grandchildren-in-law (John, Judy, Robin, Joyce, Tiffani, and Brian) and her brother Robert W. Kroeger, Jr. Sadly she will miss the birth of her first great-grandchild, but that child will surely be told many loving stories of her life. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/baltimoresun/obituary.aspx?n=joan-kroeger-kenney&pid=172114393#sthash.XOBqO9KQ.dpuf ...more about Joan Stephanie Kroeger

Bob Kenney Thanks for noticing, I've had that thought myself. 'Course those pictures were from before I was born and it was quite a few more years and a few 'Thin Man' movies before I even knew who Myrna Loy was.
