West Newbury, MA - Sarah Taylor Kennefick, 25, died and journeyed to heaven on January 22, 2020. Sarah Taylor was raised in West Newbury, attended John C. Page Elementary School and graduated from Pentucket High School in 2012. She went on to obtain her CNA certification.
Sarah Taylor was the deeply loved daughter of Mary Lee and Don Kennefick, adored mommy of Miabella Rose and Quinn Mae, and cherished sister of Michael, Kassidy, and Jake. She leaves behind several aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and loving grandmother, Margaret of Gloucester, Mass.
Sarah Taylor was loved by many who appreciated her fun loving, quirky personality. She loved travel adventures with her family, especially to Prince Edward Island, camping in New Hampshire, and strolling the beaches of the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida Coast. She was happy, carefree, and at peace in these places. She would walk for hours to find the perfect piece of sea glass, and swim until her fingers turned blue!
She kept extremely active in her childhood playing softball and was an accomplished gymnast. In high school, she continued playing softball and competing in gymnastics, as well as trying her skills at field hockey, track and cheerleading. She was a gifted athlete. She could also be found for hours on end in some comfy corner of the house curled up with a good book or sketching one of her many intricate art pieces.
To honor Sarah Taylor's life, please give all those you love an extra big hug and thank God for every day you have together.
