Kerri Kennedy Hartman passed peacefully in her home Wednesday June 15, 2022, surrounded by family, after a long battle with cancer. Kerri was 60 years old and the daughter of Delno and Marcia (Johnson) Kennedy, who both preceded her in death. On March 1, 1999, in Breckenridge, CO., she married Garry Hartman, and he survives.
Kerri was a 1979 graduate of Northwestern High School, where she was a gymnast and cheerleader. Kerri went on to a very successful career in Property Management. Kerri held numerous certifications and received many awards during her career. Most notably, was her Indiana Apartment Association’s Manager of the Year Award. After her diagnosis with cancer, Kerri started working and volunteering at Westfield High School. Kerri has been a fixture there since 2008, where you could find her running a cash register in the cafeteria or taking tickets at the football stadium every Friday night. Kerri loved attending all her children’s sporting events, working in her yard and DIY projects, and trips to the casino. Above all, Kerri was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and caregiver to all.
Kerri is survived by her husband; daughters, Alexis and Abigail; son, Aydan; sister, Kammie; brother, Kent; and grandchildren, Jenner, Cali and Maverick.
She was preceded in death by her brother Kirk and daughter Amanda Lynne.
