Kristina Kay Kennedy

******  NOTE:  UPDATED SERVICES ******

Kristina Kay Kennedy passed away on Thursday, November 2, 2023. Kay was born on May 19, 1953, in Noblesville, Indiana, the daughter of Ernest and Evelyn Kennedy.

She is survived by her two children, Andrew (36) and Molly (35) along with her husband, Kevin Mannix. She is also survived by three sisters, Judith Johnson, Lillian Foland, and Carolyn Rawlings.

Kay was preceded in death by her parents, Ernest Kennedy and Evelyn Kikendall Kennedy, as well as her sister, Barbara Theising. 

Kay grew up in Hamilton County, where her father and mother were the owners of Anderson Hatchery in downtown Noblesville, IN. She grew up as the youngest of five children, where she was blessed to have the love and support of her four older sisters.  She married Kevin Mannix in 1984, and together they raised two children. They have lived in Noblesville, IN close to four decades where many friendships were made over the years. Kay enjoyed spending her time with family, friends, and was very involved in their church community.

Sharing time with her family was something she cherished immensely. Kay has four grandchildren, Kaydence (15), Makaylee (11), Cora (10) and Camden (8), who she adored. She would light up when talking about each one of them and they were deeply loved. 

Kay worked in the surgical field for forty-one years and held multiple roles throughout her career. She enjoyed every part of being a certified surgical technologist and will be greatly missed by those she worked alongside for so many years. 

Her devotion to her Lord and Savior was of the utmost importance. Her life was a living testimony of the love of Jesus Christ, and she wanted to share this love with everyone. It was evident for all to see that Kay would always put others first. She touched the hearts of so many by living a selfless life full of overwhelming generosity, kindness, and joy. She will be remembered for her heart that was always overflowing with love and for her cheerful smile. Kay made the lives of others better by giving of herself without hesitation by listening, caring, and expressing the love of Christ through her actions. 

A celebration of Kay’s life will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2024 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, at Christ Community Church, 4770 E. Main Street, Carmel, IN 46033.
