It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that KBIA’s beloved and longtime CIT Coordinator Maureen McEnaney passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 2nd, after battling with cancer for more than two years.
Maureen joined the KBIA staff in 2011, transforming the CIT program, and hosting many fun Tween Nights. With her four children also attending KBIA for several summers, KBIA was – and is – a place of family, friendship, and fun-filled days for their entire family. Her fun loving and good natured presence will be greatly missed at KBIA and in the Kennebunk communities.
As this news will affect each individual differently, especially children, it is important to support one another through the grieving process and know that resources are available. The Center for Grieving Children (CGC), a Maine based non-profit supporting families, schools, and other organizations dealing with death and grief, has been an ongoing support to the KBIA community this summer as we have navigated the loss of Maureen. The CGC will continue to be available to individuals as needed during this difficult time, so please let us know if you or your child could benefit from this service.
Details on a celebration of Maureen’s life will be forthcoming. In lieu of flowers, the McEnaney family requests that donations be made to the KBIA scholarship fund under Maureen’s name.
The KBIA family offers our love, support, and deepest sympathies to the McEnaney family.
