Please share a memory of Mary to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Smethport - Mary Kay Kinney, 56, of Hazel Hurst, PA, passed away peacefully Friday (November 25, 2022) at her residence in Hazel Hurst with her husband by her side, after a long battle with COPD.

She was born April 28,1966, in Port Allegany, the daughter of Tommy Starr and Patricia (Kelly) Starr. On November 15, 1985, in Bradford, PA, she married Timothy R. Kinney, who survives.

Mary Kay was a graduate of Port Allegany High School Class of 1984.

Until her health conditions made it impossible, she was employed at Sena Kean Manor in Smethport for 15½ years as a Certified Nurse’s Aide and for 5 years as a Housekeeper.

Though Mary Kay’s health was declining for years, few people knew the extent to which she struggled. Her joy for life and indomitable spirit kept her pushing through the pain. Despite any hardships or challenges she endured in her life, you would never hear her complain about a thing. Mary Kay was a dedicated wife and mother first and foremost. She treasured her family and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Nana. She was a compassionate spirit whose passion was caring for others. Mary Kay will always be remembered for being a great friend, her selflessness, her love for animals, and her unconditional love. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
