1972-1976 - Marching Member, Colour Guard/Rifle Line

June 10, 2023

It is with overwhelming sadness that we share the news of the passing of our drum corps sister Kelly Kenny (McHutchion). Kelly passed away on Saturday, June 10, 2023 after a short illness.


Kelly joined St. John's in 1972 as a member of the colour guard and was part of the spectacular rifle line of 1976. In 1977 and '78 Kelly marched with Seneca Optimists in Toronto where she also met her future husband Kim.


Kelly and Kim later moved their family to Brantford. Here Kelly became involved with many community organizations including the Girl Guides of Canada and the Brantford Gardening club. She was also a member of the Catholic Women's Auxiliary at St. Basil's Church as well as being involved with the charity Little Boxes that raises funds for cancer care.


In 1996 Kelly reconnected with her drum corps roots in Brantford where she became a member of the St. John's Board of Directors. In 2000 Kelly became a member of the Preston Scout House Band colour guard, continuing her long commitment to the activity and the people she knew through it.


Kelly joined the Alumni Committee in 2012 and was instrumental in the planning and execution of the 60thAnniversary weekend and many other Alumni activities.


Kelly's giving spirit, kindness and laughter will be greatly missed by all who knew her.


Sorry, we do not have photos to share at this time.
