Obituary of Mary Ann Kennington

Mary Ann (Pacini) Kennington, age 65, passed away on July 19th, 2019 after an almost two year battle with cancer. Mary Ann was a long-time resident of Las Vegas, but also enjoyed homes in both Castle Rock, CO & Coronado, CA after marrying Bruce E. Moore in 2011. Originally from Lewistown, PA, Mary Ann went on to live in Maine, Florida & Virginia prior to establishing an over 40 year residency in Las Vegas, NV. She held the honor of being the youngest person inducted into the Honor Society during her initial education in Pennsylvania, then went on to receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Christopher Newport University in Virginia and completed her education with a MBA from UNLV. Mary Ann was a multi-talented business woman who served 30 years as Legal Administrator for the prestigious Las Vegas-based law firm of Lionel, Sawyer & Collins Ltd. She retired as their Executive Director in April 2011. She was preceded in death by her parents Dorothy (Henry) and John Pacini of Lewistown, PA. Surviving Mary Ann are husband Bruce E. Moore of Castle Rock CO; her twin brother, John A. Pacini of Largo, FL; her sister Virginia (Pacini) Krepps of Milroy, PA; and her cousin, Ruth (Pacini) Holt of Atlanta, GA. Also mourning her loss are close friends Linda B. Riegle, Kathleen J. England, & Carrol A. Marquis who tenderly cared for Mary Ann during her final hospitalizations. Most especially, Mary Ann will be remembered for her infectious smile, generosity to friends in need, perpetual optimism, sincere love of animals, and finally for her brilliant mind. At Mary Ann’s request, there will be no funeral services. However, friends may leave condolences by signing the guestbook at the website for Kraft & Sussman which is handling the arrangements for her cremation. For those wishing to make a donation in Mary Ann’s honor, her favorite charity was Child Fund International, but she was also a strong supporter of Best Friends Animal Society
