Obituary for Selena Kinman

May 23, 2021
ROCKLAND, Massachusetts


Selena (Foley) Kinman, 80, of Rockland, passed away peacefully at her home on May 23, 2021 after bravely battling cancer.

Born and raised in Dorchester, she was the daughter of Frederick T. Foley and Bridget (Fitzpatrick) Foley from Newfoundland, Canada. She was a graduate of the former Saint Patrick's High School in Roxbury and had been employed by the Rockland Public schools before retiring as the Food Service Director.

Selena was an avid reader, teapot collector and involved in her children and grandchildren's activities and adventures. She was passionate about staying active and would walk several miles each day. Accompanied by a friend, she was a daily morning fixture for many with a wave, smile and conversation.

She is survived by her beloved and devoted husband of 59 years, Luther Kinman, her children Jeffrey Kinman of Hanson, Michele Bissonnette and her husband Gary of Rockland, Suzanne MacNeil of Birmingham, MI, and Zachary Kinman of Rockland. She was a doting and proud grandmother to Rachael and Sydney. She is also survived by her sisters Lucille Foley, Mary Cook, brother Joseph Foley and sister-in-law Helen Foley. She is predeceased by her brothers Frederick and Robert Foley, sisters Teresa and Barbara Foley and son-in-law Derek MacNeil. She will be sadly missed by her prized Scottish Folds, Foley and Lenard.
Services will be private. The Kinman Family is eternally grateful to Hospice of the South Shore for all of their support. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Hospice of the South Shore, 30 Reservoir Park Drive, Rockland Ma. 02370.
