My favorite.

She is a descendant of the Kennedy's. Her mother was a Kennedy.

But she still uses the name? Maybe she doesn't...it's just being reported this way so it's a story.

"Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean"

She probably was known as Maeve McKean, and had Kennedy in her name as an homage to the family legacy.

This story all seemed very odd to me.

Well... that's what they get for not staying home like the rest of us.

It may be a tabloid that mentions the 'curse',
but damn, that is one jinxed family...
(shakes head)...

No offense to the deceased but being out on the ocean in a canoe at this time of year is simply stupid. If you were right next to shore - maybe excusable but that water is COLD. Canoe's are not stable watercraft at all either. No reason to be out there outside boredom. I wonder if they even had life jackets on?
