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

September 14, 1953 – St. Thomas, Ontario

August 5, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta


Kerry Jane Sorrenti (nee Maloney) passed away suddenly in Calgary on Saturday, August 5th, 2023.

Barely a month before her 70th birthday, she will be missed by her husband of forty years Jordan; her two sons, Liam and Paddy and daughter-in-law Tara, and granddaughter Rosie. She will also be missed by her siblings; Peter and wife Kathy, Mary Flint (nee Maloney) and her husband John, and brother John and his wife Pat, and their families in ON.

Everyone will miss Kerry’s wonderful hospitality, love for music and passion for books. Growing up in St. Thomas ON, the family moved to Windsor when Kerry was a pre-teen. She went to the University of Windsor ON and graduated with a degree in Honours Science and a Teaching degree.

She met Jordan when he was a fledgling restaurateur in London ON. They married and moved to Calgary in 1986 owning and operating several restaurants, Sorrenti’s Restaurant, Sorrenti’s Catering and Paddy’s Barbecue & Brewery. They bought a cottage on Gabriola in the mid-nineties which they replaced with their lovely home in 2003. And anyone who ever had the pleasure of being entertained by Kerry and Jordan, will remember her amazing skill at curating her antiquities and making her home unique and welcoming.

Living back in Calgary, Kerry enjoyed her volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity, who knew she could build a house.
