Our hearts are shattered by the loss of our beloved Saoirse. Her life was filled with hope, promise and love. She cared deeply about friends and family, especially her mother Courtney, her father Paul, her stepmother Stephanie, and her grandmother Ethel, who said, “The world is a little less beautiful today.” She lit up our lives with her love, her peals of laughter and her generous spirit. Saoirse was passionately moved by the causes of human rights and women’s empowerment and found great joy in volunteer work, working alongside indigenous communities to build schools in Mexico. We will love her and miss her forever.
Commenters sent their condolences to the family members and prayed that Saoirse’s soul would rest in peace. Some commenters also attested to her kind heart and beautiful soul.
SAOIRSE HILL KENNEDY’S DEATH
Saoirse was the only child of Paul and Courtney Hill, and granddaughter of Robert Kennedy, a former U.S Presidential candidate, who was assassinated in 1968, in the run-up to the presidential elections.
The family made a statement confirming Saoirse’s death after reports emanated that a person was found unresponsive at the Kennedy Compound in Massachusetts. Police had also answered a call from the compound in response to a likely drug overdose.
However, the family’s statement did not give the cause of death. Saoirse once admitted that she was suffering from depression. She revealed this in a statement in 2016, where she said that her depression started when she was in middle school and would remain with her for the rest of her life.
Her death remains shocking to her friends and family, and they would surely miss her very much. All thoughts are with the Kennedy Family as they go through this difficult time.
