Kerry Eileen Buckland, a devoted mother of 5 and life-long residence of Manchester, CT died on February 3, 2022, after her battle with Covid-19 at the age of 49. 
She was born in Manchester on October 9, 1972 to Arthur and Barbara (Harbron) Bodin. She graduated Manchester High School in 1990 and was a beloved friend of many. Kerry became a mother to her first child on March 9, 1993 and made it her mission to be an exceptional mother to her soon to be 5 children, and to all those in need around her. She did everything in her power to give them the best life possible, full of smiles and laughter, and succeeded in her mission. 
Kerry loved spending time with her children, friends, and loved ones around her. She would often spend her free time relaxing and enjoying Lifetime Movie Network or playing cards with friends and loved ones. She loved cooking and was always finding new recipes to make for her friends and family. If you knew her you knew that whenever you were in her house you always had a full stomach. She always enjoyed the little things in life; she loved the beach in the summer and going out with her family whenever she could, even if it was just to get some quick breakfast. 
Kerry is survived by her father Arthur Bodin, and his wife Linda; sister Melanie Bodin; children, Trevor Buckland, Leah Buckland, Benjamin Buckland, Maryjane Buckland, and Grace Buckland. As well as her granddaughter Lily Caro. She is predeceased by her mother Barbara Bodin.  
To those who didn't know her as Kerry or mom, she was known as GG (greatest grandma). She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and loved ones.
