District Attorney Law Library Named For Anne M. Kendall

12:00AM / Wednesday, August 09, 2006

Pittsfield - A Berkshire County District Attorney's Office law library has been named in honor of a long-time assistant district attorney who died in 1999.

The Anne M. Kendall Memorial Library was dedicated during a June ceremony, according to information provided by District Attorney David F. Capeless. Those in attendance included Kendall's husband Richard Kendall of Dalton, daughter Katherine, who is a student at Providence College, son James, who is a student at the Wahconah regional High School, her parents James and Anne Kilsheimer, her brother and sister-in-law James and Susan Kilsheimer, and personal friends and district attorney office staff members.

A photograph of Kendall and a plaque honoring her were unveiled during the ceremony.

Kendall's association with the Berkshire County District Attorney's Office began in 1984, when Kendall served as a legal intern. After graduation from the Western New England School of Law in 1985, she was hired as an assistant district attorney by former Berkshire County District Attorney Anthony Ruberto. Kendall was promoted to district court coordinator in 1989 and in 1990, former Berkshire County District Attorney Gerard D. Downing named Kendall second district attorney. She was also given a Chief of Appeals title, and served in that capacity until the time of her death in November 1999.

Kendall died from complications associated with cancer, according to information from Capeless' office.

"It is only fitting that the law library be dedicated to Anne," Capeless said in a prepared statement. "Although an accomplished trial attorney, she devoted much of her time and energy to legal research and the ongoing education of the office's more junior prosecutors. her example and guidance were instrumental in the development of so many assistant district attorneys. Anne will be much missed but well remembered."
