Friends and family celebrated the life and unpretentious spirit of Mary Richardson Kennedy today at the estate in northern Westchester County, N.Y., where she died, The New York Times reports.

The estranged wife of Robert Kennedy Jr. was found dead Wednesday afternoon after police were called to her home in Mount Kisco, 30 miles north of New York City.

Multiple news outlets reported that Kennedy, who struggled with depression, hanged herself in an outbuilding at her home. The Westchester County medical examiner’s office confirmed on Thursday afternoon that the cause of her death was asphyxiation due to hanging.

“A lot of times I don’t know how she made it through the day. She was in a lot of agony for a lot of her life,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said Thursday, according to The New York Times.

Ms. Kennedy’s brother, Lawrence Richardson, issued a statement on behalf of her siblings.

“We deeply regret the death of our beloved sister Mary, whose radiant and creative spirit will be sorely missed by those who loved her. Our heart goes out to her children, who she loved without reservation,” the statement said.
