The Missing Kennedy: Rosemary Kennedy and the Secret Bonds of Four Women

Rosemary Kennedy, the younger sister of President John F. Kennedy, was lobotomized in 1941 at the age of 23. She was then put out of public view at a remote facility in rural Wisconsin, where, for more than twenty years, she remained unvisited by family and non-family alike.

In 1962, Elizabeth (Liz) Koehler-Pentacoff and her parents began visiting Rosemary on a regular basis and continued for the next thirty-four years. Through their friendship, Liz discovered the Kennedy child many had forgotten or had never known.

In 2015, ten years after Rosemary’s death, Liz came forward with a fascinating book about the hidden daughter of America’s royal Kennedy family. (Amazon)

What does a father do when one of his children does not quite live up to the high, extremely high, standards he insists upon? Well, if that father is of one of the wealthiest and most influential men in the world, he orders a lobotomy for the pretty 23 year old problem child.

In order to ‘better’ the unsettling and constantly worrisome situation with his first daughter, Joe Kennedy made a doctor’s appointment for Rosemary for a neurosurgical procedure that would calm her mood swings and quiet her sudden outburst of violence. Without telling his wife and children, Joe delivered Rosemary into the hands of the men that would ultimately change Rosemary Kennedy’s life forever.
