Virginia R Kennemer

May 15, 1934 — August 28, 2013

VIRGINIA RUTH SUMMERS KENNEMER, 79, of Paris, entered heavens gates on Wednesday, August 28, 2013. She was looking forward to heaven so Jesus could give her a hug and wipe away her tears and pain.

Starrett Funeral Home will conduct funeral services at 11 a.m. on Saturday August 31, 2013 at Bethel Temple Church, 1315 S.E. Loop 286, with pastors Ralph and Virginia Taylor officiating. Interment will follow at Meadowbrook Gardens, with a luncheon to follow.

The body will lie in repose at the church for one hour prior to the service, where the family will receive friends from 10:00 a.m. until service time.

Mom loved to read and paint but was happiest being with her children and grandchildren. She was an awesome mom and Nana; the best. She delighted in her grandchildren, who caused her smile to shine the most. She was always sweet, kind, and encouraging. She will be missed by friends and family but we released her to the care of sweet Jesus in heaven. All of our love, all of our life.

She was preceded in death by parents, Cassie Carlton and Etta Summers; infants twin siblings, Ray and Faye Summers; sister, Violet Davis; brother, Jack Summers; and a loving husband, Roland Neal Kennemer.

She was a very loving mother of two daughters, Debra Gifford and husband, Kenny, and Susan Walker and husband, Bob; and a son, David Neal Kennemer. She was a very loved and adored grandmother of Kevin and Jenna Gifford, Jake Morgan, Alex and Ryne Walker, Haden Kennemer and Aaron Greer.

"One thing I have desired of the Lord, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Psalm 27
