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.
