She was preceded in death by her husband of 74 years, Beverly R. Kemp, and son, William B. “Billy” Kemp.

She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Linda J. Kemp; three granddaughters, Charlene (Morris), Billie Jean (Chris) and Penny (Cheslie); nine great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews, and a brother, Darrell McCullers.
