Frances Naomi Kemp
Frances Naomi KempVioletFrances Naomi Kemp, age 94 of Somersville died Monday afternoon, April 9, 2012 at Memorial Hospital of Union County.  She was born February 6, 1918 in New Holland to the late James Edward and Frances (Shipley) Anderson.  The youngest of eight children, she was preceded in death by her three sisters and four brothers.  She was also preceded in death by a grandson, Terry Allen Kemp.

On August 12, 1937 she married Delton Kemp in Washington Court House and he died February 24, 2012.  Frances and Delton were enthusiastic collectors of antiques.  She was a loving wife and mother, committed to family and farming.  She was a strong, affectionate woman who was a master basket maker and collector of historic buttons, and leaves the legacy of hard work and belief that a person never has enough flowers.

I am in shock - I am so sorry to hear about Delton and Fannie.  Mother sent me his obit; I just received it yesterday and pulled up this site and couldn't believe it.  I have been wanting to call or write you all; I am currently on a 60 day tour in Memphis with the Army Corps of Engineers and cannot come home or I would be there with you all.  I hope neither suffered.  My heart is with the entire family.  Upon my return, I shall gather up Mother and come to visit you.  I am thanking of you . . .
