Obituary for Letty M. Kemp

Letty M. Kemp, 92, of Waterloo, died Friday, June 21, at the Western Home Communities, Windhaven Assisted Living Center in Cedar Falls.

She was born March 1, 1927, in Winthrop, daughter of Judson B. and Helen I. Frentress Miller. She married Neal Vincent Kemp on June 1, 1946, in Waterloo. He died on January 29, 1987.

Letty graduated from West High School. She was a secretary and bookkeeper for Friendship Village, retiring in 1989.

She was a member of St. Edward Catholic Church, Catholic Daughters of the Americas, and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

She is survived by a son, Richard (Karen) Kemp of Tripoli; three daughters, Helen (William Bisbee) Kemp of Waterloo, Beverly (Scott Giese) Kemp of Middleton, WI, and Jane (Harvey) Kemp Ulfers of Waterloo; 12 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband.

Mass of Christian Burial, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 24, at St. Edward Catholic Church with entombment in the Mt. Olivet Mausoleum. A rosary will be held at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday followed by visitation from 4 to 7:00 p.m. at Hagarty-Waychoff-Grarup Funeral Service on South Street with a 7:00 p.m. vigil service. Visitation will continue at the church for an hour before services on Wednesday.

Memorials may be directed to Saint Edward Catholic Church or Unity Point Hospice.

The most important things in Letty’s life were her family and faith. She was an avid quilter and crafter and would drop anything to play a game of cards. For 30 years she wintered at Adobe Wells in McAllen, Texas, where she enjoyed golf, shopping, and a large circle of friends.
