Kempter, Beverly, Saginaw, Michigan

Our beloved mother and grandmother passed away July 11, 2012, at her home at the age of 84 years. Beverly was born November 30, 1927, in Battle Creek, MI to the late Andrew and Dorothy (Hopkins) VanDee. She married Stanley Kempter on January 4, 1947. He predeceased her June 20, 2002. She enjoyed working outside and will still be raking and shoveling up in heaven. She is survived by her children, Ronald (Kennie) Kempter, Judith Kempter, Tom (Cathie) Kempter, and Pat (Stephen) Martin; 5 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; and grand dog, Skiddles. Bev was blessed with terrific neighbors/ friends, like the Maddox family, Rob Tubb Jr. and family, Bill Poineau, and Don Emeott, that provided her love and help throughout the years. She was predeceased by her brother Eldon. The family would like to thank Covenant VNA Hospice, especially Katie and Barb, for the wonderful care they provided to Bev. Committal services will take place on Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Roselawn Memorial Gardens. Friends may join the family for the committal at the chapel from 10:30 a.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Covenant VNA Hospice.
