Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 15, 1897
Tipton County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1991
Texas, USA

Rhodie Bertha Marsh Kemp was born March 15 1897, Tipton County, Tennessee to George W. Lafayette "Fate" Marsh and Cynthia Charlotte Roe. She married James Robert (J.R.) Kemp January 1, 1917 in Poinsett County, Arkansas.

Her children were all born in Poinsett County Arkansas. The Kemps were farmers and during the devastating 1927 and 1930 floods, lost everything. Although they stayed and continued to farm,1937 news of more flooding prompted the Kemps move to Forest and Goodwill communities in Louisiana. Rhodie and J. R. Kemp built a little country store in the Goodwill. Community.

Their children:
Oliver C Kemp
Dorothy A Kemp [Reed]
James T Kemp
Billy J Kemp
Effie Imogene Kemp [Skipper]
Ershelle Kemp [Rose]

Rhodie Kemp was a little short bundle of a woman. She gave her life to the Lord when she was about 63. Although an awesome person before her salvation, she was transformed into an prayer warrior. She read her bible thru' at least 6 times a year. Her day ALWAYS began and ended with prayer. She called EVERY CHILD and their families names OUT LOUD, in her prayer time.

Aside from her great food (especially the Peanut Butter cake), hearing her pray is one of my fondest memories.
