Nona P. Kemp (nee Riddell), age 91, entered into the Kingdom of Heaven to rejoin her husband John, on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14, 2017.

Nona was raised in Corinth, Mississippi and married her beloved husband, John, at the age of 15. After their wedding, they resided in Corinth for 15 years, later moving to Crest Hill, Illinois where they resided for 30 years.

Eventually they moved back to Corinth for their last 15 years together before John’s passing. Nona’s family was most important to her. She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother who was always giving to others. Nona was a strong lady who was an excellent homemaker. Church was a very essential part of her life where she was happy to be active and involved. Nona also enjoyed gardening and canning her yield. She was a great story teller and always kept the attention of her audience with a brilliant imagination. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
