Betty Ann Farrer Kemp

Wrens, GA  –              Betty Ann Farrer Kemp, 88, entered into her eternal rest Saturday afternoon, May 21, 2016 at her daughter’s residence in North Augusta. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 A.M., Wednesday morning, May 25, 2016 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Jerry Byrd officiating. Interment will follow in the Ways Baptist Church Cemetery.

Betty was one of six children born to the late Nellie Gay Farrer and the late Asa Farrer in Jefferson County. She was baptized in Brushy Creek and was a member of St. Clair Baptist Church. She, a strong-willed, godly woman, enjoyed music, sewing, cooking, gardening and flowers. A generous, caring person, Betty had a servant’s heart and helped those in need in any way she could. She was a very active person who loved to stay busy. Betty was a loyal friend and loving mother who loved her family unconditionally—her greatest pleasure was spending time with her family.

Betty is also preceded in death by two children, Gloria Browning and Frank Williams; and four siblings, Asa Farrer Jr., Tressie Hardy, Doris Williford and Mary Chance. Survivors include her children, Robert McNair (Ann), Donald “Scottie” Williams (Debbie), Carolyn Williams Johnson, Marie Ledbetter (Herbert), Bettie Williams, Teresa Renee Rish (Eddie); her brother, Jimmy Farrer; fifteen grandchildren; twenty-four great grandchildren; seven great-great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and friends. Serving as pallbearers will be Keith Bailey, Kyle Bailey, Dennis Farrer, Caleb Ledbetter, Bobby McNair and Dallas Snowden.

The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00 P.M., Tuesday evening, May 24, 2016.


Legacy of Love
A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife, not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
