Shirley Kemp

December 10, 1956 — November 24, 2020

Dallas, Texas

Born December 10, 1956 to Huey Sr. and Ever Jewel Hamilton, Mrs. Shirley Hamilton-Kemp was the fifth of six children. The family attended Marsalis Avenue Church of Christ, where she was baptized in August of 1980. After being educated in the Dallas Independent School District, she became one of the first black women to work behind the jewelry counter in the Sanger Harris store of downtown Dallas. Later, she worked and retired from Bank of America after 25 years of service. Mrs. Shirley met the love of her life, Anthony Kemp Sr., in November of 1972; furthermore, they remained inseparable for the next forty-eight years. However, her best and most valued accomplishments would be her two sons, Everett (Yolanda) and Anthony Jr. (Natasha); along with two daughters, Sharonda and Annette (Kenneth). Being loved and endearingly referred to as “Nana” by Jessica, Shadae, Jarrett, Noah, Kameron and her six great grandchildren. Mrs. Shirley was preceded in death by her father and mother; Kenneth (brother); Jessica (granddaughter); Joshua (grandson); Vernon III and Reginald (nephews). Aside from the Kemp Clan, she leaves to cherish her memory, sisters Rosemary (Henry), Linda (John), and Diana; brother Huey (Dianne); and a host of nieces, nephews, friends and extended family. Today, the Kemp family lays to rest their Queen and Matriarch. Rest well Mommy.
