D. Areti Kemp Obituary
After a long battle with Parkinson's disease, Areti passed away on July 25, 2012 at the age of 82. She was comfortable at home surrounded by family, friends and the love of her life. Despite the challenges she faced, she handled life with dignity, strength and kindness until the very end. Areti was born on December 18, 1929 in Los Angeles, CA and was the oldest of 4 girls. She attended Inglewood High School, which was where she met her future husband, Stan. Areti and Stan became not only partners in life, but also in business. They owned and operated Kemp Monument Company in Inglewood, CA for nearly 50 years together. They were married for over 60 wonderful, love filled years. Anyone who was fortunate enough to know Areti would say that she was the most kind, loving and generous person they had ever met. There wasn't anything she wouldn't do for anyone. She had a sign hanging in her office that read, "Success is not measured by the amount of money in your bank account, but by the content of your children's character". Her greatest joys in life were her children and grandchildren. Areti's kind and gentle spirit will continue to live on in those whose lives were blessed by her presence. Areti is survived by her adoring husband, Stan; daughter, Denise (Ray); son, Stan (Susie); 4 grandchildren, Jessica, Angela (John), Shaun and Nicholas; and great granddaughter, Alyssa; and sisters, Diana (Elmer) and Betty. In lieu of flowers, we would request you make a donation to the Michael J. Fox foundation: Grand Central Station, Post Office Box 4777, NY, NY 10163-In Memory of Areti Kemp.
