Obituary Condolences

Lee G. Kershner October 3, 1928-January 31, 2016

Mrs. Kershner is survived by her children, Vlae Kershner (Jacquie), Menlo Park, CA and, Tempra Wilson (Daniel), Meridian, ID; grandchildren, Christopher, Katrina and Kailen Kershner; cousins, V. Gilbert Beers, Elgin, IL and Karen Cord Taylor, Boston, MA.

Mrs. Kershner was born in Chicago and spent happy summers in Vermillion County, Ill. After moving to Las Cruces in 1997 to enjoy the year-round sunshine, Lee encountered the vibrant Hispanic culture which had been ignored in U S history books. She was especially impressed with the citizens of Mesilla who had managed to preserve their heritage with pride and dignity maintaining a small town ambiance that was similar to the small towns in Illinois where she had spent much of her childhood. Her profound desire was for more Hispanics to research and develop their unique contributions in the settlement of our great country's melting pot. Arrangements have been entrusted to La Paz-Graham's Funeral Home.
