OBITUARY: Erica Faye Kemp

Erica was born February 15, 1987 in Wilson County, to Michael and Teresa Watkins Kemp.

In 2015, she made a public profession of faith in Christ Jesus, and was later baptized into the fellowship of Rocky Valley Baptist Church. Erica loved her family. As a child, she enjoyed many great moments with her cousins, all of whom were more like her siblings.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by children: Kyla, Harlee, and Callie Jo Douglas; their father, Chad Douglas; and baby Avah Richmond; her father, Ryan Richmond; brother, Jacob Kemp; paternal grandmother, Ruth Kemp; and a host of extended family.
