Betty Holcombe Kenny
August 3, 1940 – April 7, 2021
BETTY H. KENNY CAME FACE TO FACE WITH HER LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST ON APRIL 7, 2021 AT THE AGE OF 80. FOR THE PAST 11 YEARS BETTY SUFFERED FROM A VERY RARE HEART AND LUNG CONDITION.
BETTY WAS BORN AND RAISED IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND WAS PRECEDED IN DEATH BY HER PARENTS, ANNIE SARGENT HOLCOMBE AND J.M. HOLCOMBE, HER THREE BROTHERS, THOMAS HOLCOMBE, REV, CECIL HOLCOMBE AND WALLACE HOLCOMBE AND HER BROTHER-IN-LAW, FEGAN KENNY.
BETTY LEFT BEHIND HER BELOVED HUSBAND, F. DENNIS KENNY, WHOM SHE LOVED DEARLY AND TO WHOM SHE HAD BEEN MARRIED 51 YEARS. SHE ALSO LEFT BEHIND DANA KENNY, PAT AND CHRISTY KENNY, ALONG WITH MANY NIECES AND NEPHEWS ON BOTH SIDES THAT SHE HELD DEAR IN HER HEART. ADDITIONALLY SHE LEFT MANY DEAR FRIENDS LOCALLY AND AROUND THE WORLD THAT WERE LIKE FAMILY TO HER. HER GREATEST DESIRE IS THAT EACH OF THEM WILL MEET HER JUST INSIDE THE EASTERN GATE IN HEAVEN WHERE SHE WILL BE WAITING FOR THEM.
AFTER MANY YEARS IN A BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT, WHERE SHE ACQUIRED MANY AWARDS, THE LORD CALLED HER INTO CHRISTIAN MINISTRY. SHE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED WITH CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS, WAS A SPEAKER FOR CHURCH GROUPS, AND FOR MANY YEARS SHE LED BIBLE STUDIES BOTH HERE AND ABROAD. HER LOVE FOR THE LORD WAS EVIDENT TO EVERYONE SHE MET.
DURING THEIR MARRIAGE, SHE AND DENNIS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE IN HONG KONG FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THEY ALSO LOVED HOBBIES SUCH AS FLYING, BOATING, READING, INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL AND RAISING ARABIAN SHOW HORSES.
SHE AND DENNIS WERE MEMBERS OF COLLIERVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH.

A Beautiful soul .She was so kind and gentle to everyone she met. I will never forget her meekness and boldness. She enjoyed talking about the lord. I enjoyed the time we shared. Rest in Heaven.

I'm so grateful to have met someone so beautiful inside and out . Most of all she knew Christ and was always found witnessing to anyone that crossed her path . She will surely be missed. Rest in heaven .
