Guinevere Ussery

August 11, 1937February 4, 2021

Guinevere Hogan-Ussery, 83, went to be with her Heavenly Father on February 4, 2021. She was born on August 11, 1937 to the late Zim Walden and Alice (Cullins) Hampton. She graduated from Noblesville High School before attending Ball State University. She worked for the Army Finance Center in Indianapolis and Haynes International before working at Delco Electronics for 28 years. After retiring, she went to work at the Kinsey Juvenile Detention Center in Kokomo. Guinevere and her husband then moved to Las Vegas for twenty years, before moving back to Kokomo to be closer to family.

She loved traveling, spoiling her grandchildren, and just loved life. She was a very positive person. Starting in eighth grade as a cheerleader, then her personality grew bigger throughout her life. She had aspirations at one time to be a nun, but her parents said no. Then she wanted to join the military, but her parents said no. In the end, she chose to be a wonderful wife and mother. Guin had an eye for decorating and loved to shop. Any house she moved into, she immediately made it a home. When it came to gift-giving, she made sure to purchase something that you truly wanted. She was an unselfish, giving, loving person.

Guinevere is preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Patsy Hogan.

Surviving are her husband, Leroy Ussery; her children, Denise R. Hogan-Brown (Harvey), Nevada, Robert Hogan Jr (Laquita), Nevada, Tyrone Ussery (Charline), Tennessee, Leandre Ussery, Kokomo, Troy Ussery (Yolanda), Kokomo, Eric Ussery (Cynthia), Tennessee, and Juanita Ussery, Kokomo; two brothers, Larry Hampton (Gerry), Noblesville, and Timothy Hampton, Noblesville; three sister-in-laws who are considered sisters, Lynn Hogan-Washington, Toshiko Hogan, and Gladys Hogan, all of Kokomo; nineteen grandchildren, and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Services for Guinevere will be held at 11am on Saturday, February 13 at Greater Mt. Olive Temple, 600 E Alto Rd, Kokomo, with Evangelist Robin Clark officiating. An hour of visitation will be held prior to the service, also at the church. Guinevere will be laid to rest at Crown Point Cemetery.

The family of Guinevere Hogan Ussery wishes to thank everyone for their kindness, prayers, and thoughtfulness during this difficult time. A family luncheon will be provided downstairs of the church following the service.
