    Our deepest sympathy to Janine Kerr in the recent passing of her step-mother Doris Munsch.  She passed away Sunday, October 24. Services will be held in Grand Prairie, Texas later this week.

    Janine is a Banner Student Instructional Specialist on the South Campus.

    Below was submitted from Janine

    My step-mother, Doris Munsch, passed away Sunday, October 24 after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for eight years.  She was an elementary school teacher for over 30 years before retirement.  We watched this terrible disease steal away her memories of us all.  The Doris we knew and loved has been gone for some time, but the body she lived in has now found rest and peace.  Through all this, we have learned to love more deeply, live more fully and savor each moment God gives us.  Services will be held in Grand Prairie, Texas later this week.
