“Blessed are those who keep his testimonies and seek Him with their whole heart.”
Our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend has passed peacefully into the
arms of her loving savior Jesus Christ. While our hearts ache with her absence our minds are
blessed in knowing that she has finally found Eternal Glory with her loving husband of 60 years,
Richard (Dick) who built their home for 52 years in St. Ann, MO; mother & father, Inez & A.O.
DuBois; sister, Nancy Carlson and so many other family members and friends who proceeded
her in graduaRon to everlasRng peace.
Her life has been a celebraRon of love for the many family members she nurtured throughout
her life including her brother Jon DuBois. Daughters Debra Williams (husband Curt Croom) and
Donna Kaminski (partner David Helwig) and son Rick (wife Kathleen Brown) find comfort in the
many memories that create a legacy of a life well-lived in loving service to her many church
friends, neighbors and family in Kirkwood, MO; McKinney, TX and Morro Bay, CA. She is
survived by a close-knit family of 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
Mom loved and excelled at so many of life’s simple pleasures. Gardening, cooking, baking and
kni\ng are just some of the many talents she shared & passed on to her family. But her
favorite joy in life was taking care of kids, especially babies. She worked Rrelessly for many
years at the Fee Fee BapRst church nursery and VacaRon Bible School. Her faith in Jesus Christ
endured many trials. Her favorite Bible verse was Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your
heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall
direct your path.” She excelled at sharing the love of Jesus through her acRons, words, and
good deeds. Kindness and selflessness were her greatest spiritual gids. No task was too
demeaning for her to tackle with enthusiasm, from sweeping the decks at her neighborhood
swimming pool, raking leaves or picking up trash as she biked each morning through the
community where she lived for the past 12 years, in McKinney TX. She loved to sing & whistle
as she worked, and she was blessed with an infecRous laugh that exuded the joy and love she
felt for so many people.
A celebraRon of her life will be deferred unRl late spring or early summer when family and
friends will gather in St. Louis to share their favorite memories.
