Ms. Janet Kymer
Ms. Janet Kymer, 51, died peacefully in her home Friday, Oct. 22, 2004, after a courageous battle with cancer. A lifelong resident of Fort Smith, she was the daughter of Mrs. Barbara Kymer and the late Bob Kymer.
Janet attended Kimmons Junior High School and graduated in 1971 from Northside High School. A cheerleader at Kimmons, she was active in the French Club and the Junior Council during her high school days.
After one year at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, she completed the nursing program at Westark Community College, now UA Fort Smith. A registered nurse for more than 30 years, she worked in offices of local physicians, both hospitals, the health department and nursing homes.
A nurturer and caregiver by nature, she was often generous to a fault. At nursing homes, she was particularly sensitive to those residents who did not have frequent visitors or needed items not otherwise provided. She loved people, her friends in particular; also reading, Mexican food, music and the color purple. She enjoyed fishing — so much that she always carried an inflatable boat and fishing gear with her. Her friends recall that she was the champion “hula hoopster” among them. A true Arkansan, she was an avid Razorback fan.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by her husband, Steve Chafin; one sister, Patti Kymer of Little Rock; one brother, Ricky Kymer of Paris; and five nieces, Carly and Amy Kymer of Fort Smith and Emily, Abbi and Elle Kymer-Davis of Little Rock.
Funeral service is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. at Lewis Funeral Home Chapel, 4817 Kelley Highway, conducted by Chaplain Jane Kennedy. Burial will be at Roselawn Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Neal Hefner, Steve Knight, Pierce Farris, David Whitt, B.J. Davis and Ron Cole.
Following the service, friends are invited to visit with the family at the home of David and Jan Whitt, 9008 Copper Oaks, Fort Smith (Canterbury Cove).
Memorial contributions may be made to the Humane Society of Sebastian County, P.O. Box 10953, Fort Smith. Janet loved cats, particularly the four she leaves behind.
