Obituary ~ Alice K. (Lane) Chesworth
August 10, 1910 ~ June 05, 2006

Independence, Jackson County, Missouri
June 07, 2006

Alice Chesworth, 95, of Independence, passed away peacefully on June 5, 2006, at the Rosewood Health Center, while listening to her grandson, Don Chesworth III, sing hymns of their faith.

Alice was a dedicated and caring wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who gave her life in service to her family, her church and her community through the ministry of music and teaching. She was still singing solos in church and teaching young children how to read when she was 92-years-old. We will all miss her.

Alice was preceded in death by her parents, Clara (Belle) and Arthur Lane; her husband of 46 years, Donald Chesworth who died in 1981; and her two sisters, Thelma Silsby and Grace Kanawyer.

She is survived by her son, Don and his wife Catherine of Rochester, NY; her grandchildren, Cynthia Grace Thompson and husband, John, of Raleigh, NC; Deborah Katheryn Bardeen and husband, Christopher, of Raleigh, NC, Donald Chesworth III of Princeton, NJ, and their mother, Carol Gibson of Raleigh, NC. She is also survived by two great grandchildren, Haydon Andrew Thompson and Savannah Lane Thompson of Raleigh, NC; her nieces, Junia Braby and Margaret Grice of Independence; her nephews, Jim Silsby of Lamoni, IA and Jim Kanawyer of Premont, CA.

Service will be June 8 in the Groves Community Chapel. A graveside service will be June 9, at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Lamoni, IA.
