mrs. frances kennon
Sister Frances Nious Kennon was the oldest child born to the late Rev. Vernon and Robbie Nious in San Antonio, Texas. Our beloved mother entered her Earthly Life on July 16, 1932 and entered her Eternal Life on September 17, 2016 in San Antonio, Texas. Frances attended San Antonio Public School and graduated from Phillis Wheatley High in the Class of 1950. Her favorite subjects were home economics, cooking and sewing. Shortly after graduating she was united in Holy Matrimony to Troy Kennon, Sr. on October 15, 1950. The couple relocated to Detroit, Michigan in pursuit of better job opportunities. She was a young brave warrior leaving her small hometown heading to the Big City to begin her Life Journey. She began her Christian journey at Memorial Baptist Church under the auspices of Rev. Vernon Nious, Sr. She later united with East St. Matthew Baptist Church under the auspices of her uncle, Rev. L. J. Nious. Mother accepted Christ at a very early age, and thus, wanted to re-dedicate her life to the Lord by being baptized again by Rev. Charles Nious. Sister Frances was a faithful member and servant working on several ministries at East St. Matthew. She was a soft spoken loving person who loved everyone. Her husband, Troy Kennon (2006), daughter, Denise Kennon (1976) and sister Betty Brown (2003) preceded her in death. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Deborah Horton(Las Vegas), Theresa Jordan (San Antonio), Sharon Omesiete(San Antonio), Pamela Kennon (San Antonio), Beverly Kennon(San Antonio), Veronica (Verner) Mitchell (Memphis, TN), Troy Kennon, Jr. (San Antonio), Travis Kennon (Las Vegas); her grandchildren, Curtis, Malika, Wendell, Lakeshia, Denesia, Osita, Meioshia, Jared and Courtney, her great grandchildren, Christopher, Nicholas, Jakeria, Keitana, Jayla and Jarius; her great-great grandson Christian King; her sisters and brothers, Vernon (Dean) Nious (Detroit, MI), Barbara Miller (Dallas), Robert Nious(San Antonio)Rev.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.   Find strength and comfort from God.  At  2 Corinthians  1:3, 4  it describes God as “the God of all comfort who comfort us in all our trials”.  This promise assures the family that by turning to God you can receive help during this difficult time.

  2. Be COMFORTED in knowing GOD is our refuge and strength. Psalms 24:1 tells us that this earth and all of us that are living here is THE LORDS So, He has claimed His own child , our sister Frances. We loved her but she could not stay. We will miss her. She was such a dear SISTER and FRIEND. We SHARED so many things including the same birthmonth. Her CALM SWEET Spirit is with us as her soul RESTS in Jesus “for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord “. GOD BLESS THE FAMILY.
