Janey Naomi Kaempfe-Higgs, 58, of Leonardtown, MD, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2016 surrounded by her family at Hospice House of St. Mary's in Callaway MD. Janey was born on March 22, 1957 in Illinois and moved to Maryland in 1990.
Those who knew Janey know she lived life to the fullest prior to her illness taking a long toll on her health. She was kind, caring and was always there to help those dear to her heart. Janey and Larry had many friends whom they cherished and played such an important part in their life together. They shared many years dedicated to each other and building memories in the beautiful life they built together.
Her brightest time in her life was the birth of her only child, Angel, whom she adored from the minute she was born. Despite her illness she was able to fight long enough to see her daughter grow into an amazing, accomplished young lady. Her spirit and dedication to Angel will always be with our family.
Janey is survived by her loving husband, Joseph Lawrence "Larry" Higgs Sr.; her daughter, Angel Maria Higgs; five stepchildren: Wendy Tippett (Tom), Joseph Lawrence Higgs Jr. (Pam), Sherry Hutson (Carter), Jennifer Hemming, and Terie Perez (Greg); 10 step-grandchildren: Kevin Gray, Kimberly Johnson, Kristopher Gray, Heather Higgs, Joey Higgs, Julie Hutson, Brendan Wahl, Jessica Perez, Gregory Perez and Justin Perez; and five great-grandchildren: Olivia, Colton, Isabella, Skylar and Kaylie. She is also survived by her dear friends Debbie and Jimbo Burroughs whom she thought of as the sister and brother-in-law she never had. She is preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Hannah Gimpleson and stepson, John Walter Higgs.
Family will receive friends for Janey's Life Celebration on Friday, February 12, 2016 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., with a Service of Remembrance at 3:00 p.m., at Brinsfield Funeral Home, 22955 Hollywood Road, Leonardtown, MD 20650.
