Kerby Dent Obituary

Kerby RaEllen Dent, is the daughter of Brenda Dent, she was born in Birmingham, Alabama on November 8,1984.

Kerby has two sisters, one brother and she is the youngest of  the 4 children.  Kerby  was always a vibrant and active person that lived her life fully before her illness attacked her body.

 Kerby accepted Christ at the young age of 10 years old and was baptized at the Mount Olive Baptist Church in Tarpley City, Alabama. 

Kerby graduated from Hueytown High School and  attended Lawson State Junior  College, Miles College and Alabama A&M.   

Kerby will be remembered as a devoted mother to her son Khylan, a  loving sister , a beloved daughter  and a compassionate and generous person to her family and friends .  She was a character and every member of her family had a memory, of something that will make you laugh.  She was  determined to live. Kerby fought very hard to stay mobile inspite of her progressive and life altering illness, that she endured for 17 years. Her will to live was unmeasurable. God prepared a caregiver designed specifically for Kerby , that loved her dearly, as only a mother could.  God gave Kerby Grace and Mercy everyday of her journey, until it was her time to go.  On December 16th Kerby became a whole person again, in her body and mind as she transitioned to be with the Lord.

Praise the Lord because his Mercy does endure forever.
