Ann Gourrier Kleinpeter Obituary
"Her children rise up and call her blessed," Our loving wife, mother, grandmother passed away Monday, August 4, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was the consummate people person who never met a stranger. She so dearly loved her years working at the courthouse with Judge Mike Erwin and all of lifelong friends she met while there. Maybe the most special place in her heart was her years working at St Aloysius School. She religiously kept up with what she called "her kids". She loved to read about their academic awards, sports awards and, especially, their wedding announcements. She would also follow the progress of their children as well. She is survived by her husband, Leonard Kleinpeter; daughters, Kelli Becnel and husband Mike, and Jodi Griffon and husband, George; sons, Briar Kleinpeter, and Britton Kleinpeter and wife, Leslie; grandchildren, Chad and Steele Becnel, Beau and Georgia Griffon, Briggs and Annsley Kleinpeter, and Carmen Kleinpeter; sister, Kay Begue and husband Sheldon; and sister-in-law, Sandra Gourrier. Ann is preceded in death by her parents, John Fred, Sr. and Miriam Gourrier; and brother, John Fred Gourrier, Jr. Visiting hours will be observed at Resthaven Funeral Home, 11817 Jefferson Highway, on Friday, August 8, 2014 from 9:00 am until Christian Service at 11:00 am. Inurnment to follow in Resthaven Gardens of Memory.
