Nadean M. Kerr (Dean), age 89 of Knoxville, passed away suddenly on January 18, 2022. She is now residing with her Lord and Savior and was greeted anxiously by her husband Gene, of 62 years whom she had missed for the past 9 years. She will be remembered as the most loving, devoted and generous daughter, wife, mother and grandmother to her entire family always putting them first, above herself. We are all so thankful for her always being the beacon of light for all of us. She was a member of Black
Oak Heights Baptist Church and loved the Lord and her church family and was the most faithful prayer warrior there ever was. Some of her most fond memories were of the youth trips she got to go on and making all the homemade treats for the kids, which most will never forget.
Preceding her in this journey was her loving husband, Gene Kerr, parents Jewell and Mintha Mantooth, siblings Ted, Don and Bill Mantooth. Beloved aunt Grace Bradley and husband James.
She is survived by her loving children, Kathy Williams (Roger), Larry Kerr. Grandchildren, Vanessa James and Rhonda Rauhuff. Also great-grandchildren she cherished and prayed for everyday of her life, Devin Jackson, Driana James, Shailyn Howell, and Jazzmin Rauhuff. Great-great-granddaughter, Jaelynn. Brother, Warren Mantooth and special cousin Carl Bradley.

Graveside service will be Monday at 3pm, Greenwood Cemetery, with Todd Stinnett officiating. The family asks that attendees please wear their masks.
