Tribute & Message From The Family

Grace Cox Kerns, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend passed away peacefully at home on November 24, 2019. Grace was born on September 28, 1951 to Walter Cox, Jr. and Mary (Johnson) Cox of Clemson, South Carolina.

A bright shining light in this world, she loved everyone as she loved life: immensely, unconditionally, and with an unyielding zest. The impact Grace made on the people around her was profound, and everyone was unquestionably better for it.

Grace leaves behind husband Charles; son Wesley and daughter-in-law Jennifer; grandchildren Keaton and Sadie; brothers and sisters-in-law Walter and Vicki Cox, Frank and Crossie Cox, and Bill and Janet Cox; brothers-in-law Forrest and Don Kerns and their families, and nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand nephews, cousins, and friends far too numerous to count.

Memorial services will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Clemson, 397 College Ave., Clemson.

In lieu of flowers or memorial contributions, please send love out to the world in remembrance of Grace.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)

So sorry to hear of your loss. I knew Grace as a bright and sparkling child in a wonderful family, growing up in Clemson. She obviously carried those attributes throughout life, spreading love and joy.

Mrs. Kerns's beautiful spirt touched my life for only a few short days but impacted me significantly. The love that she and Charles had was incredible. Prayers for this family.
