Christa Kump-Timmons

May 5, 1939 — June 3, 2016

Christa Kump-Timmons, nee Strlein, of Kansas City, Kansas went home to our Heavenly Father on June 3rd, 2016.
She was born May 5th, 1939 in Bad Kissingen, Germany to Georg Eduard Strlein and Erna Eugenia, nee Rinker, Strlein. In 1955, when she was 16 years old, she immigrated to the United States with her mother and sister Karin, settling first in Independence, Missouri and later moving to Kansas City, Kansas.
Christa was a very social person, making friends easily wherever she went. She enjoyed mixing and mingling with people and was a member of several social groups such as The Edelweiss Club, German American Citizens Association and Bethel Community Center, to name just a few.
She was also a pious and devote member of St. Mary-St. Anthony Catholic Church for more than 50 years, and while her children attended school, was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. Christa belonged to various church groups and organizations, even serving as a Parish Council member.
Christa was a loving daughter, mother, and grandmother (Oma) who especially took great pride and satisfaction in her grandchildren, or "K-Troop" as she called them. She unselfishly cared for her stroke afflicted mother and always looked forward to being available to help/play with her "K-Troop".
Christa is survived by her 4 children: son Thomas Kump, Phoenix, AZ; son Alexander Kump (Kathy Steele), KCK; son Norman Kump (Michele Collins), KCK; and daughter Heidi (Kump) Huenergarde (Aaron), Whitesburg, TN.; 14 grandchildren: Geoffrey, Andrew, Audrey, Erich, Charles Kump; Savannah, Annabelle, Thatcher, Winston, Eleanor, Rosemary Kump; and Morgan, Jennifer and Kyle Huenergarde; former husband Erich Jakob Kump, several brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Christa was preceded in death by her parents, step-father Giuseppi Ponturo, husband John Timmons, and her sister Karin Swofford.
The family would like to thank Kansas City Hospice for the excellent care and treatment given to their mom during her illness.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, June 9th from 5 pm 7 pm at St. Mary-St. Anthony Catholic Church, 615 N. 7th, KCK, with the Rosary at 7 pm. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary-St. Anthony Catholic Church on Friday, June 10th at 9:30 am. Interment will take place that afternoon at 2:30 pm in the Leavenworth National Cemetery, 150 Muncie Road, Leavenworth, KS.
In lieu of flowers, Christa and family would like to request contributions to St. Mary-St. Anthony Catholic Church. Arrangements: Skradski Funeral Home, KCK, 913-371-1404, www.skradskifh-kc.com.
