She was born on August 19, 1958 in Monroe to the late Benjamin High and Shirley Seddon. She graduated from Olympic High School in Charlotte. She loved catering and after tiring of the hectic schedule that required, she went to work for Union County at the Winchester Center in Monroe which she dearly loved working with all the children they had in their care. She and her son were founding members of Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church and she took great pride in their growth and success. Kenza was predeceased in addition to her parents, by her son Benjamin Richard Burr in 2002. He was the light of her life. Her survivors include her husband of 28 years, John Shoemaker; her brother, Harris High; step-mother, Elizabeth High; aunt, Louise High; and numerous special cousins. Her family would like to express their sincere thanks to the staff of Monroe Rehabilitation Center for their kind and considerate care of Kenza for the last years of her life, to Hospice and Palliative Care and especially Monica for their care in her final days, and a special word of thanks and praise to Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church for their Pastor Ed Thomas and Karen Weiner for their never ending love and support of Kenza over all these years. The family asks that memorials in memory of Kenza may be sent to either Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church, 8600 Potter Rd, Weddington NC 28104 or to Hospice and Palliative Care Charlotte Region at www.hpccr.org.
