Our precious sister, (Doris) Fayerene Kiper, passed peacefully into heaven on December 1, 2020. Fayerene, a twin daughter of H. A. Oscar and Beatress Rhodes Kiper, was born in Artesia, New Mexico on June 29, 1950. Fayerene was injured at birth, causing a high fever, leaving her with a mental capacity of approximately two-years-old. Fayerene was a very loving person and there were no limits to her love. Fayerene cared deeply for others. She loved shopping, helping others cook and clean, and donating to organizations or individuals and buying presents for her roommate and sister.

Fayerene is preceded in death by her grandparents, parents, two sisters: Caroline Kiper and Bessie Kiper Hall; and brother-in-law, Dwaine Douglas. Fayerene is survived by her twin sister, Wayelene Haley (Eugene) of Roswell, sister, Elizabeth Douglas of Elk River, Minnesota; brother-in-law, Chan Hall of Bakersfield, California, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Fayerene is also survived by her very special friends: Dee Dee and Kee Kee.

Thank You to all of Fayerene’s staff and caregivers at Tobosa Developmental Services, Team members, and her case managers from J & J Homecare, Inc. for all of their loving care. Thank You to Amanda, Connie, Dianna, Gena, Laquita, Michelle, Regina, and Suzanne, who were her caregivers for many years. A very special Thank You goes to Fayerene’s “Mama Tia”, Lucy, who was her caregiver for over 20 years.

A memorial service will be held at First Church of the Nazarene, 501 N. Sycamore, Roswell, New Mexico, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 10, 2021. Everyone is asked to wear purple as that was Fayerene’s favorite color. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bonita Park Campground and Conference Center, 200 Bonita Park Road, Angus, NM 88316; or Tobosa Developmental Services, 110 E. Summit Street, Roswell, NM, 88203.
