Twyla J. Magneson, Age: 85

 Twyla J. Magneson, 85, of Prairie Village, KS, died Christmas Day at the Kansas City Hospice House.  Visitation will be held from 9:30-11:00 a.m. with Funeral Services following at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 31, at Prairie Baptist Church, 7416 Roe Ave. Prairie Village, KS.  Burial will follow at Antioch Pioneer Cemetery.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Prairie Baptist Choir.

  Twyla was born June of 1934, in Emerson, IA, the daughter of Arthur and Zula Jenkins and moved to Kansas City in 1971.  As a young child, her father bought her a piano. Like her father, she could read and play the piano by ear.  In fact, the teacher could not play the song in it's entirety because she would then play it by ear, instead of reading the music.  She was a member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, and a longtime member of Prairie Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir.  Twyla was an active homemaker, avid gardener, artist, and loved cooking, especially baking.  She was preceded in death by her parents, 2 brothers and sons, Brian S. and Brant K. Magneson.  Twyla is survived by her husband of 66 years, Keith, daughter, Darci Magneson, grandchildren, Lauren Magneson, James Bryan and David Bryan, and by her Maltese dog, Abby.  She will be deeply missed by her friends and family.

Dear Keith and Darci, The last time I saw you was at Marvella's funeral. We certainly had some fun times at Marvellas home. So much has happened since then. Frank has had MANY serious falls over the past two years. After the last one on the concrete that sent him to the hospital and rehab, the children moved quickly and sent us to Assisted LIving at Garden Villas #236 in Lenexa. .He has very little control of his hands and cannot walk unassisted. You can see why that eventhough we would love to pay our respects to you and your family and the many good times we had, that we are unable to get there.. Be assured that all of our memories of Twyla and you are wonderful ones and that you will be in our prayers for peace. and safety. Frank also is confused a lot of the time so as to be disruptive at such an event. May God be with you and help you daily through this time. He now has another member of his choir and I am sure she is ver happy in his presence. Much Love, wanda and frank brandt
