Kinney, Jordan and Braxton and Moore/Hinkle family, What a beautiful soul Barbara was!! Over the years we have loved hanging out with her sunny personality. We are going to miss her laugh, kind words and fierce love for conservative values!! She loved her family and she was loved by so many!!! Big hugs and love to this beautiful extended family in Kentucky from our Cincinnati family.
She never said it but I felt like I was her favorite (Don't tell Larry). That is the way she made everyone feel, the person in front of her was always a very special person to her. She had so much love to give away and gave it willingly. She always exhibited what it is to have class, it came natural to her. That is who she was, a loving Southern lady with class. She spoke softly and chose her words carefully. Her legacy is the wonderful children she raised and the outsiders (like me) she influenced. Women like her are very rare, a life I celebrate.
Fond memories, as teammate, on Southern Acres Christian Church Women's Softball team. God bless Jenny and rest of family. RIP, Barbara!🙏
Dear Jenny, I’m so sorry to hear your Mom passed away. What a beautiful lady. I always thought she was so pretty. Always kind and gracious. The Hinkle fishfry was fun and delicious. Please take care of yourself. You’ll be thinking of her so often and sometimes it’s going to be happy and sometimes sad. She was a wonderful lady. Love, Mary Boyd
