Another Funeral

A lot of the folks I worked with are passing away.  Since I am retired, I feel an obligation to attend their funerals.  Bobbie Hamilton Kinslow was the secretary at RMS for a number of years.  I went to pay my respects to her today.  Down one hallway in the school I worked at I can count bunches of women who got breast cancer.  Two died from it.  I would see Bobbie in the grocery store once and a while.  Our paths crossed.

Bobbie Kinslow, 80, of Russellville, died Monday, August 8, 2016 at St. Mary's Regional Medical Center. She was born on February 22, 1936, in Hector to Emmett Andrew and Florence Mabel LeFan Hamilton.
Bobbie had many roles at the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church and was the first female ordained elder. She enjoyed her family, church, camp families, helping others, cooking and sewing. She loved her work she did for Camp Peniel where she served on the board of directors as president and secretary for the camp. Her main love was cooking for senior high camp.
Bobbie was a school secretary from 1971-1998 at the Russellville Middle School and for the Center Valley Elementary School.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by two sisters, Emogene Coffman and Kathleen Goats.
Survivors include her husband of almost 61 years, Thomas "Tommy" Kinslow; two sons and their spouses, Andrew "Andy" Allen Kinslow and Russ Kirckpatrick of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Eddy and Lucy Kinslow of Rogers; two sisters, Marcalene Butler of North Little Rock and Agnes Cochran of Rogers; one granddaughter, Jill Lauren Kinslow of New York, New York; and numerous nieces and nephews.
