Joseph 'Joe' Kinney, 71, Trafalgar

Joseph M. “Joe” Kinney, 71, passed away peacefully at his residence Tuesday evening, April 16, 2013, in Trafalgar. By his side was his loving wife of 54 years, Mary J. (Stephens) Kinney, whom he married Feb. 20, 1959, in Macedonia, Iowa.

Joe is also survived by his children, Debbra Kinney of New Whiteland, Jerrold (Stephanie) Kinney of Indianapolis and Jonathan (Karen) Kinney of Brownsburg. He will be remembered by his siblings, Marsha M. (Jarred) Tillson, Elena (Dave) Eaton and Michael D. Kinney, all of Tulsa, Okla.; 10 grandchildren, James Michael Kinney, Heather Marie Kinney, Nicole Ann Kinney, Bryan Joseph Kinney, Andrew Kinney, Elijah L. Shafer, Aaron Joseph Shafer, Matthew A. Shafer, Samuel Levi Shafer and Joshua Clark Kinney; and 13 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by two daughters, Barbara Shafer in 2011 and Nancy Jo Kinney in 1960.

Joe was born in Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 10, 1942, to J. Milton and Marvina H. (Heard) Kinney. He was a 1960 graduate of Carson-Macedonia High School and went on to receive his bachelor’s degree from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. Joe retired in 2010 as a manager and salesman for Stenno Carbon Company in Indianapolis after 15 years of service.

Joe was a member of the United Methodist Church and was known for his great sense of humor. He enjoyed fishing and playing golf with his wife and other family members and “the guys.” Joseph also enjoyed playing cards with his grandchildren and spending time with his dog, “Bogey.”

Mr. Samuel Laythan will conduct a funeral service at 1 p.m. Saturday at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown. Friends can call from 11 a.m. until service time Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will be in East Hill Cemetery in Morgantown.

Memorial contributions can be sent in honor of Joe to the Franciscan St. Francis Cancer Care Center, 8111 S. Emerson Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46237.

Expressions of caring and kindness can be made to the Kinney family at www.meredith-clark.com.
