(May 9, 1944 - Jan. 29, 2018)
Delores A. Kinney of Powell, born May 9, 1944, in Dallas, Texas, went home to the Lord on Monday evening Jan. 29, 2018, in Cody. She was 73.
Delores will be remembered as an avid gardener, lover of music, dance, painting and elephants. She was a nurturing soul whose friends became family. Delores celebrated to the fullest, especially the holidays. In life she found comfort with her church family at 2nd Baptist Church in Greenville, Kentucky.
She leaves behind her two children, whom she treasured, Dana (Gary) Ladd and Marvin R. (Randy) Kinney, both from Powell; her dear brother Marvin Ray Driggers of Greenville, Kentucky; three granddaughters Breanna Kinney of Livermore, Colorado, Ciera and Sheena Kinney from San Jose, California; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Also left behind is her beloved dog Buster.
She will be reuniting with her husband Marvin E. Kinney Jr., her mother Alice Rutera Powell, her father Marvin Alvin Driggers and her three sisters Peggy M. Sincerbox, Mary Marie Noe Rose and Billy Maude Driggers, who all preceded her in death.
“I Made it Home”
I just wanted to let you all know that I made it home. The journey wasn’t an easy one, but it didn’t take too long. Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh and new. I wish that you all could close your eyes and that you could see it, too. Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand God is taking care of me ... I’m in the shelter of His hands.
Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain. Here there is no crying, and I’ll never hurt again. Here it is so peaceful when all the angels sing. I really have to go for now ... I’ve just got to try my wings.” — Unknown author
Graveside services led by Katie Williamson will be held at a later date.
