Obituary

Doris Lorraine Hinesly, 92, of Austin, Texas, was born on February 22, 1926, in Roswell, New Mexico, to Lelia and William Kennady. She graduated from Roswell High School in 1944. In 1945, she married Delbert Cleveland Hinesly, and they were married for 30 years when he passed away in 1976. Lorraine passed away December 10, 2018 at 9:45 a.m. at the Sagebrook Senior Health Center in the presence of loved ones.

She is survived by her children, Marsha (Richard) Steele of Cabot, Arkansas; Pat (Reagan) Clinton of Cedar Park, Texas; Debbie (Chuck) Streker of Wichita, Kansas; Abbie Hinesly of Austin, Texas; Jeff (Melanee) Hinesly of Saugus, California; and Laura (Ted) Taylor of Austin, Texas; 14 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and 16 great-great grandchildren.

Lorraine was a wonderful homemaker who had a passion for taking care of her husband and children. She loved basketball, and played in high school, as well as on an adult basketball team. After her husband passed at 50 years of age, she went to Nixon Clay Business College, and obtained a degree in bookkeeping. She worked for Cecil Green Trucking for several years as their bookkeeper, before retiring and moving in with Laura and Ted for 28 years. She loved playing cards and dominoes with her many friends from church.

Lorraine was known by all to have a quiet and sweet demeanor, and never complained about anything. In her final weeks, it was very obvious that everyone believed she was the most wonderful and sweetest person in the world.

Funeral services will be at Promiseland Church in Austin, Texas, Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 11 a.m. Cremation services are provided by Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Homes and Cremation Services.
