Joyce LaNell Williams Kinley, 76, formerly of Beebe, was born July 29, 1942 and reared by her parents Johnny and Jewell Paty Williams in Vilonia, Arkansas in a happy Christian home. She passed away Thursday, December 6, 2018.
Joyce loved working in her yard, music, reading, cats and crosswords. She knew the lyrics of most every song she ever heard, gospel to rock and roll, and her quick wit and sense of humor made her fun to be around. She was a trusted friend and a sharing, giving volunteer in our community.
Joyce was predeceased by her parents, and husband Dr. Garrett Kinley.
She is survived by three children, Timothy Johnston, Rebecca (Dave) Gaskin, and Alexis (Skip) Mitchell; six grandchildren, eleven great-great grandchildren; three sisters, Jequetta Glenn, Jonnie Jirik, and Jerry Seaton, as well as her former husband, John Hale.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Cleburne County Humane Society or your favorite charity.
We want to thank her doctors, Dr. Hardin and Dr. Nair, and Arkansas Hospice, especially her CNA. Barbara.
Memorial service will be 3:00 p.m. Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Smith-Westbrook Funeral Home, Beebe. Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. Cremation arrangements by Smith-Westbrook Funeral Home. www.smithfamilycares.com
