Inez Gertrude Kingsley (1932-2019)

May 28, 1932 - March 11, 2019

Inez Gertrude Kingsley (1932-2019) Inez G. (she always said G. stood for "Gorgeous", but her middle name was Gertrude!) Kingsley went home to God in heaven on March 11, 2019 after over 86 years of a very good and generous life. Her funeral will be held at Sacred Heart Monastery chapel in Cullman, Ala. at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, with visitation beginning at 2 p.m. on the same day. In some ways Inez was larger than life, especially in personality and spirit, but in some ways also very understated, for example in her low key way of being embracing of everyone and giving everything she could to make others' lives better.
Born on May 28, 1932 in what she called "God's country", Pennsylvania, she was one of five children born to John Robert and Frances Marie Kingsley. She believed in a good education and hard work. She was an X ray technician and was a respected radiology technician educator in a field then dominated by men. She was a lifelong, faith-filled Catholic who lived each day in gratitude for life and those around her. When she retired she came from Georgia to live at Benedictine Manor in Cullman where she lived almost 20 years. When she could no longer live without assistance, she moved to Folsom Center for Rehabilitation & Long Term Care in Cullman, where she lived another almost seven happy years. She was beloved by all who knew her and leaves in her wake many happy memories, good laughs, and kindness beyond telling.
Inez was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Francis V. ("Lefty") Kingsley; and her sister, Roberta (Bobby) Connolly.
She is survived by two brothers, Fred (Pat) Kingsley of Apopka, Fla. and Rick (Janet) Kingsley of Leesville, S.C. She also has many nieces and nephews and others who she adopted or who adopted her as their loving friend and mentor. God has called home this good and faithful servant where she now lives with God for all eternity.

No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss. At Rev.21:4 it talks about a future for mankind without pain, suffering, or death. May you take comfort in those words.
