Nancy Aughtry Kinley

Jerry Gaudet reports:

It's with sadness that we learn of another classmate passing:
Nancy Aughtry Kinley
Nancy, 71, a native Charlottean, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 12, 2007. She was the daughter of the late Harvey and Maggie McAllister Aughtry.
She was a graduate of Central High School.
Nancy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Married to Ray Kinley for 52 years, a stronger, more committed marriage could not be found. Her son, Don Kinley, and daughter, Donna Brookshire, both of Charlotte, were blessed to have had such a wonderful, caring mother who made home such a wonderful place. Twin grandchildren, Grayson and Allison Brookshire, have wonderful memories of times shared. She adored her younger sister, Jean Aughtry, of Mooresville, with whom she talked almost daily.
Aside from family, she loved her backyard birds and nursing distressed flowers back to life. She loved shopping trips with her daughter, crafts, and was an excellent cook. Holidays were especially special and full of family traditions that will be forever remembered.Special thanks go to Dr. Arthur Patefield, her special "angel", and Presbyterian Hospice & Palliative Care.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Edgar H. Aughtry, Jr., Harold Aughtry and Frank Aughtry; and sisters, Bernice Wheeler and Joyce Williams.A celebration of her life will be 2 PM Wednesday, November 14, at Wilson Funeral & Cremation Service, 5301 Albemarle Road, with the Reverend Dr. Larry Mitchell of Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church officiating. Interment will follow in Evergreen Cemetery. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service.
Memorials may be sent to Presbyterian Hospice & Palliative Care, PO Box 33549, Charlotte, NC 28233-3549.
Mrs. Kinley's family is being served by Wilson Funeral & Cremation Service.
