Peacefully closing this temporal chapter of her earthly life early Sunday morning August 8, 2021, she began a new life of infinite joy and celebration in the most eternal realm. She was born in Florence, South Carolina on September 2, 1927, to the late Mr. John and Mrs. Julia Gregg Lonon, Florence, SC. She was one of ten brothers and sisters, who preceded her in death. She was educated in Florence Public Schools, graduating from Wilson High School. After graduating, she received extended training and was employed in Harrisburg, PA and New York, NY. Later, she returned to Florence where she was employed by Florence School District One until her retirement. A fully committed woman to her abiding faith, she grew up in Trinity Baptist Church. As an adult, she served in many capacities in the church including Deaconess Board and Missionary Society member. She was preceded in death by her husband of over sixty years Deacon Robert L. Kinley.
