Obituary of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth and Barbara (Spivey) Kink

Barbara Spivey Kink, age 82, passed away on the morning of Tuesday, April 19, 2022. Her husband, Kenneth Kink, preceded her in death on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 in Whitley City, KY. Their wish was to be laid to rest in Hall Cemetery with the other family Spivey family members.
Barbara Ellen Spivey was born February 8, 1941 to Eddie and Marie Spivey in Cave In Rock, IL (deceased).
Barb and Ken are survived by one daughter, Alinia, of Texas; and two sons, Kevin of Nashville, IL and Chris of Whitley City, KY. Barb and Ken adopted four children, who also survive: two girls and two boys. Barb was at the age of about 65 at the time of the adoption. Savannah, the youngest graduates from high school soon. The other daughter is Kaylee and the other two sons are Anthony and Caleb. Barb loved her family.
We walk the path the Lord gives us and they couldn’t leave these children by the creek bank. At that time, they ranged in age from 2-4 months to 4 years old. They gave them a home as best they could. Sometimes we get sidetracked, but hopefully always come back to the light. The Blessed Light.
Barb was preceded in death by her husband, Ken “Paw”; Barb and Ken were preceded in death by both sets of parents; and Barb by 9 brothers and 6 sisters. Barb was also preceded in death by a daughter, Penny.
One sister, Wanda Dixon, of Cave In Rock survives.
And the old Rugged Cross makes a difference to a life filled with heartache and pain. I will praise Him forever and ever for the Cross makes a difference to me.
Services are planned for Saturday, June 25, 2022 at Hall Cemetery, Hardin County, Illinois, at 1:00 p.m.
