Elizabeth (Liz) Charlotte Kinsey

March 29, 1942 — September 5, 2022

Elizabeth (Liz) Charlotte Kinsey

The Angels came for Elizabeth (Liz) Kinsey on Monday September 5, 2022.  She had faced a long challenge from a GBM, a walnut sized brain tumor first diagnosed and treated with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy since September 2015.  She and her husband, Jim, saw progress in her battle, with the tumor completely regressing only to reappear a couple of years later.  Her strength and determination were extraordinary, but she finally succumbed to the ravages of the cancer.

Jim and Liz first met in Livingston, NJ high school and went on their first date on September 26, 1959.  That “date” lasted until her death 63 years later. Jim and Liz married on June 12, 1965.  In 1968, after college graduation, they moved to New Zealand where their first two children were born.  Liz raised the boys and cared for the family while Jim practiced Veterinary Medicine.  Three years later they moved to Australia briefly and then traveled home via Africa and Europe.  Her willingness to cheerfully travel with a 3-year-old and a 16-month-old through African game parks, sleeping in tents some nights, then through the sights of Athens, Greece and on to Germany was a testament to her love for her family and her strong and cheerful support of Jim’s goal of traveling around the globe before they turned 30. Once back in the USA, they settled in Manchester Center, VT and had a third boy.  In 1982 Liz once again ventured into another phase of her life when the family purchased a poultry and cattle farm on Jot-Em Down Rd in Forsyth County.  They moved into a mobile home, repaired the chicken house and Liz became a chicken farmer.  The family built a house and happily lives there today.

Liz was born in NJ on March 29, 1942.  She was preceded in death by her parents and one of two brothers.  She is survived by a brother, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, & several nieces and nephews.  She also is survived by her husband of 57 years & their sons and their wives, Kelly & Kelley, Geoff & Tina and Andy & Jennifer and grandchildren Bryce, Blake, Tim, & Lucas in NC and Isabelle, Elliott & Anderson in GA.  A multitude of cousins are scattered over several states and in southern Germany where her parents were born and raised.  Liz was loved and admired by many and will long be remembered for her love and for her quick wit.  She was indeed the “Johnny Appleseed” of friendship and joy. 

The family will hold a celebration of Liz’s extraordinary life in the Ingram Funeral Home Chapel at 2pm on Sunday, September 25th 2022.
