Obituary of Vivian C. Kinney
Surrounded by her loving family members, Vivian C. Kinney of Clark Mills passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus on Friday, March 14, 2008. She is now pain-free and happy to join her beloved husband Richard D. Kinney, whom she married in Clinton, on September 14, 1940, who was taken from her prematurely on December 30, 1979. Together with firm and loving hands, they raised seven children, who share fond memories of camping, baseball games and a close-knit family. The Kinney home and yard was a welcoming place for all friends and family and most of the time was where neighborhood kids could be found. She enjoyed her position as matriarch of a family that included four sons and daughters-in-law, Richard L. and Maureen of Syracuse, Timothy and Hiroko of Clark Mills, James and Shelley of Clark Mills and Daniel and Patricia of Whitesboro and three daughters and sons-in-law, Sandra (Kinney) and Beecher Coss of Fulton, Nancy (Kinney) and John Alsheimer of Utica and Lorraine Kinney-Kitchen and Leslie Kitchen of Clinton, fifteen grandchildren Lisa (Kinney) Williams, Eilleen Kinney (sadly lost in 1989), Richard and Louis Kinney, Thomas Coss, Tim and Tammy Kinney, David Alsheimer and Ann Marie (Alsheimer) Kurdziolek, Tanya (Kitchen) Gadziala and Heath Kitchen, Shannon and Dan Kinney and Danielle and Emily Kinney and fifteen great-grandchildren. She was the baby girl of Jesse and Mabel Fosdick Rouillier, born in Kirkland on December 31, 1921 and graduated from Clinton Central School in 1939. She was predeceased by her parents, and brothers Jesse, Fred, Paul Rouillier and sisters Louise Bielby and Beatrice Myers. She is survived by her dearest sister and friend, Esther Myers of Clinton. She devoted her life and took great pride in the care of her family and her loss leaves a void which will never be filled. Her family would like to gratefully acknowledge the loving care provided by the staff and volunteers of the Siegenthaler Center at Hospice and ask that in lieu of flowers, please consider donations to that facility. Calling hours will be Monday, March 17, 2008 from 2-4 and 7-9pm at Owens-Pavlot Funeral Service, Inc, 35 College St., Clinton. Funeral services will be 10am Tuesday at Church of the Annunciation Clark Mills. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery. The mercy meal will follow at Clark Mills American Legion.
