On June 2, 1953 she married T.F. “Tex” Kinsey in Casper. The couple remained in Casper until moving to Hyattville in the 1980s. For years, Fern was a secretary for several oil companies until retirement in 1985. She also kept books for her husband’s company, Kin-Tex Equipment. The couple moved to Thermopolis in 2007. With her own kiln, she created ceramics, also teaching others. She enjoyed cooking, sewing and crafts. In Thermopolis she was a member of the Eagles.

She was preceded in death by her parents and three sisters. Survivors include her husband, Tex, son, Gary (Kathy) Kinsey of Thermopolis; one grandchild, two step-grandchildren, and numerous great, and great, great grandchildren. Memorial services will be held Monday, Jan. 26, 2 p.m. at Community Federated Church with Reverend Chuck Cooper officiating. Mortimore Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.

From Mary Hyatt Burns:

Many of you probably read Fern Kinsey's obituary in Daily News today.  However, to clarify the church, it is the Community Federated Methodist-Presbyterian Church. That is the first brick church on the right hand side of the street as you come into Thermopolis. It has a "Seasons Greetings" sign on the wall facing North, which they cover with the white banner that says, "Open Sundays."  The memorial service is at 2:00 pm on Monday, January 26th.
When I asked Tex today how he was doing, he said it is so hard to lose the person you had lived with for 60 years. They have not designated a specific memorial recipient. I know she was active with the quilt show and took a lot of pride in that along with the Hyattville Harvest Dinner. Tex told me that they had been married in a Methodist Church in Kansas and that was why they chose to have the service at that particular church in Thermopolis.

If sending a card, their mailing address is: 317 South 12th, Thermopolis 82443.  Tex doesn't use a computer, so he won't see the online messages that you can leave on the Funeral Home's website, but the children and grandchildren may enjoy seeing those.
