1937 ~ 2017

Murray, UT – Barbara Hansen Kinsey, age 80, passed away peacefully in her sleep of natural causes at her favorite place, their cabin in Summit County, on Sunday, October 1, 2017.
Barbara was born in Logan, Utah to Roy C. Hansen and Ada Checketts Hansen. She was the 3rd of 4 children. She graduated from Granite High School. She married her best friend and loving husband, J. Burton Kinsey, on June 22, 1964. She has always been a very loving and classy Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Grandma-Great. She lived her life to its fullest—always thinking of others, especially her family. She was a big Jazz fan, enjoyed crocheting, puzzles, games, other crafts and traveling. But most of all, she loved being at the cabin. Even with her limitations, she still managed to get around. Barbara still has many lifelong friends whom she loved and enjoyed every visit she had with them. She spent many years in a club with a lot of her friends gabbing and playing cards. She will be very much missed by all.
Barbara is survived by her husband of 53 years, Burton; children, Luann McCool (Bill), Tracy D. Kinsey (Kelly), Royann Burningham (Scott); 8 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren—all from Utah; her sister, Janis Hansen Riding; and brother, Rick Hansen (Bambi). Preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, Hal Hansen (Pauline).
