obit art 3
Ronna Rae (Kinsey) McKibben, 66, of Tippecanoe, passed away peacefully at her home Saturday, March 30, 2013 with her children by her side. Born Oct. 14, 1946 in Dennison, she was a daughter of the late Vernon Ray and Martha Faye (Forsythe) Kinsey.

On Sept. 25, 1964, Ronna married the love of her life, Robert W. “Bob” McKibben. They enjoyed 43 years of life, marriage and working their family farm together until his passing on Feb. 2, 2008.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Dwight McKibben, and her brother-in-law, Bill Laughlin.

In keeping with Ronna’s wishes, a private family service, for immediate family only, will be held at a later date with interment alongside her beloved Bob in Deersville’s Patterson Union Cemetery. Those wishing to honor her memory by a charitable contribution are encouraged to do so to Mount Carmel United Methodist Church, the American Cancer Society, or by helping a friend or neighbor in need, in lieu of flowers. R.K. Lindsey Funeral Home, Inc. was in charge of arrangements.
