Margaret (Schultz) Hinkle, age 91, passed away on January 8, 2021 in a Dallas, TX hospital. Her passing was peaceful with her daughter, Barbara, by her side, holding her hand and comforting her. She was born on October 16, 1929 to Viola and James Schultz in Detroit, MI where she grew up with seven siblings. On May 22, 1948 she married George Hinkle who preceded her in death. She is survived by one sister, Naomi of Birmingham, AL; daughters, Glenda (James) Shipman and Barbara (William) Young and son, George (Cindy) Hinkle, Jr.

She was a beloved Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Wife, Mother, Friend but her favorite titles were “Mamaw” used by her grandchildren – Cori, Cammie, Megan, Gennifer, Elliott, Miranda and “Meemaw” used by her great-grandchildren – Chance, Caleb, Mayleigh, Cohen, Christian, Callista, Macy, Ila, Emmett, Augie, Nora, Brenna, Greyson and River. For her, family was the most important part of her life and enjoyed her absolute devotion, care, attention and unconditional love.

Along with family, she leaves behind many friends in the Springs Valley area where she raised her family and lived most of her life. She enjoyed spending the winter months in Dallas with her daughter, Barbara and her family and lived there since November, 2018. An employee of Kimball International for many years, after retirement she enjoyed visiting family and friends and traveling with her husband until his passing 27 years ago.

Due to the COVID pandemic, it is with sad regrets that a celebration of her life must be delayed until later in 2021 when she will be laid to rest alongside her husband. Memorial contributions in Margaret’s memory may be made to a local animal shelter of your choice.
