Marilyn "Pinky" McKinney

November 16, 1941 — June 23, 2023

Marilyn "Pinky" McKinney, age 81,born in El Paso, TX passed away peacefully in her home in Shepherd, TX surrounded by her loving family on June 23, 2023. Fondly know as "Pinky" by all who knew and loved her. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ules and Oleta Culberth and her brother Duane. She was married to her loving  husband James for 57 years. Survivors include her husband, James; daughter    Stacy Rosetta (Brad), Jackie Kinard (Ted), Kelley Meadows (Gordon); son, Jody Harvey; sisters, Patsy Manuel (Jerry), Linda Wood (Bud), and Peggy Thomas (Bruce); brothers, Billy Culberth (Cindy), Ronald Culberth (Darlene), and Terry Culberth; grandchildren, Meagan Saintes (Kevin), Weston Kinard (Kristy), Tyler Rosetta, Trey Kinard(Bri), Mitch Kinard, and Aleese Harvey; great grandchildren, Joseph Saintes, Cannon Kinard, Kenzie Rosetta, Waverly Kinard, Karston Saintes, Logan Saintes and Trislyn Evans; and a loving  family of nieces and nephews. She enjoyed various activities and hobbies including crafting, gardening, quilting, fishing, traveling, and yard sales where she always looked for the best bargain. Her absolute  favorite thing to do was gamble and play dominoes. No matter whether she won or lost she said and I quote " I'm always the winner". If you knew her you always knew where you stood with her. She was not one to sugar coat anything and she always said what she thought. She has a heart as big as Texas and    honesty was one of her greatest virtues. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her, but we know she will  always be comforted by her mother (granny) in heaven. Visitation for "Pinky" will be on Wednesday, June 28, 2023 from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm at Neal Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be held on Thursday June 29, 2023 at Splendora First Pentecostal Church at 11:00 am with Pastor Ronald Culberth officiating. Interment to follow at Farley Chapel Cemetery in Shepherd, Texas.
