Tinnie Sue McKinney

November 2, 1939February 21, 2019

Tinnie Sue McKinney, age 79, of Brent, Alabama passed away on Thursday February 21, 2019. Tinnie was born November 2, 1939.

Tinnie and her husband, Allen would often take their children to Dolphin Island for vacations. On one such occasion, they decided to camp out in the bed of their '69 pick-up truck and camp on the beach. It took only one hot, humid night full of blood-thirsty mosquitos to drive the family to a hotel to enjoy the rest of the family vacation.

Momma always sacrificed anything and everything she wanted so her children could have not only what they needed, but also whatever they wanted. Putting everyone in her family before herself, Momma provided selflessly succulent meals, sweet delicious desserts and always plenty for second or third servings.

Tinnie is survived by her loving husband of 60+ years, Hopson Allen McKinney, two sons, Mark (Sharon) McKinney of Eoline and Mickey (Marielos) McKinney of San Jose, Costa Rica, two daughters, Tammy (Billy) Steele of Eoline, Robin (Jerry) Williford of Bossier City, La. She is also survived by Brothers, J.B.(Charolette) Clark of Centreville, Dan Clark of Martin Lake. She leaves behind 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Tinnie was preceded in death by her parents, Reece and Eva Lee Clark, Brothers, Walter, Jay, and Joe Clark, sisters Eunice Morton, Rachel Hobson and Bobbie Rogers.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3: 5-6

I hate to think about you not being on this side of heaven. But I bet my Mama is glad to see you. :) You were always so sweet to me and treated me like I was yours. That meant so much. You were also such a good friend to my Mama when David and Mark were both in the Service and you both held each other up when you were so worried about them. I still remember your hot dogs and hamburgers and how you would put everything on them and then wrap them in tin foil and stick them in the oven for a little while. They were so good I would come over after eating supper at home and eat with you again. I will be praying for everyone, they will have a hard time without you here but they have the hope of knowing they will see you again. Hug Mama and Daddy for me. Angie

Aunt Tinnie I will never forget the way you always took care of us when we were little. The dinner table looked small today, but back then it was huge. Packing all 6 of us kids around it and we all ate til we were stuffed.
Your work on earth is done, so rest, enjoy your new home and keep watch over us all. Love you always.
