Coranne “Coby” Kay Hinkle

We lost a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandma and beloved friend on April 12th, due to breast cancer.

Coby was born in San Bernardino on May 20th, 1941 and graduated from Pacific High School in 1959. However, she always considered Basic High School in Henderson, NV her High School alma mater.

She began working at an early age sometimes holding 2 and even 3 jobs to make sure her family had everything they needed. Coby began her nearly 40 year career with the County of San Bernardino as a clerk and upon retiring, was the Assistant Clerk to the Board of Supervisors. She was a member of and held a number of offices for: American Business Women’s Association, Republican Women’s Association and San Bernardino County Retirement Board.

Coby leaves behind Yvonne, Jimmy, DeeDee, Jimmy & Lisa Hinkle and several other special families she considered her adopted children. Grandchildren: Amber, Cheyenne, Camiee, Brianna, AJ, Steven, James and Kimberly to name a few, as well as many great grandchildren. She joins Renee her granddaughter and other friends and family that have passed before her. She loved her family dearly.

Coby's warm smile and genuine love for people resulted in her having many friends. She loved the Savior, music, singing, dancing, playing games, going to church, the theater, Road Trips, and going on cruises.

There has never been a more loving, kind, generous, happy-about-life, and just overall wonderful person as our dear Coby. She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

I don’t think I can ever remember a time without Aunt Coby being in my life. She brought me joy, laughter, and many times game after game to play deciding who was going to clean what room in her house. I’d watch the kids while she went out to go dancing. I remember having dinners at her house and Dessira would play with the other kids while I watched her play cards with her mom and dad. I don’t think I can remember a time when she wasn’t always on a diet too. And one time I came over and she had a huge pot of some kind of red soup. I couldn’t help myself but laugh. Because to me she always looked wonderful. She enjoyed life to the fullest with that little girl giggle. I will miss her love, laughter and generous heart.

I will never forget the true friendship we shared. Coby was the most honest, sweet and caring person I have ever come in contact with. We first met in 1971 while working at the County. We retired about the same time in 2001. From the day we met we had an unexplainable connection. She shared her birthday with my younger son, Michael (5/20) and her daughter DeeDee shared her birthday with me (10/17). We had many luncheons just to be with each other and get caught up with family issues. I have so many memories of Coby. I will never forget her.
