Mary M. Kinkele – Military Spouse and Mother

Date Icon Publish Date

Dear Friends and Family:It is with sorrow that I write to tell you that Mary died Friday, March 7th, 2003 in Santa Monica, California.  She had gone there Wednesday with her father who received bad news earlier that day, to get away and visit Bret for a change of scenery.  She drove her brand new car, a replacement for the new Beatle which was in an accident a couple of months ago.  She passed away peaceful in her sleep from still undetermined causes.

Bret and I returned to Las Vegas on Wednesday with her remains.  As you probably don't know, Mary's mother died on the first of February, at age 91 here in Las Vegas after a brief illness.  To say the least, it's been a tough year so far.

Mary will be buried, following a funeral service at the Old Post Chapel on Ft. Meyer at 1pm, Thursday April 17th,  2003 at Arlington National Cemetery next to her son Scott.  A reception will follow at the Ft. Meyer Officer's Club.  I pray that she will finally find the peace she has never had since Scott's murder.  Mary will be sincerely missed.

Her husband of twenty-eight years,
John (Jack)
