Betty Lou Kinser

January 30, 1940 ~ February 28, 2019 (age 79)


Betty Lou Abbott Hundley Carter Kinser passed over to be with Jesus on Thursday February 28, 2019. She was born January 30, 1940 at Monaville, WV to Minnie Agnes Milam Abbott and Clarence Ray Abbott.

She was preceded in death by her daughter: Kimberly Gail Hundley, her parents, her sister Nora Ann Abbott Browning, her brother: John William Abbott, her grandchildren: Kristina Paulette Sparks and Brandon Gene Sparks, and her husbands Paul Howard Hundley, Cole Gene Carter, and Paul Edward Kinser.

She is survived by her daughters: Lydia (Leonard) Johnson of Monroe, MI and Terri Hundley of Ethel, WV; her great grandchildren: Alexandria Sparks, Ethan Heck, both of Monroe, MI, Jala Hughes and Sarah Sparks both of West Logan, WV; and Lucie Sparks of Toledo, OH; brother: Clarence (Sylvia) Abbott II of Cleveland, OH; sisters: Gloria (Bob) England of Wilkinson, WV; Caroline Nelson of Chapmanville, WV; Barbara (William) Johnston of Cleveland, OH; step children: Paula Kinser, Jeremy (Elizabeth) Kinser and Frank Kinser of Phico, WV; as well as eight great grandchildren, two special grand-puppies; Penni and Moko, and many, many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and friends.

She was a kind and generous woman, who helped everyone she could. As many of her nieces and nephews remembered, “You could always count on a good samich at Aunt Betty’s house.” She was a rebel who worked in the factories in Cleveland , OH alongside men who didn’t want her there. But, she was really born to drive. During her career, she drove a school bus for Logan County, a taxi all over Logan County, an asphalt truck for Black Rock and a rock truck for Hobet Mining Company.

She will be missed. She will be remembered with much love. Collins Funeral Home Inc. of Switzer, WV is assisting the family with arrangements.
