Kay M. Jinks-Gavin

HILTON - On Saturday, March 30, 2019, Kay Jinks-Gavin passed away at age 78. Kay was a loving and caring wife and mother. Always up for an adventure, she loved to travel, whether it be to distant lands (Australia, Brazil, Singapore, England, France…) with Doug or just tooling around upstate NY on the back of a motorcycle and relaxing in Florida with Tom. She cherished her time with family and friends most and it made for a wonderful life.

Kay is predeceased by her 1st husband, Douglas D. Jinks, her 2nd husband, Thomas C. Gavin, Jr., and son, Allyn D. Jinks. She is survived by her brothers Larry (Maria) Ferenbaugh and Roger ( Delta) Ferenbaugh; children, Douglas D. (Lou Ann) Jinks, II, Darren K. (Daniel) Jinks and Katia (Michael) Ward; grandchildren Douglas D. Jinks, III, Alex Jinks, Jason (Katie) Woodson and Georgiakay Jinks; step-children, Tom (Peggy) Gavin, Robin Guy, and Cindy Liebenguth; several cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Friends may call Saturday (April 6th) 12-2 PM at Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, 1075 Long Pond Road, where her Funeral Service will be held 2:00 PM in the funeral home chapel. Interment will be held in Dale Memorial Park, Richmond, VA, at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Open Door Mission,, 156 Plymouth Avenue N., Rochester, NY 14608.
