Kinsley Faith Barber was born to Sarah Leeann Nunley and Mitchell Dalton Barber on Friday, August 6, 2021. She died on Sunday, October 17, 2021, at Brenner Children’s Hospital.
Kinsley passed gently into the arms of Jesus about 4:30 am with her Mommy, Daddy, Pappy, and Aunt Kaitlyn by her side.
Our sweet baby is survived by so many loved ones who cherish the short ten weeks they had with her. Kinsley’s precious big sister, Emma Grace will surely miss her. Kinsley had many family members who passed before her… “Paw Paw” Leon Nunley and Great Grandparents,
“Nana” Nancy Sheffield, “Papa” John Barber, “Memaw” Anne Barber, Great Grandma Grace Nunley, and others, many of whom awaited her in Heaven!
Although her life here on earth was very short, Kinsley touched so many lives! She was a cherished daughter, sister, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, niece, and cousin who will never be forgotten.
Kinsley is survived by her Great Grandpa “G.G. Pa” Steve Sheffield, Great Grandma “Memaw” Katherine Murray, Great Grandpa “Papaw” Jimmy Murray, Great Grandpa James Nunley, “Nana” Sandra Murray, “Pappy” Raymond Barber, and “Grandmama” Michele Barber; her aunts and uncles, Breanna and Justin Hamlett, Kaitlyn Beane, Holly Huymaier, Mallory Barber, and Nash Barber. Miss Kinsley also leaves behind many cousins who loved her deeply.
We had hoped and prayed for a miracle for our sweet baby girl…but sometimes miracles come in the least expected ways. We believe that the Bible teaches us that every person that Jesus ever performed a miracle on, eventually died. Miracles can come through the good and the bad of life…they are designed to bring us to Jesus. We are BELIEVING that Kinsley’s miracle will lead many to Christ.
“The LORD called me before my birth; from within the womb He called my name.”
Kinsley’s life will live on in the lives of others because her Mommy and Daddy made the selfless decision to donate her heart valves to others. Her life has TRULY been a gift to so many.
