Adding special pleasure to the day for Miss Hinshaw were long distance calls from Mrs. Willaim Stanton of Miamisburg, Herbert Painter, Miss Hinshaw's nephew, of Philadelphia, and her niece, Mrs. Helen Painter Frazier of Dayton.

A teacher in Wilmington and Clinton county schools for 45 years, Miss Hinshaw is remembered kindly by a large number of persons, who attended her classes, and who were influenced by her fine principals of life and living.  She started her teaching career at Mt.
