Kathleen A. Thomas Hinshaw of Phoenix, AZ, died November 11, 2004.  She was born July 5, 1931, in Phoenix, AZ, to parents Warren E. Thomas and Anna Ruth Thomas.  An honors graduate of Creighton Elementary School, Kathy graduated in the 1949 class from Phoenix Union High School as Salutatorian.  She was elected President of the Associated Womenís Students at Phoenix College in 1950, was president of the Honor Board and named Outstanding Woman of her graduating class.  Kathy is a graduate "With Distinction" from the Arizona State University and taught for a season at Machan Elementary School.  This was the beginning of a forty-year career as an elementary teacher in four states.  

In December of 1952 Kathy married Lawrence A. Hinshaw of Phoenix and heard with him the call to Christian Ministry through the United Methodist Church.  While Larry was receiving his education at Boston University School of Theology, Kathy taught in the Melrose School and later at Rockland.  She paired with Larry in ministry at the Church Hill United Methodist Church in Norwell.  

While husband Larry was ministering in Hawaii, Kathy taught at the Mae Mae Elementary School in Honolulu.  

When the family was transferred to Los Angeles, Kathy taught at Woodland Hills, and was founder of the Newcastle Nursery School at St. Paulís United Methodist Church in Encino.  

Later, Kathy taught at the La Escuelita Pre School in Tucson, and at the Laguna Elementary School.  In Phoenix she taught at the Las Lomas and the Vista Elementary Schools in the Kyrene District until her retirement.  

Kathy and Larry are parents of three daughters, Laurel Lynne Stuebing (Carl) of Portland, Oregon, Deborah Suzanne Hinshaw of Phoenix and Carol Jean Jones (Mark) of Tucson.  She is survived by them and by grandsons Michael and Eric and granddaughter Lauren.  She is also leaving behind a multitude of friends who will miss her dearly.  

Kathy was an extraordinary teacher and a remarkable mother and pastorís wife.  She had many other interests as well, serving for a time as a docent at the Heard Museum and as a member of the Goodwill Industries Auxilliary.  For many she is most remembered for her shared ministry role as Pastorís wife in her husbandís several congregations where she was greatly loved.  She is a co-founder of the Arizona Walk to Emmaus.  

She traveled widely to Europe, Ireland and England, the Middle East, Africa, the Mediterranean and the Orient as well as Mexico and South America.  

Although Kathy lived a full, exciting life and accomplished many things, she will be remembered and missed most for her sparkling personality, her generous heart, and her ability to make everyone in her life feel unconditionally loved.  She was a leader, a buoyant presence, a wonderful listener, and a great lover of life.  She will be greatly missed by all.  

There will be a Memorial service in her honor at the Central United Methodist Church, 1875 N.
