Dubuque Telegraph Herald, Tue., 28 Sept. 1943.

McGregor- Funeral services for Miss Lucy Kinsley, 87, who taught school for 55 years in Iowa and Minnesota, were held in the Congregational Church here Tuesday afternoon. Burial was in a rural cemetery near the farm where she was born.

She died Saturday evening in a Toledo, O. hospital. She fractured a hip in a fall early in August when she was planning to leave Toledo to spend the summer in McGregor.

Miss Kinsley was one of 11 children born to Mr. and Mrs. Guy Kinsley, pioneer farmers of the Pleasant Ridge. She began teaching rural school near McGregor when she was 16, and later she taught in public schools in Monona, McGregor, and Marshalltown. She then went to Minnesota and for 21 years was supervisor of teachers' training at Wheaton and Detroit Lake. She retired from teaching 10 years ago.

She was a member of the DAR.

Surviving are three sisters: Mrs. Amanda Renshaw of Toledo, Mrs. Fanny Hill of Springfield, Mo., and Mrs. L. N. Kramer of Los Angeles; and three brothers, Benjamin and Rufus, both of McGregor, and Dr. Jay Kinsley of Cedar Rapids.
