Hilton N. Stinson

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday March 14, 2019, from the chapel of Dunklin and Daniels Funeral Home for Hilton N. Stinson, who went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday March 10. Burial will follow at Shackleville Cemetery. The Rev. Chris Mosley and the Rev. Felton Stewart will officiate. Visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 a.m. until the time of service.

Mr. Stinson, a graduate of Greenville High School, served in the National Guard and lived and worked in Butler County all of his life. Many will remember him during his 53 years as manager of A&P Grocery, Piggly Wiggly Grocery and later after his “first retirement” as co-manager of Super Foods/Food Depot in Luverne. He was a man who always put God first and loved his family dearly. He was known for his love of people and the ever present smile on his face.

His wife of 54 years, Bettie Jo Simmons Stinson, and brother, Billy Joe Stinson, preceded Mr. Stinson in death.

Survivors include his two daughters, Anita Kim Stinson and Karen Ilene Duncan (Joey), both of Greenville; honorary grandchildren, Whitney Nicole Jacks and Joshua Calvin Jacks, both of Alabaster, and many nieces and nephews.

Flowers are being accepted or donations can be made to The American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478 Oklahoma City, OK 73123.
