Ina Lucille McKinney, 94, Sheridan, passed away Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 at Parkwood Healthcare in Lebanon.

Born Sept. 6, 1924 in Strawtown, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late John Earl and Loretta (Hughes) Irion.

She attended Walnut Grove High School and made Hamilton County her home for most of her life. Quilting was by far her favorite hobby. She enjoyed making things for her friends and family. When it came to quilting, Mrs. McKinney didn't really need a project or a special occasion, she just did it and would find the perfect need for it later. She also liked to playing cards. She would never turn down a game whenever the opportunity presented itself. She also liked to stay as active as she could, and maintaining her property seemed to fit the bill. She really enjoyed mowing and tending to her garden.

She married Alton Wayne Mckinney on on April 3, 1943. He passed away on Jan. 26, 2005. The one thing that she took the most pride in however, was her wonderful family.

Survivors include her son, Stephen W. (Donna) McKinney of Sheridan; her daughter, Barbara (Bill) Hanshew of Sheridan; eight grandchildren, Elaine (Bob) Cuban of Illinois, Angela Leisure of Sheridan, Loretta (Chris) Yates of Carmel, Wren (Margaret) McKinney of Sheridan, Levi  (Leah) McKinney of Sheridan, Jeremy (Tonya) McKinney of Sheridan, Megan McKinney of Sheridan and Jeff Soden of Sheridan; 14 great-grandchildren; one brother, Edgar (Melva) Irionof Strawtown; and a sister, Ione Meeks of Tipton.

Other than her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; two daughters, Beverly Terry and Carole Ann Irion; and by three sisters, Eva, Ethel and Ella.
