Gail Marie (Harden) Kinsella

May 28, 1955 — July 25, 2023

Princeton, Kansas

May 28, 1955 - July 25, 2023

Gail Marie Kinsella, 68, a woman of remarkable compassion and unwavering love, bid farewell to this world on July 25, 2023, at her cherished home in Princeton, Kansas. Born in North Carolina, Gail's life was a testament to her deep connection with animals, her green thumb, and her creative spirit.

From an early age, Gail's heart was open to the world of animals. Her home was a sanctuary for horses, chickens, dogs, and cats, all of whom she lovingly referred to as her "fur babies". The joy and fulfillment she found in caring for her animal companions were immeasurable, leaving a lasting impact on the lives of these creatures she held dear.

Gail's love for gardening and nature blossomed throughout her lifetime. In her Nebraska home, she cultivated a beautiful garden with rhubarb, strawberries, and roses, creating a tranquil oasis where she could find peace and serenity. Her passion for gardening led her to be recognized as a Master Gardener of Greater Kansas City, a title that was a testament to her dedication and expertise in nurturing the natural world.

An adventurous spirit, Gail approached life with vigor and enthusiasm, fearlessly exploring new hobbies and interests. Her innate creativity found expression in various crafts, and her business endeavors often reflected the fusion of her love for animals, gardening, and artistic pursuits.

Gail's legacy is etched in the hearts of her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur Michael and Bennie Louise (Crank) Harden. She is survived by her partner Dave Vigness and four children: Phillip (Tanya) Ring Jr., Amanda (Tommy) Lynch, James (Brittany) Kinsella Jr., and Elizabeth (Danny) Arland. Her presence in their lives was a guiding light, nurturing them with love, compassion, and boundless support. Gail's 3 grandchildren: Ariel (Trevor) Ring, Blakely White-Kinsella and Kellen Lynch and 2 great-grandchildren: Kayden and Serena Anzalone brought immense joy to her life, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

A funeral visitation to honor Gail's life and legacy will be held 12-2pm Thursday, August 3, 2023, at Amos Family Funeral Home, 10901 Johnson Drive, Shawnee, KS 66203. Friends and family are invited to come together to celebrate the remarkable woman Gail was, the countless lives she touched, and the love she shared.

As we bid farewell to Gail Marie Kinsella, may her memory be a source of inspiration and comfort, and may her spirit continue to live on in the hearts of those she touched with her kindness and compassion.

"And remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others" - L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz
