LIME RIDGE

Farm leader, activist and dairy farmer John Glenn Kinsman, 87, of Lime Ridge, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family after a short illness, on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014.

He was known to many as a passionate, energetic, outspoken, hardworking man who lived every minute to the fullest. He was a conservationist, a humanitarian, and a civil rights and family farmer activist and was involved in many organizations, groups and causes. More on his life has been posted with the Family Farm Defenders website at familyfarmers.org.

Kinsman was born at home on April 13, 1926 to Tillie and Glenn Kinsman. He graduated from Lime Ridge Grade/High School, enlisted in the Navy on Jan. 28, 1945 and served as a radio operator until 1946.

He married Jean Pronold on June 10, 1950 at St. Luke's Church in Plain. He and his family farmed all his life until he sold the cows in November 2013. He and Jean raised 10 children on their small organic dairy farm just west of Lime Ridge.

John is survived by the love of his life, wife Jean Kinsman and their 10 well-loved children; John (MaryAnn) Kinsman, David (Marilyn) Kinsman, Marilyn (Muhammad) Kharbush, Joanne (John) Chamberlin, Paul Kinsman, James (Kathy) Kinsman, Mary (Darrell) Westphal, Susan (Bill) Hunter, Annette (Mike) Koester, and Mark Kinsman (Greg Medina.)

He is also survived by 38 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren (three more on the way), and 2 great-great grandchildren, his brother Philip (Mary Lou) Kinsman, and brothers-in-law Don Beck and Dr. Ronald Engerman. He is preceded in death by his siblings Evelyn Collings, Dorothy Beck, Marian Engerman, and great granddaughter Marissa Kinsman.

A mass of Christian burial will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church in La Valle at 10:30 am on Saturday, Jan. 25. Visitation will be held at the Hoof Funeral Home in Reedsburg from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24. A short visitation will be held prior to the service on Saturday at the church from 9:30–10:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, his family asked that memorials be made to Family Farm Defenders.
