  • Reverend George E. Stinebrook, 72, of Carthage, Mo., went home to be with The Lord, Thursday, May 30, 2013, at Freeman Hospital, Joplin, Mo.  
    He was born Jan. 27, 1941 at Piggott, Ark., to the late Earl and Dorothy Stinebrook.  George graduated from Qulin High School in 1960.  
    George and Carolyne Bradshaw were united in marriage, March 8, 1963 at Poplar Bluff, Mo. The couple resided in Nevada, Mo., where they lived for 15 years, before moving to Carthage in 1977. They recently were blessed to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.
    George retired from the Railroad after 41 years. After retirement, he worked for the Ole Glory Car Wash in Webb City, Mo. He worked the Sno-Biz Shaved Ice for years at the girls’ softball field in Carthage and many area local events.  
    George’s passion for the Lord led him to become an ordained Baptist minister. He taught Sunday School, lead life groups, and pastored sermons, weddings and funerals of friends and loved ones. He was a member of Forest Park Baptist Church. He mentored to many and showed such kindness and compassion to others.  
    George was always quick to lend a helping hand whenever there was a need. George and Carolyne volunteered at Mercy McCune-Brooks Hospital, board of the Humane Society, and the Red Cross. They both spent many days at the YMCA, Hardees and Senior Center with friends.
    George is preceded in death by brothers, Neely and Vernon Stinebrook, and sister Elsie Mae.  George is survived by his wife, Carolyne, of the home, two sons, Allen Stinebrook of Carthage, Douglas and wife, Kelli Stinebrook of Carthage; grandchildren Abbi Dobbins and husband, Lars of Joplin, Andrew Stinebrook and Rebekah Bailey; brother Clinton and wife, Mary Stinebrook of Millstadt, IL, Catherine Stevens of Marble Hill, Mo., niece Susan Conner and husband, James of Carthage, Mo., and numerous other special nieces and nephews.
    Services will be held Monday, June 3, 2013 at 10 a.m. at Fairview Christian Church in Carthage. Visitation will be 2-4 p.m. Sunday June 2, 2013 at Ulmer Funeral Home, Carthage. Burial will be at Park Cemetery, Carthage.
