Funeral services are scheduled at 11 a.m. Monday at Eagle Funeral Home, Charles Fink Chapel, in Morenci with Pastor Bill VanValkenburg officiating. Interment will follow in Waldron Cemetery. Visitation is Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.

Those planning an expression of sympathy can omit flowers and instead make a contribution to the Christopher and Camille Hinkley Education Fund.
