Sally Jo Hineman-Dunaway, affectionately known as "Mimi", was a loving mother and adoring grandmother. She passed away peacefully at her home in New Braunfels, Texas on Friday, April 10, 2015 at the age of 77.

She is survived by sons: Mark Hineman and his wife Lisa, Greg Hineman and his wife Sandra, John Hineman and his wife Elaine, Kent Hineman and his wife Susan, daughter; Beth Grohman and her husband Bill. Grandchildren Derrick, Lindsey, Kendall and his wife Jenna, Keaton and his fiance' Kennah, Kenneth, Spencer, Hunter, Haley, Will and Hannah. Her sister-in-law Kathy Burney along with nieces and nephews also survives her. She was preceded in death by her husband Ken Hineman; parents John and Elizabeth Hay, father and mother-in-law Don and Peggy Brown and sister Susie Eisler.

Sally was born in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania on May 10, 1937. While attending high school in Beaver Falls, she met the love of her life, Ken Hineman. After graduation they married and began a family. In 1960, Ken was transferred bringing the family to Texas. They began in Baytown, Houston and then settled in Conroe. Sally was an escrow officer for most of her years and became a real estate agent. Her life was full with raising four boys and a daughter along with working, but always found time to volunteer for the Gray Ladies and be actively involved in teaching at church.

In 1980, Ken unexpectedly passed away. This left a huge hole in Sally's heart. She worked hard to provide for family and be the best parent to all her children.

Sally was a member of Beta Sigma Phi for many years and was also honored as Girl of the Year by her sorority. Her dear sorority sisters began monthly dinners in their later years to keep their special bond. Sally loved to bowl and Monday night bowling with her friends was the highlight. She traveled to many cities to bowl in tournaments with her friends that brought her immense joy throughout her life. Sally also loved her Tuesday night card games with lifelong friends (Peggy Stevens, Olene Heasley, Margaret Ann Yocom, Joyce Beckwith and the late Dinnie Sherrod). Her friends were her rock throughout her years.

Six years ago, Sally moved to New Braunfels to be closer to her daughter and her family. She loved being with her younger grandchildren and being a part of their activities. Sally loved her new home and made friends who began to help with her care. As Sally's health begin to fail, her family saw what a strong woman Sally was and her fight was strong all the way to the end. Her sweet spirit and sense of humor was loved by all of us.

The family would like to thank Anita Gilbert for her loving care, Neighbors, Linda, Pat and Dovie for their friendship and lastly, Hope Hospice for their care in her last days with us. We would like to thank all of our friends for their prayers and concern for Sally throughout her illness.

Visitation will be held at Cashner Funeral Home in Conroe, Texas at 2:00pm on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 with the funeral service following at 3:00pm. Interment will be at Garden Park Cemetery.
