Karla Hinnard


Karla Hinnard, age 50, passed peacefully from this life into the loving arms of Jesus on December 28, 2022. She was born on August 22, 1972 in San Angelo, Texas.

Karla grew up in Robert Lee, Texas where she graduated from Robert Lee High School, class of 1990. While in High School Karla won 1st place her junior year for persuasive speaker and 2nd her senior year. Karla also received a triple major in English, Government and Psychology. She also had her associates degree in nursing where she worked at San Angelo Shannon Memorial Hospital. Karla didn’t stop there, she loved to write and was very talented at it. Karla wrote and published two books of her very own. There wasn’t a day that Karla wasn’t good at giving moral support, one of her latest ways to spread encouragement was handing out handwritten cards or notes with a tea bag to hopefully spread some joy to others. Karla’s Christian faith was an essential part of her life. Karla loved the Lord and going to church. She was exceptionally knowledgeable of the Word of God and loved reading her bible. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and her church family. She enjoyed teaching and helping others.

In 2015 Karla and John married on November 29 and shared 7 wonderful years of marriage, even though they have known one another since grade school. In 2015 Karla was diagnosed with Addisons disease where she battled a long hard fight which entailed many days traveling back and forth to get treatments, countless hospital trips and too many medications, but she did not let this disease define her and still pressed through and made sure she always had a smile on her face. That’s just the type of person she was.

Karla is preceded in death by her father Ray Aldridge and a host of aunts and uncles.

Those left with cherished memories are her loving husband John Hinnard of Kaufman, Texas, mother, Leta Aldridge of Robert Lee, Texas, two daughters Hanna Smith and husband Jim Bob and Hunter Hamrick, sister Kristi Buddin of Robert Lee, Texas and brother William Aldridge of Virginia, two grandsons Nikolai Smith and Kodiak Smith along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family and friends who will miss her immensely.
