Mildred Eileen (Brinkley) Kirk
Mildred Eileen (Brinkley) Kirk "Millie" Nov. 2, 1920 - Apr. 28, 2006 Mildred Eileen Brinkley was born in Kimble, Missouri, to John "Doc" and Ethel Brinkley. Millie was the oldest of four daughters, and moved with her family to Kern County during the Dust Bowl era. In December of 1945, Millie married her life-long friend, Martin L. Kirk. Millie and Mike were married for fifty-three years, until his death in 1999. Also preceding her in death were her beloved sisters, Lee Clasen and Marie Horton. "Nanny", as she was known to her family, is survived by her sister, Shirley Hall, of Topeka, Kansas; daughter, Diana Kirk; daughter, Deborah Tomasi and husband, Joe; and daughter, Susan Knight and husband, Dennis. Grandchildren are Melanie Wilkes and husband, Mike, Todd Mushaney and wife, Suzanne, Allison Tomasi, Sandy Gentry, John Wilson, and Amy Wilson. Great-grandchildren are Dakota Allen and Tristan Wilson. Nanny also leaves behind a beloved brother-in-law, Allen Clasen, many special nieces and nephews, and numerous dear friends. Her love, care, and sense of humor were the heart of the family. She leaves us with many wonderful memories and will be greatly missed. A special thanks to Eleanor, Tanya, Monica, and Raj Patel, M.D. Graveside services will be Friday, May 5th, 10:00 a.m., at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Bakersfield, officiated by Reverend Janelle Mahoney, followed by a gathering at the home of Joe and Deborah Tomasi.">
