Mrs. Aileen Harmon Sinclair, 93, of Gerton, died on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 with her loving family by her side at the family "home place".

After several years of nursing, Aileen married the love of her life, Marion. They had three children and their home was the gathering place for great times, an abundance of Ms. Aileen's fantastic cooking and ice cream. It was the kind of warm home filled with laughter that everyone in the area came to know as the "home place". She filled the home with love and God. Aileen was cooking and nursing right up until the end. She was very active in her church, Bearwallow Baptist Church. Aileen spent her life devoted to caring for others and administering to the sick. Her nursing spanned the world as she and the family followed her husband's military career. She worked at various hospitals in the area including the Veterans Administration and St. Joseph's Hospital. She was a member of the Upper Hickory Nut Gorge Community Club and the Veterans Auxiliary.
