Brittany Michelle Clines, 35 of Nixa, passed away on September 11, 2023.

Britt worked first in graphic design and career took off and she went to work at Cushman & Wakefield. At the time of her death, Britt was a Clinical Strategy and Practice Lead, working to improve health care outcomes for seniors throughout the country.  Britt’s greatest blessing in life was getting to help parent Zoey, the daughter of her former partner but forever friend Gregg McKenzie.

Britt is survived by her mother and step-dad, Suzy and Kevin Whitworth; her father and step-mother, Mike and Tonya Clines; her grandparents Jerry & Joyce Clines and Lois Hayes. Her step-grandparents are Jerry and Karen Whitworth and Carl and Mona Kehn.

Also surviving Britt are step-sisters Katie Whitworth and  Kelsey Miller,  along with Kelsey’s husband Chris and daughter Tatum. Britt and her step-sisters supported each other through a particularly difficult last 18 months. She loved them deeply.  In addition, many aunts and uncles survive her: Mark and Angie Patrick, Greg & Kelly Shoemaker,  Pat Hayes, and Tom and Katie Hayes. Her cousins include Brady & Abi Ghan  and their daughter Margo, Bailey Ghan; Connor, Emily, & Lauren Hayes;  Adam, Rachel & Olivia Shoemaker; and Hudson & Jude Hayes.  Britt is also survived by her dogs Remy “Beanie” Clines and Lulu “Scuba” Clines.  They will live out their days with Kevin, Suzy, and their doggo uncles. 

No services are planned at this time, but celebrations will be held later.
