August 9, 1967 - May 21, 2021
Courtney joined the Lord in heaven on Friday, May 21, 2021 following her courageous battle with breast cancer. Courtney was born on August 9, 1967 and was age 53.
From an early age, Courtney became a devout Christian as a result of her religious experiences at Highland Park United Methodist Church and faith-based Sky Ranch. Courtney loved horses and became a wrangler and served as a camp counselor at Sky Ranch.
Courtney was a graduate of Highland Park High School, the undergraduate program at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas School of Law. During her attendance in law school, she clerked for the Texas Supreme Court. Following graduation from law school, she passed the challenging California bar exam and practiced law in California. Upon her return to her roots in Texas, Courtney specialized in oil & gas law and entered private practice in Dallas and Fort Worth. Ultimately, Courtney joined the Oil &Gas division of Bank of America as a vice president.
In addition to her professional career, Courtney was an extremely devoted mother to her two children, Travis and Caroline Taylor. She loved attending family events and was very close to her family members. Despite numerous challenges, Courtney always maintained an upbeat optimistic approach to life. Courtney was always focused outward on the needs of her children, her family and her friends and never dwelled on herself and her needs.
Courtney will be sorely missed by her family and friends. She is survived by her children, Travis Bennington Kincaid and Caroline Taylor Kincaid; her brother, Ronald Roy Cresswell, Jr.; the father of her children, Richard Kincaid; Courtney’s mother, Carol Cresswell; her father, Ronald Roy Cresswell, Sr. and his wife, Debby Cresswell; her aunts and uncles Linda Lambert, Robert W.
