Evelyn Bee Kimball Obituary
Evelyn Bee Madsen Kimball
April 25, 1929 ~ September 27, 2012
Bee was born to Sarah Evelyn Ellsworth and Elmer Leroy Madsen and grew up in Salt Lake County the youngest of eight on the seven-acre wonderland of her family's Guernsey dairy farm. She adored her brothers Donald and Wayne and enjoyed an especially close relationship with her sisters Erma, Lela, Rae and Peggy. (Edna died in infancy.) After graduating from the University of Utah and spending a brief time working in San Francisco, she returned to become the secretary to the dean of the University of Utah law school where she met Edward L. Kimball whom she married in 1954. Bee reared a family of seven children (Christian, Paula, Mary, Miles, Jordan, Joseph, and Sarah), moving to Missoula, Montana, then Madison, Wisconsin, and finally Provo, Utah, with Ed while he taught law. She served faithfully in teaching and leadership positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was notably loyal to her large circle of family and friends. In her last days she battled multiple myeloma, but the immediate cause of death was kidney failure. She died at home surrounded by her family.
A memorial service in her honor was held Sunday, September 30, 2012.
