Judith L. Kimball Obituary
Judith Lee Kimball (Edson), of Quincy, and Forestdale (formerly of Weymouth) passed away in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 3, 2017 with her family by her side. She will be remembered for her quick wit and sharp sense of humor as well as the unwavering compassion and care that she extended to family, friends and colleagues. Judy personified living life in service to those she loved. We will miss her infamous talent for making the best of any situation, her love, her generosity and her relentless luck in winning nearly every card, dice or trivia game she played. Judy lived most of her life in Massachusetts but also enjoyed living part-time in Los Angeles where she was a hands-on grandmother to Josie and Charlotte Pease and Sylvie Buchholz. The daughter of the late Janet and Albert Edson of Weymouth and Forestdale, Judy is survived by her husband, Thomas Kimball of Quincy. She was the beloved mother of Kelly L. Kimball and to Kelly's partner Russ Buchholz, both of Los Angeles. She was a devoted sister to the late Richard B. Edson of Forestdale, and Lorraine D. Ernst of Warren, RI, who cared for her unconditionally and comforted her through endless escapades with devotion and laughter. Judy was a kind and compassionate step-mother to Karen Kimball and the late Diane Kimball of Quincy. Her step-grandchildren Rhiannon Kimball and Eric Still fondly remember Grammy Judy hosting spirited holiday get-togethers. She was an adoring Aunt to Michael Marmentini of San Antonio, TX and to Carla Cosgrove of Las Cruces, NM, with whom she always quipped "You and I are natural beauties; the rest of you have to work at it." She was also a loving great aunt to multiple nieces and nephews. Judy deeply cherished her special life-long friendship with Joanne McAuliffe; together they saw it all, did it all and always had a ball. Judy was a proud member of the International Order of Rainbow Girls and member of the East Weymouth Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School. An avid New England sports fan, she seldom missed a Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins or Patriots game. The family would like to thank the caring staff, nurses and doctors at UCLA with particular thanks to resident physician Dr. Michael Barish (aka Dr. Cutie Pie) for his distinct sense of humor and unique brand of warmth, compassion and humanity. A burial service will take place on September 15, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne. In lieu of flowers, the family would be honored to have donations made in Judy's name to the Peter's Pond Association, c/o Jan Leone, Treasurer, 10 East Road, Mashpee, MA 02469.
