JUDITH A. KIMBLE
Judith A. Kimble passed away on August 12, 2020 at Greenwich Hospital after suffering a major stroke eight days earlier. She was 75.
She is survived by her brother Brian and his wife Judy (another Judy Kimble) of Leesburg, Florida; a niece and her husband, Laurie and Kot Seen, who teach at an International School in China; a nephew, Judson, of Burlington, Vermont; and two grandnephews, Kamal and Viset, who are with their parents in China.
Judy grew up in Harrison, the daughter of Floyd and Anne (Strothkamp) Kimble. She graduated from the Academy of the Resurrection in Rye and went on to receive a BS degree in nursing. She settled in Greenwich where she was employed as a nurse at Greenwich Hospital. As years passed she became interested in psychiatric nursing and earned a Masters degree from Yale. This led to her counseling practice in Greenwich.
Upon retirement Judy began working with children serving as a crossing guard at Julian Curtiss School and Cos Cob School for almost 20 years. This season the kids will not see "Miss Judy" at her usual posts of duty. Music was a primary interest in her life. She thoroughly enjoyed her years playing bass clarinet with the Sound Beach Community Band and Hudson Valley Woodwind Ensemble. A chair and plaque in her memory will be a reminder of her significant contribution to the Hudson Valley group she loved so well.
A small gathering will be held at a later date when her life will be remembered. The date is uncertain due to Covid 19 restrictions.

To the Kimble Family:
I remember it like yesterday when Judy first entered my hospital room in 1987. She became a god-send to me for the next 33 years to come! She literally saved my life with her incredible kindness and depth of wisdom. So many times of concern or trouble over these past 3 decades, I would think of her words and it would snap me right back. She helped other family members and friends of mine as well. When she retired, I would run into her now and then. Each time she greeted me with that big smile of hers. Always genuinely glad to see me. We started meeting up after her crossing guard duties where over. We'd share tea together and catchup. I ran into her this July on the Avenue. She was wearing a t-shirt and shorts. I yelled "hey, your wearing shorts - they look so cute on you"!. She laughed and said, "don't you think I wear shorts"!. I responded, "I've never seen you in them before". We had a good laugh together. I will always remain fondly grateful to her for changing the path my life was on. Only because of her work, was I able to let go of some past demons. Last October she was there for me when my younger brother died. She called me repeatedly to offer kind words; she was there at the funeral in support of me and my family. She was a gentle soul. I will miss my friend greatly. Sincerely, Shayne Muller

It was always a pleasure when I would meet up with Judy on my walk near Cos Cob school. We became friendly and would have tea once in a while. The last time I saw Judy was when she pulled into my driveway to say hello and chat for a while. I am so sorry for her passing.

To Judy's family,
I am sorry for your loss. Judy, your name was a name I had not
seen
in many years, but I have always fondly remembered you, especially
walking the halls of Greenwich Hospital in your white lab coat. Always
with a smile on your face, you greeted everyone, staff and patients alike. You are a special lady and will be missed. Rest in peace and
God Bless You, Judy.
Respectfully,
Jackie Haight
