Vicki Lynn Kimbrell, 60, passed away suddenly on September 22nd, 2019.
She is survived by her husband Gregg, her children, Jason (wife, Amanda) and Katherine (husband, Joe), her brother Terry, and dog, Pixie. She is preceded in death by her parents, Oesbon and Iona Kimbrell, and brother, Tim Kimbrell.
Vicki was born January 9th, 1959 in Jasper, Alabama. She graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of North Alabama, where she met her future husband, Gregg. They married in 1982 and moved to West Texas, the first of many moves to come. She gave birth to her son, Jason, in 1986, and her daughter, Katherine, in 1990. A devoted and loving mother, Vicki raised her children to know better than to talk back and charged a quarter for every curse word uttered. At her passing, the cussin’ jar was not full, a testament to her success.
After traveling the world, Vicki and Gregg retired to Bridge City to connect with old friends. An avid quilter and music fan, Vicki spent her time working in her sewing room, attending rock-and-roll concerts, and supporting the Houston Symphony. She loved playing with her Sheltie, Pixie.
Visitations will be held Monday, September 30th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM Tuesday, October 1st at Claybar Funeral Home in Orange, TX. The funeral service will be held at the same location, starting at 2:00 PM. Burial will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Garden, Orange, TX.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her name to the Hermann Eye Fund, 6400 Fannin Street, 18th Floor, Houston, TX 77030.
