Sad News about kymaiden40215 - Mary Ann
Mon, 01-21-2013 - 1:13pm

I've been a lurker for a long time and have learned so much from your board.  I have always enjoyed Mary Ann's postings.  Having Louisville ties myself, I often pull up their local newspaper online to see what's going on there. 

I felt horrible sadness when I read Mary Ann's obituary in their paper this morning.  It said she passed away on January 18th, 2013.  It mentioned she was preceded in death by her beloved Raymond, and survived by her son Michael, ( with his wife, Debra. )  Mentioned a sister-in-law as well as a niece.  It said her memorial mass will be this Wednesday at 10 a.m. 

Broke my heart... 

If you want to read the obituary yourself, go to and click on the obituary title on the far right at the top.  There's a drop-down menu that takes you to the individual names and you can click on hers.  Her name was Mary Ann Kimbler,  published today, the 21st.  I know many people here had great affection for her, and she cared very much for others on this board as well.   I believe she'd want you to know of her passing.  What a special lady she was...

Thank you so much for sharing, Michelle.  When posters disapear we rarely find out why.

As sad as this is, she struggled in a way that I am relieved for her.  She can now be with her dear Raymond.  

Since I know many people will be reading this, does anyone here know anything about Kate - Smallchange?

Thanks for posting Michele, I had wondered how she was doing. At least we know what she is back with her Raymond and finally at peace. I haven't heard from Kate in months and I am very worried about her as well!

Can we ask a moderator to email Kate? (PM may not be able to reach her if, for some reason, she has chosen not to check iVillage.)

Thank you for letting us know what happened.  While it's sad that she is gone, at least she is with Raymond again.
