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...

Michelle -

Thank you SO MUCH for posting this.  I am honestly glad that MaryAnn is now with her dear Raymond, she missed him so much.

As you all know, I did meet MaryAnn and Raymond in person, and they really cared about one another.  They had such a nice home in Kentucky, and Raymond gave me a gift of an African Violet I will always cherish. 

You know, she would want all of us to just scrimp a bit this much and pay a bit more on our balances - before they recalculate the interest, but after the due date !!LOL 

Gosh I will miss her.
