On the 12th day of February 2018, Sybil Cooper Kimbrell, wife of Samuel Kimbrell, after a long painful battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, slipped out of this earthly body into that sure paradise prepared by Christ, our Savior for those who believe in Him. Shout you saints and angels of God for a chosen one and my true love is now among you. There will be no public service for Sybil at her request. The family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff of the Elizabeth House for their attentive, compassionate care.
Looking back at Sybil's and Sam's life together....
Sybil and I were married for almost 51 years. A second marriage for each of us, so it was hard, but we were in love so we struggled through it. Sybil truly had a marvelous gift. A love of people and the ability to see when someone was troubled, and put them at ease, so they felt comfortable talking to her. She touched the lives and helped many people who will never forget her kindness. As the song I wrote says, she had a hard early life that I was not part of, but became a part of her life. We lived to see better days and I am glad for it because we fell more in love as time went by, for God opened our eyes to see what true love is. Sybil was and is a beautiful woman.
As the Bible says, Abraham believed God and it was accounted a righteousness to him. Sybil believed Christ and He became her righteousness and mine, as He does with all who believe He is the son of God. Sybil is rejoicing in paradise with all those who went before, waiting for my arrival. I will be there soon, it won't be long my true love.
Precious Sybil...As our family says our good byes, I want to thank you for all you have done in your lifetime for your family. There is just too many to list. Your discipline, courage, and love of the Lord saw you through all those many years. Always helping someone and the way you lived your life. Hopefully we can use your example of what a true lady is, and live our lives by that. Our hearts are broken, but we have the certainty of knowing we will see you again. We know that Heaven is a beautiful place, where all of our family will be one day. Good bye for now in Gods love. Your niece, Rhonda Huggins
