Phyllis Lou (Williams) Kimball, age 92, peacefully passed away April 29, 2021, at the Wintergreen Care Home.

Phyllis was born on November 1,1928, in Lincoln, Vermont, the daughter of the late George and Beulah (Griggs) Williams.

Phyllis met the love of her life, Elmer W. Kimball, at the Burnham Hall in Lincoln.  They were married May 5, 1950.  Together, they celebrated 62 amazing years until Elmer’s passing in 2012.

Phyllis graduated from Castleton College in 1949 with a degree in teaching.  She taught at a rural school in Bristol.  She loved teaching, however, once she had her own children, she wanted to spend all her time with them.  The family moved to Brandon in 1955.  Her greatest joy in life was her family.  She loved caring for her family and her home, always striving to make others feel special and loved.  Her favorite season was autumn, loved rides on dirt roads surrounded by trees, babies, roses, taking walks, cats and anything yellow.  Most of all she loved spending time with her family.

Phyllis is survived by her son, William R. Kimball and wife, Deborah of Leicester, three daughters, Marlene P. Rubeor and husband, Duane of Texas, Kathy A. Webb and husband, Charlie, also of Texas and Pamela R. Reed and husband, Jeffrey of Brandon, and daughter-in-law, Cindy Kimball of Lincoln, eight grandchildren, twelve great- grandchildren, several nieces and nephews.  Besides her husband, Phyllis was predeceased by her son, Elmer L. Kimball, her great-grandson, Sawyer Hanson and her sister, Reatha Gromoshak.
