PARKMAN – E. Joyce Kimball, 71, passed from this life, Nov. 7, 2006, surrounded by her loving husband and family in her home. She was born March 22, 1935, in Madison, to Harold Lester and Eula (O’Donal) Libby. One of five children, she attended schools in both Madison and Dexter. She married Harold Kimball, April 5, 1953, and lived in Parkman for the next 50 plus years. While raising a family, she worked beside her husband at their family butcher shop, cooked at the local elementary school and worked several years at Goulette’s IGA. Her life evolved around her family and her God. Joyce enjoyed working in her flower gardens, snowmobiling, fishing, genealogy, sun bathing on a hot summer afternoon and worshipping her Lord. Joyce was gifted with the ability to truly listen to others; therefore friends young and old, were quickly formed. She could often be found at her children’s and grandchildren’s sports events. She is sadly missed by her husband of 53 years, Harold Kimball of Parkman; sons and wives, Robert and Tylene Kimball of Sangerville, Bill and Mary Jane Kimball of Dover-Foxcroft; daughters and husbands, Pamela and Robert Sukis of Parkman, Terry and Andy Lovell of Sangerville; brothers, Harold Libby Jr., who predeceased her, and Marjorie Libby of Dexter, Alan and Marion Libby of Milwaukee, Wis., the Rev. Ronald and Judy Libby of Corinth; and sister and husband, Lois and Dalton Dunfee of Corinth. She is survived by nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. Friends may call 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Crosby & Neal, 21 Oak St., Guilford, and noon-1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, at the Charleston Pentecostal Church, Charleston, where a funeral service will be held 1 p.m. with the Rev. Ronald Libby officiating. Burial will be in the family lot at Pingree Center Cemetery, Parkman. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Soul’s Harbor Building Fund, P.O.
