Obituary for Anna Fay Kimbrough

Anna Fay Threlkeld Kimbrough landed in the arms of her Savior Sunday, January 19, 2020 in Austin, Texas. She was 87 years old. Services include a visitation at Haskell Funeral Home, Friday, January 24, 5-7 p.m. and funeral at First Baptist Church in Haskell, Saturday, January 25, 1 p.m. with graveside following at Willow Cemetery.

Anna was born July 22, 1932 in Audrain County, Missouri to Marcellus and Edna Threlkeld. She spent her childhood in Mexico, Missouri, moving to Hannibal, Missouri during her high school years. She graduated from Hannibal-LaGrange Jr. College in 1952 and moved to Abilene, Texas to attend Hendrick Nursing School, receiving her diploma RN in 1955.

Anna met Clinton Kimbrough in downtown Abilene and they married on March 27 1955. The first of three daughters, Catherine Ann, was born March 10, 1956. Their young family moved to Haskell in 1957 where Rosemary was born in 1959 and Nancy Lynn in 1962. Anna was a true farmer’s wife, working as a nurse when crop years were sparse. She helped her husband by driving a grain truck, pulling cotton trailers to and from the gin, hoeing, moving irrigation pipe and bringing meals to the field. She also ministered to their hired workers when they or their family members were sick.

Anna attended Hardin Simmons University and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education/Biology in May 1974. Her husband Clint passed away on November 27, 1974 and she soon returned to nursing. Her 50 year nursing career included a variety of positions: Director/Instructor of vocational nursing schools in Hamlin and Stamford, Charge Nurse at Haskell Memorial Hospital and Stamford Hospital, QMRP at Abilene State School, the Brown School in Austin and Austin State School, and finishing her career at Westminster Manor in Austin. Anna moved to Abilene, Texas in 1980 then to Austin in 1987.

Anna was a devoted mom and Nanna, missing very few of her daughters’ or grandchildren’s events. In those early years, she was a member of First Baptist Church in Haskell, led the Junior Choir, sang in the Adult Choir and as her children grew up, helped as a sponsor on numerous children and youth events. Her lifelong love of all music was developed at an early age, singing and playing the piano for her mother and at church events. She could also play the ukulele, mandolin and french horn, but singing was her first love. She sang numerous solos, duets and trios in church and as a part of a barbershop trio and quartet. She directed a high school girls group called, “The Singing Six.” She was also a member of the Sweet Adelines barbershop chorus in Abilene and Austin.

After nursing, Anna spent several years helping her daughter and son-in-law at Branch Bar B Que in Austin. She enjoyed traveling and meeting new people and her smile was always remembered by those she met. Anna held God’s love and faith so tightly that multiple health issues could not deter her spirit or her smile.

Anna was preceded in death by her parents, brother George Threlkeld, brother and spouse Garland and Sally Threlkeld, husband Clinton Kimbrough, and son-in-law Mike Lingle.
Survivors include her sister, Betty Prince of Highland Haven; daughters and spouses: Catherine and Chris Carby of Austin, Rosemary and Randy Hunter of Waco and Nancy and Rick Bassham of Morgan Mill; Grandchildren and spouses, Angela and Justin Stewart of Abilene, Clint Carby of Austin, Matthew and Nicole Brown of Dallas, Sarah and Renaldo McIntosh of Manor, Dustin and Meagan Lingle of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin and Isaac Lingle of Abilene; Great-grandchildren Kylei Stewart of Waco, Roslyn and Hunter Stewart of Abilene, Ayden and Graham Lingle of Oconomowoc, and R.J. and Rozen McIntosh of Manor; as well as, numerous nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.
