The Rev. Linda Ann Kimball, 80, passed peacefully February 2, 2024, at Marshwood
Center after a short stay. She was born October 19, 1943, in Old Town, ME, daughter of
Ethel (LeBreton) and Albert Morancy. She graduated from Thornton Academy in 1961,
from the University of Maine Orono in 1965, and from Bangor Theological Seminary in
Linda married George L. Kimball of North Waterford, ME, in 1966 at the congregational
church in Saco, ME. Throughout their 57 years of marriage, they lovingly supported
each other through all phases of life; creating a home and community to raise 3
children, Jean, Steven, and Susan in Rumford, ME, putting them through college for
nearly a decade, and retiring to Gray in 2012.
Along with raising children, Linda wore many hats over the course of her life, including
teaching math at Telstar High School in Bethel, ME, and substitute teaching in many
western Maine school districts. She also held administrative and accounting positions
over the years at several organizations, including Ekco Wood Products, Daniels
Construction, Boise Cascade Paper Company, and H&R Block.
Once her children were grown, Linda received her Masters of Divinity from Bangor
Theological Seminary and embarked on the most rewarding chapter of her life. She was
ordained as a United Church of Christ (UCC) minister and was called to service at East
Sumner Congregational Church in East Sumner, ME, and Mission Congregational
Church in West Paris, ME, where she served these congregations for several years.
She also served for a time at Mexico Congregational Church and as a chaplain for
Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice. She continued to perform marriage and
funeral services in many Maine communities after retirement.
Linda loved to sew and knit and even tried her hand at weaving. She filled the lives of
loved ones with beautiful, handmade wedding and prom dresses, quilts, baby blankets,
socks, and afghans. She was an active member of the Mexico Congregational (Green)
Church and Windham Hill United Church of Christ, contributing her talents in many
capacities at the local and state levels. Linda also loved travel as well as puzzles and
games and shared these loves with her children and grandchildren. Back in the day,
Linda and George made lifelong friendships as part of bridge club and square dance
communities. She made a difference in the lives of so many throughout her life and will
be greatly missed by all those she touched.
Linda was a devoted grandmother to her 3 grandchildren, Parker, Brady, and Laura.
Parker, now 24, brought her great happiness as her first and only grandchild for more
than a decade. During Brady and Laura’s infancy, she traveled to Western
Massachusetts and dedicated two days a week to their care, enabling them to remain
home with family. She was happiest when sharing in the lives of her grandchildren.
Linda was predeceased by her father Albert “Pete” Morancy, mother Ethel (LeBreton)
Psomiades, stepfather Van Psomiades, and sister Norma (Morancy) Doody.
Linda is survived by her husband, George Kimball of Gray, ME, daughter, Jean Kimball
and her husband Brian Woodring of Westbrook, ME; son, Steven Kimball and his wife
Lurinda of Bangor, ME; and daughter Susan Kimball and her husband David Hamilton
of Amherst, MA. She is also survived by the greatest joys of her life, grandchildren
Parker Kimball, Brady Hamilton, and Laura Hamilton as well as many cousins, nieces,
A celebration of life will be held at Windham Hill United Church of Christ at 11AM on
Saturday, February 10th.
