Obituary

An anchor for our family, Cynthia Hope Kimbro, passed into the arms of her Heavenly Father on March 31, 2020.
She was born on June 11, 1960 to Kenneth Kimbro and Doris (Oliver) Kimbro. Her loving parents were there to greet her as she entered the gates of Heaven. We know it was a beautiful reunion!
Cindy grew up in the Edgewood area of the southside of Indianapolis and attended Perry Township schools. She graduated from Southport High School in 1978.
Her career spanned 39 years in the transportation business. She started in 1980 with National Piggyback as a collections clerk; and was later promoted to collections manager. In 1989, she joined Mark VII and became the VP of Credit and Collections. Her final career change happened in 2002 when she started her employment with ReTrans. As VP of Credit and Collections, she established and set up their credit and collections department. She was employed with ReTrans until September 2019. Cindy loved this job; and executed her responsibilities with confidence and the expertise of years in the field. She was proud to be a part of this company.
Cindy was the current president of Arbors on Bluff Homeowners Association. She was passionate about her home and her community. Serving in this capacity is often a thankless job; but Cindy took the position seriously and always did what she felt was best for all homeowners and the neighborhood.
Cindy put a lot of time and thought into everything she did for others. This was a trademark of the person she was. For many years, Cindy hosted the family Christmas gatherings at her house. She wanted everyone to feel welcome in her home. She created a family tradition of having a saran wrap ball to celebrate the holidays; spending hours wrapping gift cards, candy and cash she had collected throughout the year – with feet and feet of saran wrap! It always made the holiday full of great fun, laughter and joy.
This lady loved to shop! She was happy to support Pier One, one of her favorite stores. She and her sisters had many fun escapades over the years as well – shopping together, being silly…and they would laugh until they were in tears. The sisters always knew that if you were interested in an item at a store but did not purchase it, many times Cindy would purchase it herself and present as a gift days later. She thoroughly enjoyed doing this. She also loved New York City shopping, having made trips there multiple times with friends and sometimes a niece or two. Cindy had her favorite New York restaurants she would dine at, loved watching Broadway shows; and was able to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall several times.
Aunt Cindy was very special to her nieces and nephews and her great nieces and nephews. She took great pleasure in spoiling them. She took them to shows and movies and enjoyed the moments they shared. The little ones grew to anticipate a treat from Aunt Cindy whenever they saw her. She was definitely special to all of them.

Cindy had a lot of friends far and near. Her friends consisted of childhood friends, former classmates, neighbors and co-workers. She had a special friendship with a few of her neighbors and we are thankful they were there to assist her when she became ill.
The family also wishes to thank those who have reached out to them over the past few weeks with prayers and concern for Cindy; and we are grateful for the love you have shown us.
Cindy is survived by– sister, Dona (Kimbro) Napier and sister, Judy (Kimbro) Widmer (Don) and brother Steve Kimbro (Lisa). She is survived by eight nieces and nephews: Chad Napier, Jennifer Stevenson, Amanda (Napier) Agresta (Tony), Ryan Stevenson, Layne (Napier) Coleman (Josh), Nate Kimbro (Danielle Mikell), Brent Kimbro (Lisa) and Jon Kimbro (Ashley Burke); ten great-nieces and nephews-Izabella Stevenson, Anthony, Elly, and Caroline Agresta, Ross, Mia and Tyler Coleman, Taytum, Claire and Weston Kimbro, stepmother Carmen Beals Kimbro, aunts, uncles and cousins. She is also survived by her beloved pet shih-tzu 'Lucy', who Cindy loved and spoiled. She was predeceased by her parents, Kenneth and Doris Kimbro.
In light of the current pandemic, there will be no visitation or funeral. The family plans to have a Celebration of Life tentatively scheduled for June 2020 at Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory, Greenwood Chapel.
Cindy's nephew, Brent Kimbro, has devoted his life to ministry at Woodlands Camp. Cindy enjoyed many years of church camp as a child, and the family would like to ask that in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to Woodlands Camp. The camp is located in Cleveland, Georgia and has a scholarship fund which enables at-risk children to attend the camp, learn about Jesus and experience an unforgettable week.
