Departed January 24, 2023 in Melbourne, Florida

Anna Jean (Sylvia) Kimble passed away peacefully on January 24, 2023 surrounded by her family in Melbourne, Florida at the age of 87.
Anna was born in Foxborough, Massachusetts on August 30, 1935 to Stephen Alton and Mary Elizabeth (Daler) Sylvia. She is survived by her daughter, Mary Alice (Steve) Houghtaling; son, Michael (Michelle) Kimble; daughter-in-law, Lisa (Mikey) Elfers; sister-in-law, Christine Sylvia; grandchildren, Erik, Kyle (Chelsea), Mary (Mark) Jones, and Stephen (Elise); niece, Jean and nephew, James; grand-niece, Natalie; and great grandson, Konnor. She was preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Kenneth Ralph Kimble and brother, John Joseph Sylvia.
Anna graduated from Foxborough High School in 1953 and continued her education until she received her nursing degree. She married Ken in 1962 in Foxborough and became a dedicated Navy wife until 1981, when Ken retired after 26 years. Afterward, they moved to Lake Jackson, Texas and then to Palm Bay, Florida, where she lived out the rest of her life.
Anna became an avid Bingo player while living in Florida and made many friends there. She also loved football. Her lifelong favorite team was the New England Patriots. However, her favorite pastime was spending time with her family, especially being Nana to her four grandchildren.
A small graveside memorial service is being planned for a later date in her hometown of Foxborough, Massachusetts.
