Beverly Jean (Sand) Kimble passed away peacefully at her home in Manchester, WA after an extended illness.

Bev’s early life was spent at Point Roberts with her parents, Agnes and Einar Sand, two brothers, Larry and John, and two sisters, Mary Lou Cory and Dorothy Donaldson. 

She and her husband George (deceased) had two children, Kathy and David, who both live in Kitsap County.

After raising her children, Bev got her teaching degree and taught school in Kent, WA along with her husband.

After her husband passed away, Bev spent 19 years teaching at an American military school in Iceland, the birthplace of her mother. 

Because of Bev’s presence in Iceland, many members of her American family came to visit and extend friendships with their Icelandic relatives. 

Bev is survived by her son David Kimble, his daughter Chloe, and his wife Joice, all of Manchester, her daughter Kathy Kimble of Bremerton, siblings John and Dorothy, both of Blaine, nine nieces and nephews, and many relatives in Iceland.

Bev will be very much missed by her close friend Nancy, a fellow teacher and Sigrun, her Icelandic cousin, and her family. 

At Bev’s request, there was no service. 

Bev’s adventurous spirit will be greatly missed.
