Obituary for Annie Pearl Kimble
Annie Pearl Kimble died on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at St. Barnabas Hospital spital in Livingston, NJ. Annie P. Kimble, the daughter of the late Booker T. and Anna Handford was born on May 29, 1946 and raised in Donalsonville, GA. Annie dedicated her life to Jehovah and was baptized on October 10, 1998 and remained a faithful servant of Jehovah until her death. Annie attended the Seminole County Schools in Donalsonville, GA and was also known as "Sister" or "Ann" by many family members and friends. She worked many years as a seam tress at West-Tex in Ashford, Al before becoming self-employed. She was a very strong, loving and honest person as a mother, sister and friend. Whenever you walked into Annie's house, you never felt like a stranger and were welcome as family and felt the love and warmth provided. Her love for Jehovah was evident to all who knew her. Whenever a person saw Annie, one would not know if she had a bad day or not, she always had a heartfelt smile on her face. Every day to her was precious, and she was always able to show a person something good, when one was feeling down. She always stated "Pray to Jehovah" or "Trust in Jehovah". Her favorite hobby was witnessing for Jehovah. She enjoyed going out into the ministry talking to others about Jehovah's kingdom. She was a pioneer until urgent family matters required her attention. The family would like to share a little witnessing story with you. She was taking speech therapy at Kessler Rehabilitation Center in West Orange, NJ after having brain surgery. The speech therapist wanted to make sure that her memory was still intact, so he asked her, "What was the President of the United States daughters' name", and she stated, "I'm sorry, but that is not my concern; and I'm not being, rude. However, if you asked me Jehovah's son name, I can definitely share that with you and any other information regarding Jehovah". Usually, the rehab centers switch therapist, but this therapist came back every day to hear more about Jehovah. Although, he claimed that he was only there for speech. The day of her dismissal, he stated, that he truly enjoyed their conversations and always requested to meet with her himself. This was just one of the many stories of Witnessing for Jehovah. Annie was the fifth sibling of (11) eleven children. Annie was preceded in death by her parents, Anna and Booker T. Handford, Sr. and three (3) brothers, El D., Booker T., Jr. and Roger Handford. In addition, her maternal grandparents, Gussie Jones and Henry Christian, Sr; paternal grandparents, Rose Handford and Clarence Hawkins. Annie Kimble leaves to cherish her memory within their hearts, minds and soul five (5) children, Bobby(Ann) Buggs, Herman (Monique) Buggs, Rodrecus (Wanda) Kimble of Donalsonville, GA; Robin (Harry) Stokes of East Orange, NJ and Lorie (Angelo) Stewart of West Orange, NJ; two (2) brothers, Willie C. (Annette) Henry and James Handford of Dothan, AL; and five (5) sisters, Annie Grace Finney of East Orange, NJ; Rosalie Powell of Newark, NJ; Annie D. Handford, Ethel Williams and Dorothy J.
