Donavay “Doni” Germaine Kimble passed away November 11, 2020 at Life Care Center of Longmont, where she was cared for and loved for several years. She was 85 years old. Doni was born September 25, 1935 to John and Marie (Kissler) Hoke in Keenesburg, CO. She married Wilbert "Burl" Kimble on December 6, 1953 in Greeley, CO. Doni accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior at a young age and served the Lord every day. She would rise early in the morning to spend time reading God’s word and write in her journals. She kept many of those journals in her attic (there were hundreds of them) that included scriptures, lyrics to hymns and words from the Lord, as well as who she was praying for, etc.

She learned to play the piano at the age of 7 and enjoyed playing for the rest of her life until her early 80’s. She only played hymns and played for the Lord.

Doni worked many different jobs over the years while also raising 3 children. You could always count on Doni to have a meal on the table in no time when company would drop by. She loved her family dearly and prayed for them every day.

Doni was preceded in death by her husband, Burl, parents, four brothers, two sisters, and her grandson Austin Kimble.

She is survived by her children Mark (Carol) Kimble of Loveland, CO, Marlow “Low” (Debbie) Kimble of Frederick, CO, Marcy (Terry) Ardourel of Cheyenne, WY, her grandchildren David (Suzanne) Kimble, Stephen Kimble, and John Mark Kimble, great-grandsons Cooper and Brooks Kimble.

Prayer from one of Doni's many books. The date on the book is 9/1/08 - 4/9/09. This was towards the front...so I think it would be sometime in mid October to early November, 2008. See pics.

Some of my favorite memories of trips to Colorado were the visits with Grand Ma hoke, and my Aunts, Uncles, and my Cousins. A favorite visit every time that was always special was Aunt Doni and Uncle Burl's Their kids Mark, Marcy, and Low where about our age so we got along pretty good.
May the God of all peace comfort you all in this temporary loss of your mother's company until the Lord raises her to glory on that last day He has planned.

Dear Doni,
I remember the unconditional love you always gave to me.
I couldn't ask for a more kind, caring, strong in the Lord, mother-in-law.
Thank you for your love!❤️
I think back in 1998, when you saw I was struggling with depression and you did what you saw I could use help with.
At the time, we didn't know what was going on.
You brought 3 laundry baskets, one for each boy.
And asked them to put in their dirty clothes.
You'd bring them back all clean and folded.
Then a few months later, we found out I had a brain tumor and that when we found out what it was the problem.
Thank God He intervened on that one.
There was so much comfort, knowing we had you on our prayer team!
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! 🙏☝️🤗

When Life Care called me a day before Doni passed to tell us that she was unresponsive, Low and I did a FaceTime call with her. They put headphones on her and we talked, prayed, and read to her from one of her journals. I was just thumbing through pages...reading...and came across this...in her written words....a verse from a song: “Precious Lord, take my hand. Lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. Through the storm, through the night. Lead me on to the light. Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home.” We kept reading that to her and telling her how much we loved her. After that call I talked to the nurse and she said that Doni’s breathing calmed and she was relaxed. I shared with my boss the next day that we had a FaceTime with Doni and read from her journals...but I did not give him specifics about the song, etc. The next morning after she passed, my boss brought me this (see pic) and said it was one of his favorite songs. God truly does have everything under control.
