Susan Marie Kimball - Obituary

S

usan Marie Kimball – Sue – passed away on Monday, October 11, 2021 in the company of her dear friends. Sue is the daughter of James and Ruth Kimball, who preceded her in death. Sue was born on February 25, 1954 and grew up in Fort Washington, Maryland. She attended Fort Foote Elementary, Oxon Hill High School, and went on to receive her Bachelor of Science degree from Salisbury State College in May 1977. Sue worked for 27 years as a Physical Education teacher for Arlington County Public Schools at George Washington Middle School, Thomas Jefferson/Swanson Middle School, Oakridge/Randolph Elementary School and Hoffman Boston Elementary School. In addition to teaching children, Sue was a CPR instructor for INOVA Hospital System and taught aerobics classes. After retiring from Arlington County Public Schools, Sue worked part-time for St. Louis Catholic School in Alexandria, Virginia as a teacher for the after school child care program. While Sue didn’t have biological children of her own, she had many very special children in her life. Sue dedicated her entire life to teaching and caring for children. Sue made sure that every child she encountered knew they were important and loved. In addition to her students, Sue had many children in her life that considered her a member of their family. Sue was always there to cheer on “her children” – at baseball games, dance recitals, soccer games, theatre performances, band concerts, swim meets, etc. Sue made every effort to attend Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, birthday parties, graduations, and weddings. She was known for delivering homemade birthday treats and care packages to her kids containing their favorite treats and special gifts. Sue unconditionally loved “her children” and they always knew they could count on her. She will be dearly missed by the many children, some now adults, she considered to be her family. Sue loved life and loved people. She lived life to the fullest. One of her fondest life memories was attending the 1980 winter Olympics in Lake Placid and 1984 summer Olympics in LA. Sue’s favorite place was the beach. She fondly remembered beach vacations with her family to Bethany Beach. As an adult, she continued summer beach vacations with friends. Sue was happiest wearing flip flops and a Life is Good T-shirt. Friends are invited to Susan's Life Celebration from 10 a.m. until the start of the service at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at the KALAS FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, 6160 Oxon Hill Rd., Oxon Hill, MD 20745.
