Kimmy Hubbard

Obituary of Kimmy Lane Hubbard

     Kimmy Lane Hubbard, 63, of Cortez, Florida, passed away on November 25, 2023, following a long battle with heart failure.  Kimmy was born on July 21, 1960, to Gary and Norma Graham Hubbard Sr. at Logan, Ohio.  

     A beloved daughter, sister, and aunt, Kimmy was dealt many more hardships than any one person deserved in a lifetime, and yet she persevered through all overcoming childhood cancer at the age of 16 years and battling heart failure for over 15 years.  Despite the hardships she faced, Kimmy usually wore a smile and found happiness in even the smallest of things.  Kimmy graduated from Medina Senior High School (Ohio) in 1978.  She retired from Cleveland Clinic (Ohio) where she worked on the VIP floor for over 20 years caring for everyone from royalty to politicians and celebrities.  She bred and showed Jack Russell Terriers, loved to cook and entertain, and found great joy on any body of water.  Kimmy was a gifted artist, an avid fisherman and a skilled hunter.  After moving to Texas in 2007, her health took a turn for the worse.  Despite her frailty, she met many friends in Granbury and devoted her time to perfecting her green thumb, cooking for elderly and ill neighbors, learning to golf and enjoying Texas culture and cuisine.  With a lifelong yearning to be near water, Kimmy relocated to Florida in 2019 where she spent her last years fishing, enjoying boat rides, basking in the Florida sunshine and living life to its fullest.  

     Kimmy touched many lives and will be forever missed by her parents, Gary and Norma Hubbard Sr., and sister Kathy (Jim) Hanlon of DeCordova, Texas; brothers Gary Jr.(Denise) of Florida; Ivan (Mindy) of Georgetown, Texas; and Mark (Dena) of Medina, Ohio; her friend, Mark Johnston of Bradenton, Florida; best friend, Julie (Mark) Ward of Eastlake, Ohio; nieces and nephews: Shannon (Travis) Honaker, Melissa Sellars, Michael (Anneke) Hubbard, Eric (Katie) Hubbard, Nicole (Jess) Huber, Scott (Emily) Hubbard, Sydney Hubbard, Emily (Greg) Langdon, and Lori Hubbard; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.  Most of all, she will be missed by her loyal companion, her dog, Katie.  

     Kimmy is preceded in death by her grandparents Clarence and Kathryn Graham, and Clyde and Inez Hubbard.  

A celebration of life service will be held at a later date in Ohio.
