Cindy was born on February 5, 1956, in Columbus, Ohio, to the late Paul and Shelvie Billingsley. She was a Navy Contractor working as a Logistic Specialist at the Marine Corps Outlying Field in Atlantic, as well as the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point. Cindy loved the Lord and lived her life as an example to others, she was a member of Atlantic United Methodist Church and attended Ann Street United Methodist Church.
Her “Happy Place” was at their farm in Cluster Springs, Virginia where she and her family spent many pleasant days. Cindy was an amazing cook, and it brought her great joy to have her family around the table enjoying a good meal. She was very talented with cross stitching and always found that to be a relaxing activity. Spending time with her family was the highlight of her life. Her grandkids, who affectionately called her “Ema”, where the twinkle of her eye.
She is survived by her husband Wally Kimrey Jr. of the home; daughter, Megan Kimrey Frazer and husband Bryan of Beaufort; sons, Justin Wallace Kimrey of Benson and Christopher Graham Kimrey of Morehead City; sister, Melinda Roberts and husband Mark of Gastonia; brother, Paul Billingsley Jr. of Florida; grandchildren, Clowey Faith Goodwin, Chase Forest Goodwin, Coughlin Lucinda Frazer, and Camille Elizabeth Frazer; and nephew, Ricky Godfrey.
