Georgina “Gina” Kimes

Georgina “Gina” (Denilen) Kimes, 53, of Narvon, peacefully entered the gates of Heaven after losing her courageous battle with Breast Cancer on April, 9th 2016, surrounded by her loved ones at the University of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Coatesville, she graduated from CASH, class of 1980. She was the daughter of Rosemary (Mammarella) Ford of New Holland. She leaves behind her high school sweetheart and loving husband of 34 years, Gregory S. Kimes.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her two children, Sarah M. wife of B. Matthew Osborn, and their daughter Kaylee of Narvon, her son, Steven G. and his fiancée, Alyssa S. Kreiser of Parkesburg. She also leaves behind three sisters, Kathleen, wife of Kevin Maule of Columbia, Karen, wife of Frank Markward of Leola and Sharon, wife of the late Lewis Hall Sr. of Honey Brook, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Gina cherished the opportunity to stay at home raising her family and providing a warm environment for her devoted husband, family and friends. Her door was always open for anyone needing a place to hang out, to enjoy her great home cooking, or for those that just needed an ear to listen. She had an incredible green thumb and everything she planted flourished. The light of her life was her precious granddaughter, Kaylee, who she fondly referred to as her little Kay Bug.

A private burial ceremony will be held Saturday, April 16th. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.

  • Dear Greg, Sarah & Steven,
    We are so sorry so hear of Gina’s passing. We moved from the neighborhood in 2015 and just learned this evening of Gina’s passing. If memory serves me correctly, the last time I saw Gina was during one of our annual development garage sales and she was beaming with pride because Sarah was expecting Kaylee. Her obituary was spot on. She was always quick to open her door to anyone who needed to talk and was always so warm and generous. Greg – you and Gina were such a great couple and celebrated all of life’s highs and lows with the courage and determination of two people that were such a great team. I am so sad that Gina is not there to see her kids and grandkids grow up as I know that she would have cherished those times but know that she is watching over you all. Our deepest condolences go out to you and your family and I am so sorry we didn’t learn of this news sooner.

  • We knew Gina and her sisters from Harmony street Coatesville
    she was such an attractive young lady. We always sat on my cousin Tina Ross
    back porch and watch them do gymnastics outside. Karen was really good at it. We never knew where they moved after Coatesville address but was such a nice family and her mother Rosemary was very nice too. We are sorry to hear about Gina. We truly are sorry for your loss to the whole family. May God comfort you all at this time.

  • Karen and family and friends of Gina,
    I was very sorry to hear about the loss of your dear sister, relative and friend. I’m praying for everyone who knew Gina. From what I gather, it sounds like she was a special person. I know she’ll be missed.

  • Karen and family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and all your family and friends….now and always.

  • Dear Greg, Sarah & Steven,
    We are all very sad to hear of Gina’s passing. Ron and I will always think of your family as we remember our kids childhood times. Steven and Sarah were a BIG part of them growing up and we have so many funny stories and great memories to cherish. Gina was always around, outside gardening or simply enjoying life! I hope in time that your hearts begin to heal from Gina’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to everyone at this difficult time.

  • I am so sorry to learn of Gina’s passing
    I will treasure the memories from growing up My condolences to the family

  • We had not been in our new home, but a few months, and I remember Sarah pulling her little wagon up the hill to our house, filled with fresh picked veggies from her mom’s garden. It was Gina’s gift to us as she put it “from the heart”. That act of kindness and generosity has stayed with me for 20 years. Thank you, Gina! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  • Greg, Sarah, and Steven,
    I am sadden to hear of Gina’s passing. I know she fought very hard to get to see and be with her granddaughter. I am glad that she was given that chance. I will always remember her smile when she and Greg would come by my house on the bike. I am glad I finally got to make good on a promise for her and Lisa Jayne to see each other if even for just a short time. My thoughts and prayers for your family at this time and always…
    Lisa Shaw and family.

  • Gina, My heart is sad. I think back to our crazy high school days, especially when you signed my yearbook, it was so difficult to read because you kept turning it around and around. It looked like a big square tunnel that filled the entire page. We had so much fun. I Love You girl and You are truly missed.

  • Frank, Karen and family – so sorry to hear of the loss of Karen’s sister. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
