Lana Kimble Obituary

Lana Kay Kimble was born on October 31, 1951 in Friend, Nebraska to Vernon and Thora (Thompsen) Jensen. She attended country school her kindergarten year, Cordova Elementary for first and second grades and Exeter Public starting her third grade year through high school, where she graduated. Lana was united in marriage to Dave K. Kimble on November 28, 1992. Lana spent her working years being employed by county, city, and state governments respectively. She worked three years under the judgeship of Ray Cellars, was also village clerk for 24 years for the Village of Exeter. She finished out her career working as an administrative assistant for three state senators - Senator DiAnna Schimek, Senator Ray Aguilar and Senator Mike Gloor, at which time Lana and her husband Dave began to enjoy their retirement years spending the winters in Cape Coral, Florida.  

While Lana enjoyed her years with state government, her real enjoyment was working with the city budget for Exeter, as well as twelve rural fire districts and county townships. She also enjoyed the challenge of working with her sewing. It always brought excitement to Lana to work on any sort of house decorating, be it window treatments, bed covers or baby quilts for her friends and family. There was never a room she didn’t want to re-create and was happiest when she had a new project to work on. Above all Lana loved and appreciated spending time with her children and grandchildren. She often said that she could not express the blessings enough that were bestowed upon her while watching her children become amazing parents and watching their children grow. As all grand parents know, there is truly nothing more rewarding in life than being blessed with these gifts.  

Lana passed away on February 26, 2024 in Lincoln, Nebraska. She is survived by her husband, Dave L. Kimble of Lincoln, Nebraska; sons, Glen (Jennifer) Harre of  Omaha, Nebraska; and Shawn (Jennifer) Harre of Cordova, Nebraska; daughter, Amanda Parker (Andres) Johnson of Lincoln, Nebraska; grandchildren, Jaxon, Jordan (fiancé, Devin), Tyler, Jayden and Rylan; step children, Jeff (Heather) Kimble, Valerie Kimble and Greg Kimble, step grandchildren, Owen and Maura; brothers and sisters-in-law, Laurence and Anita Jensen, Paul and Nancy Jensen; and brother-in-law, Nick Kimble; and a host of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
