Kymberly Sue Cotton, 54, of Granby, beloved wife for 33 years of Stephen Sumner Cotton, Sr., passed away peacefully on Friday, December 4, 2015 surrounded by her family at her daughter's home in Coventry. Born in Hartford on November 30, 1961, daughter of Susan (Taylor) Heller of Granby and the late John Heller, Sr., she was a lifelong resident of Granby and a graduate of Granby Memorial High School, Class of 1980. Kymberly started her career at Mt. Sinai Hospital and transferred to St. Francis Hospital after Mt. Sinai was acquired. She loved her work and retired as a unit secretary in April after over 31 years of service. Kymberly was a gifted dancer when she was younger, and a talented artist who enjoyed painting and drawing a variety of subjects and scenes. An avid reader throughout her life, her interests spanned from the classics to world religions, to physics. Most of all, Kymberly loved to spend time with her family, especially her husband, her children, and her grandson. Whether it was taking a walk to her favorite spot on Salmon Brook behind her home or watching a Boston Bruins game, she was happiest when she was surrounded by her family. She looked forward each year to her annual vacation to York, Maine with her extended family and more recently to Galway, NY where she enjoyed sailing with her son-in-law on Galway Lake. When she learned that her illness was terminal earlier this year, Kymberly continued to live life to the fullest taking trips every month including a trip to California, a safari, taking plane rides, experiencing the 4th of July in Boston and visiting family and friends across the country. She chronicled her adventures on her Facebook page and inspired countless people with her tireless spirit over the last seven months. Besides her husband Stephen and her mother Susan, she leaves a son, Stephen S. Cotton, Jr. of San Francisco, CA; her daughter and full-time caregiver, Jena Grey and her husband Christopher of Coventry; her grandson whom she cherished, Ryan Grey of Coventry; a brother, John R. Heller, Jr. and his wife Dale of Granby; two sisters, Heidi Flowers and her husband Jim of Granby and Elizabeth Scholl of Newington; two sisters-in-law, Rev. Jane Wilson of Wells River, VT and Susan Cotton Cooke of Granby; her nieces and nephews and their spouses and significant others, Kristin and Keith, Chelsea and Mike, Kate and Josh, Jaime and Forrest, Kevin and Kate, Kelsey and Rob, David, Elizabeth and Denis, Danny and Davin, Jason and Lindsay, and Melissa and Adam; and two great nephews, Mikey and Jaxon. She was predeceased by a brother-in-law, Rev. R. Ward Wilson. Her family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 9, 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m., at the Hayes-Huling & Carmon Funeral Home, 364 Salmon Brook St., Granby. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held on Thursday, December 10, 11 a.m., at the Hayes-Huling & Carmon Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Granby Cemetery, Granby. Earlier this year, Kymberly's team, "Kym's Soldiers" was the largest fundraiser for the ALS Walk in Hartford County. In memory of Kym's fighting spirit, the family has requested that memorial contributions be made to The ALS Association Connecticut Chapter, 4 Oxford Rd., Unit E4, Milford, CT 06460 or by visiting, Additionally, Kym's Brother John will be celebrating Kym's life in a music concert at the Infinity Music Hall, donating all proceeds to the ALS association.
