Sally A. (Mills) Nimblett of Winthrop, died peacefully on February 2nd at her home at the age of 78. She was the beloved wife of James Nimblett.
Born in Pennsylvania, she moved many places in the military before settling in Winthrop where she graduated from Winthrop High School and met James at a dance at Fort Banks. Sally and James were married for 57 years and raised their family in Winthrop, the town that they loved.
She is survived by her children and their spouses, Thomas Nimblett of Mooresville, NC and wife, Maureen, Ruth Wayland of Boxford, MA and husband, Christian, Bobby Nimblett of Winthrop, MA and wife, Angela, and the late James John Nimblett.
She is survived by 7 loving grandchildren, Hannah, Keegan, Gabrielle, Madeline, Camille, Giselle, and Holly, who will all miss their Grammie. From selfies, to unique holiday and birthday gifts, sending the best text ever, and always commenting on social media, her impact on her grandchildren’s lives will always be a large part of them.
Her love of nursing and involvement in crafts, knitting, sewing, and quilting allowed her to be involved in many memories with many great people. Being an active member in many clubs allowed her to donate her time and skills to others as well as develop meaningful friendships that she cared about deeply.
She is survived by her brothers, Fred and Bob, and sisters, Bonnie and Debra. She reunites with her brothers John and Butch. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
