JACKSONVILLE — A memorial service for Kimberly Lindsey, a 1982 graduate of Jacksonville High School, will be held at Central Baptist Church at 11 a.m. today, with the Rev. Dr. Darin Wood officiating.

Born April 30, 1964, in Jacksonville, she was a nurse at Bak Middle School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Lindsey, 49, died Oct. 27 in Florida.

Her death drew state-wide attention after she had been reported missing by co-workers earlier that week, her body discovered days later in a southern Florida sugar cane field. The prime suspect, Dr. Adam Lambert – her former husband – died of an apparent drug overdose later that week.

In her honor, the school clinic was renamed “The Kimberly Lindsey Clinic.”

Lindsey was preceded in death by her mother, Betty Jane “Missy” Stovall and her father, Billy Gene Lindsey; and a sister, Carrie Chandler.

Surviving her are her three daughters, Sarah, Sofia, and Savannah Lambert, all of Florida; her grandmother, Lorene Cole; her step-father, Connie Stovall; her sisters, Kelly Gene Smith and Connie Jayne “CJ” Carpenter; her brothers, Brian Stovall and Shane Stovall; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.

A 10 a.m. visitation will precede Saturday's memorial service.

A fund has been established in support of Lindsey's daughters at www.daughtersofkimtrust.com. Donations also may be made at any Austin Bank branch locations in the name of Sarah Lambert, with the notation “Benefit for Kim Lindsey.”
