Kim Hingston Obituary

Kim Lucy Blessington Hingston, 67 of Newcastle, passed away at Winship Green Nursing Center in Bath, after many years of varying illnesses.  Born on March 26, 1956, in the town of Beverly, MA, she was the daughter of Roderick and Deborah Blessington of Topsfield, MA.

Kim grew up in Topsfield, and graduated from Masconomet Regional High School. She met her future husband, Samuel Hingston, shortly after.  They were married in 1977 and had two boys, John and Jeffery. 

Along with being a homemaker, Kim worked for her husband’s company, Hingston Hot Tubs, and helped guide this very successful company through the 80’s.  In 1994, she and Sam bought a house in Newcastle, Maine and moved there with their boys. Kim was always a horse lover and once in Maine, was able to own and board many horses at the family farm in Newcastle. 

Kim loved maintaining her beautiful gardens, cooking and had the “gift of gab”.   She will be remembered for her engaging conversations and comfort she provided to so many people near and far.  She was a wonderful mother, daughter and friend to so many.  Kim will also be remembered for her strength; and although she was not large in stature, she was tough and endured a lot in her lifetime. 

Kim was predeceased by her son, John Hingston; and her husband, Samuel Hingston.

She is survived by her son, Jeffery Hingston and daughter-in-law Marina; along with her granddaughter, Claire.  Claire was her true joy and she loved seeing her when she could.  

A celebration of life for both Kim, and her husband Sam, will be held in the summer of 2024.
