Jimmie Sue Finger Gambrel dies

A reader writes in the Comment section of this blog that Jimmie Sue Finger Gambrel has died in prison.   A spokeswoman with the Georgia Department of Corrections confirms  her death Friday from ” natural causes.”  In 1989,    A Cobb County, Georgia  jury convicted Gambrel of persuading her teenage lover to kill her husband.  ABC television made her story into a movie entitled “Stay The Night”.   There’s an earlier posting on my blog that includes an interview with Gambrel while in prison.  She was 61.  Had she lived, Gambrel would next have been eligible for parole consideration in 2013.  Her teenage lover, Michael Kettman, who actually committed the murder got out on parole more than 15 years ago.

    Jimmie sue was a good friend to me during my time of incarceration. It is my belief that jimmie sue changed her life and got right with God. Jimmie sue loved her family as much as any one person could. What jimmie looked forward to was visitation with her grandchildren and children.May Jimmie sue rest in peace and know that she was a big inspiration to a lot of people.I love you jimmie sue and you will be missed.

    I know one of Jimmie Sue Gambrel’s daughters. Her daughter says Jimmie Sue was undergoing open heart surgery and her heart gave out. She has had heart problems for some time.

    Rest in peace Jimmie Sue. Gloria your anger is not hurting Jimmie Sue, it is only hurting you. Jimme sue has a lot of friends. she was honest about her life and her story. she showed remorse all of the times. there are two sides to every story and she accepted responsibility for her mistakes. she was harder on herself more than you could ever be. but it is alright now. heal yourself and let the Lord deal with jimmie sue. if not you will suffer as jimmie sue did not suffer. she iwas in pain but she did not suffer because people really loved her. love is what made her life and death easy. she was a pretty woman.
