Kymberly’s death didn’t make headlines until Nov. 15, 2022, via the Santa Barbara News-Press with an obituary. The outlet noted that the star “passed away peacefully” in her Santa Barbara residence but also didn’t disclose details around the circumstances of her passing.

However, the obituary did request for folks to donate “to the American Cancer Society to further the research of the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.” So, it’s quite possible that breast cancer was the cause of Kymberly’s death.

Since it has been some time since Kymberly passed away, the family may have decided to keep the cause of her death private.
