Kim was a graduate of Meek High School and worked a brief time as a CNA before taking on the role as a full time wife and mother. She has always shown concern for the well-being of others and especially enjoyed her time spent with Aunt Judy. She had an uncanny ability to remember dates, never seemed to forget a birthday and will be remembered for always reminding us we are getting older…bless her. Kim will be deeply missed. She loved collecting cookbooks and recipes as well as drawing.
