Eight years ago we
were blessed with a miracle that saved her life and gave us more time with
her. We were blessed again with another miracle that took her life
peacefully and with family by her side.
Kimberly was an
amazing, unique soul. She was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority at IU.
Kimberly was a Cardiac Critical Care Nurse, a profession that she loved
dearly. A spirited red-head known for her evil eye as a small child and her
sweet and caring nature as an adult, Kimberly touched the lives of all that
knew her. Despite the challenges that she faced in the last years of her
life, she kept her sense of humor and was always ready with a polite word
and smile for everyone that she encountered. Although we will forever miss
her, we were so blessed to have the time that we did and we will carry our
memories of her in our hearts.
A Celebration of
Life will take place February 24, at The Ambassador in Hobart, IN, from
11:00 a.m. -- 1:00 p.m. All are welcome to join the family in remembrance
