Kimberlie’s greatest blessing was being a wife, mother, and grandma. She referred to herself as the ‘Family Manager.’ It is impossible to embody all of whom Kimberlie was. Her sphere of influence was far and wide and if you knew her, you wanted to be around her. The joy in her heart flowed over and her laugh was infectious. She loved people fiercely, and was loyal, and kind. She saw the world through a unique lens and her art reflected that. She was a creative soul – she was a true artist. Kimberlie had the ability to sincerely forgive others and love well. The hearts of all she has touched will never be the same and she will be missed by so many.
