Kimmie was a loyal and loving wife, a devoted step mother and dedicated grandmother. Being a sister was one of her most proud titles. She shared a very special bond with Missy, not only as a sister, but as a best friend. She loved to take long car rides with her husband, Bill, and travel to historical sites. She loved the fall and the Christmas seasons because it was a time that everyone could be together. She was most looking forward to the birth of her first Grandson in September.
Kimberly’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Fresenius Kidney Care of Morgantown, WV. They would also like to thank the doctors and staff at WVU Hospitals, who worked tirelessly in taking care of her every need.
