Kimberly had a bright, inquisitive mind and a generous and gratuitous soul.

She enjoyed many passions including swimming, taking long, long walks, seeing movies,  dancing and butterflies.  Kimberly had an acute eye for fashion and took great, unabashed pride in having a unique, individualized twist on “style” that she refined over the years. Kimberly had a kind and compassionate heart which was evident in how she cherished her friendships and her devotion to her family.  She was a strong willed fighter and a two-time cancer survivor.
