Kim was born on May 1, 1964 in Marblehead, MA and grew up in Waukegan and Libertyville, IL. She was a 1982 graduate of Libertyville High School and attended College of Lake County and Chippewa Valley Technical College. Kim moved to Eau Claire, WI in 1992, where she put down roots and lived until her passing. Kim was talented and creative and found great joy in spending time with her family, cooking, traveling, and scrapbooking.
