Kim was a devoted mother , daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and relished her most recent role as "Nana" to her granddaughter, Emma. She loved nothing more than being surrounded by her family where she could share memories and her contagious laughter. Her door was always open, as was her heart, and she enjoyed the warmth of having a full house and feeding anyone who entered. She was an avid Alabama Football fan who enjoyed yearly trips with her husband Louis, to games in Tuscalousa.
She enjoyed numerous years of coaching mini football cheerleading and time spent with friends who have become like extended family over the years. She enjoyed donating to kids fishing derbies through out the community and yearly assistance with the Back Mountain Police Department's annual fishing derby for kids and veterans. Her favorite aspect of her business was the relationships built with the customers over many years. She also enjoyed fishing, traveling, and trips to the beach and cottages.
