Kimberly graduated from Fenton High School, class of 1976. Following graduation, she spent time in California where she met her beloved husband, Joe Garcia, with whom she started a family. They celebrated 42 wonderful years of marriage and were a great team together before Kimberly was called home to the Lord. Kimberly was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law, and friend.
In addition to her parents, Kimberly was predeceased by her sisters, Tamara Jo Dunn and Sherrie Lynne Eggenberger.

Kimberly enjoyed the smells of lilacs and the sight of seeing red birds. She enjoyed crocheting and reminiscing about times she spent with her sisters and her parents. She enjoyed taking care of her husband and spending quality time with him. She loved to make silly nicknames for all her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. You could always count on Kimberly to bring a smile to your face. She was an EEG technician for many, many years and enjoyed serving in the healthcare field and helping many people. Kimberly always made sure her family was cared for by helping anyway she could, she always made phone calls to her daughters to check on them to see if she could do anything to help or if there was anything they needed to talk about, she was a great listener. She will be remembered by her love for those whom the Lord placed in her path, and the stories each person was blessed to hear. She enjoyed singing songs throughout her days. She did not forget if it was your birthday she enjoyed singing happy birthday with an expressive phone call early in the morning to family members on their special day. She loved animals and sitting outside enjoying the sunshine. She will be remembered for her contributions as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, an aunt and a sister-in-law, a friend, and a child of God. She will be forever remembered for her empathy and care for those around her, and for being a faithful servant of the Lord.
Kimberly fought a long and hard journey here on this earth, she did not waste any time giving all the love she had to those around her. Kimberly knew she was never alone and that her Heavenly Father was with her every step of the way. All her family will forever find peace and joy knowing she is not in pain, and she now rests in the Lord’s presence. Every time we hear the song of a redbird and see its beauty and smell the sweet fragrance of a lilac, Kimberly will be remembered as a beautiful song and a sweet-smelling fragrance.
A Memorial for Kimberly will be announced at a later time.
