BELLVILLE: Kim Golder, a passionate daughter, mother, sister, and aunt, lived her life to the fullest and always made room for fun. When cooking, she doubled recipes, and was constantly working on some type of new collection. Regardless of her circumstances, Kim made the most of every situation, and always had a smile on her face. More importantly she loved her family, placing their needs ahead of her own.

On Sunday, September 29, 2013 Kimberly A. Golder passed away following a valiant three year battle with cancer. She was 52.

Always interested in starting a new collection, Kim collected beanie babies, sea shells and movie memorabilia. Easy going she also enjoyed going to rock concerts. Kim read Stephen King novels and watching the SciFi and Food Network Channels. She also enjoyed oceanfront vacations to the Carolina’s.
