Kimberly Laine Maggs

June 06, 1958 ‒ July 16, 2019

Marion, Ohio

Loving wife, mother, sister, and friend, Kimberly Laine Maggs passed away peacefully at home Tuesday, July 16, 2019.  Kim was 61 years old and lived the majority of her life in Marion.

Kim was born in Marion on June 6, 1958 to the late Edwin Lee and Patricia (Redmon) Ward.  She attended Harding High School graduating in 1976 and furthered her education at The Ohio State University.

Kim met the love of her life, Randall Dean Maggs, during a party at her brother’s house.  The two were wed March 26, 1988.  Together, Kim and Randall spent 31 years together, raising two wonderful children, vacationing at the beach every chance they had, and visiting family across the country.

Kim was truly a wonderful woman always putting the needs of others first, especially those of her family.  Her willingness to always listen in a non-judgmental manor coupled with her support and wisdom made her feel like a mother to everyone.

Having a quiet side, Kim enjoyed her early morning coffee on the back porch with her trusted canine companion Belle overlooking her vegetable and flower gardens.

As a woman of faith, Kim grew up in Fairpark Community Baptist Church, enjoyed services at Dayspring Wesleyan and most recently attended Emanuel Reformed Church in Green Camp.

Kim worked for Honda Manufacture, starting in the assembly department and for over twenty years worked in the paint department.  She retired after twenty-nine years of service in 2016.  After her retirement, she enjoyed helping family and friends by babysitting (as long as it didn’t interfere with her ‘retirement nap’).

Kim will be missed by her husband, Randall; children, Bobby Lee Maggs and Allison Paige Maggs; siblings, Charles William (Julie) Ward of Marion and Carrie Lee (Michael) Dutton of Prospect numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Visitation will be held at Snyder Funeral Homes, Gunder/Hall Chapel (347 West Center St.), Sunday, July 21, 2019 from 2 pm until 5pm.  A funeral celebrating Kim’s life will be held 10:30 am the funeral home on Monday.  Burial will follow at Prospect Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made in Kim’s honor to The American Heart Association.

Bobby and Casey are best friends and like brothers. Our daughters Madison and Allison were on the same softball teams growing up and graduated together from Harding. Kim ended up going to my dad’s small church in Green Camp and became loved there as well. She will was loved by many and will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bobby, Allison and Randy and the rest of the family. I know how tight all of you were and I am sure this leaves a huge gap in your hearts.

  • To All of Kim’s family and loved ones: I don’t know how to even begin to express the amount of love, compassion, protection, friendship, and guidance she gave to me and my family. She was a true Angel. In the past few years we have been in each other’s lives, we have both experienced the highs and lows in life together. She supported me in moments in my life when I needed guidance, a mother figure to talk to, or the willingness to be with my children so that I could go to work, meet friends, or when I was sick. The way she wrapped my children in her love was the most beautiful thing to behold. She was a grandmother to them. My heart is aching with the news because I will miss her terribly and so will the children. I have so much love and appreciation for her! Thank you, Kim, for loving my children as if they were your own grandchildren. Thank you for being there for me and my husband. I take solace in knowing you are with God, your loved ones who have passed, and also my Mother. Prayers to you all! We love you, Kim!

May you feel God’s loving arms around you through this difficult time.

  • I’m so Sorry to hear of Kim’s passing. It was a Great Pleasure to work and to get to know her over the years. I first hear of her years before I ever meet Her. I work with her Dad (Ed) and she had work at same place before I did. Kim had left when I hired in. The People there often talk about what a caring person she was. Kim cared so much for every thing that even a Tree in her Back yard that had been there ever scent she moved in her Home had to be cut down because it was hit by Lighting. Kim told me that I couldn’t cut it down until she went on vacation. Kim said that it meet so much to her that she could bare to watch it be cut down. Kim will be deeply miss by all that new her.

  • I am deeply saddened to hear of Kim’s passing. She was always so sweet and kind to everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Sending prayers for comfort during this difficult time.

  • Joan and I were so sorry to hear of the passing of Kim.So sorry we are in Virginia and will miss her services.Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at these challenging times.

  • My cousin Kim Maggs was one of the finest people I’ve known. She exemplified the fruits of the Holy Spirit listed by the apostle Paul in Galatians: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. She wasn’t perfect, as none of us are but thankfully God doesn’t demand perfection, only belief in Jesus. It’s obvious she was one of God’s chosen and I believe she’s now basking in the glory of our Lord for eternity.

  • Kim was a warm loving friend I will miss her sweet smile and warm hugs. I pray for all her family and friends that God will bless and comfort them. Kim will be missed at Emanuel Reformed Church where she served God with her love.

  • I am so sorry to hear of Kim’s passing. She loved her family and shared many experiences. I will be praying for comfort for you.

  • I’m so sorry for your great loss. Kim was a very special lady whom I considered a special friend. Her faith and her love for her family were evident in all she did.
    We are keeping your family in our prayers.
