Just heard about this tragic loss from my Sydney! We met when you attended Church of the Ascension in Magnolia. I am so very sorry. She was a fabulous person. My heart goes our to all of you!
Thank you Kimberly. You made in a difference in all of our lives.
I just read the tribute to Kimberly in the UW Dental News. I am so sorry to learn that she passed away in January. I will always remember her as fun, vibrant, smart, efficient and a real go-getter. She will be sorely missed by all that knew her
I am so sorry to hear of Kimberly's passing. I saw her off and on over the years after graduating from the UW Dental School and my hospital dentistry residency and she always immediately remembered my name (I am sure that she has interacted with so many thousands of people over the years!). She was always so bright, vibrant, friendly, intelligent, and FUNNY! So positive. I am so very sorry for your loss. Jackie Bunce
I just learned of Kimberly's death. She touched many people in her life. I knew her through Dental Research and met her often at international meetings. She will be terribly missed.
Please accept my condolences and deeppest sympathy. I Wish you peace and strength.
I met Kimberly through our dogs who found each other while we were walking along the path at Golden Gardens. Kimberly and I soon became co-workers at Pediatric Dentistry and friends after I moved to a different job. I loved her energy, our chats about work and life, her gift of basketball & teaching my 10 year old twins the tricks of the game and sharing 'junk food fridays' at CPD. Missing you friend! Tara
Kimberly 's graciousness and giving spirit will be missed. What a hole she leaves! Best wishes to those that have to find a way to fill that gap.

There was never a dull day with Kimberly – everyday she found something to be upbeat about and focus on. She had a deep positive and “happy” impact on me. I hope can I pass on some of her enthusiasm for life to others as she did for me.
My sister in spirit. Always with an open set of arms in welcome! The memories you leave with me; nurturing my soul.
Dave and I enjoyed working with Kimberly through her work at the University. Our thoughts are with you and your family
Kimberly was such a beautiful person inside and out. My prayers go out to the family.
The beautiful Kimberly was a delight to know and grow up with. I only wish I had seen her more in her adulthood. My condolences to the girls, her mother and Ky.
Ky...Although we have not seen Kimberly since we left Seattle, we always remember her as a tall, elegant and a beautiful person. So very sorry to hear about your loss. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your girls. Peter & Patty Wood
Shock is the word that first comes to mind. I always admired Kimberly's poise, attitude toward life and her beauty. She embraced all extended family as her own and made each of us feel special. I will never forget the words of wisdom she shared with me during difficult times with my own mom. I have always held them as a torch. My love and grief go out to Ky, Gillian and Sydney.
Blessings. Sandy (Tom) Jones
I will remember Kim as a classmate at The Bush School who brightened everyone's day with her smile, humor, genuineness, and faith So glad I had the opportunity to visit with Kim and her husband at our 40th high school reunion this past summer. I know you are safely home with our heavenly
Father. Lynn G
I am just heartbroken. I have known Kimberly since our daughters met in kindergarten over 18 years ago. They became fast friends and throughout their growing up and into adulthood, Kimberly was like a 2nd Mom to my daughter Rachel. Kimberly and I share a common bond of being a Mom and it was the center of our conversations whenever we ran into each other at sports events or just in the neighborhood. I will miss her warm smile and positive attitude. The world will be a sadder place without her in it; however, her memory and legacy will live forever. My prayers and thoughts go out to Ky, Gillian and Sydney.
I had the opportunity to work with Kimberly at the UW the past several years. She will be missed greatly. Rest in Peace Kimberly
Kimberly's poise, energy, vibrancy, and presence lit up any room she entered. She was so proud of Ky, Gillian, and Sydney! I will always remember her kindness and thoughtfulness. A light has gone out in the world, but she will live on in our memories and through the impact of her professional work and her acts of kindness towards others. The world is a better place for her having been in it.
To Kimberly's family, we are saddened by the loss of such a wonderful human being. She was the best ever! Our heart felt condolences and prayers go out to you.
Though my vagabond lifestyle meant that I hadn't shared the company of Kimberly for many years, it never dulled my fond memories of her huge smile and keen wit. My deepest condolences.
It was a privilege to meet Kimberly thru my sister Terri Morgan. Her smile, laughter, beauty and bounding energy are what I will remember about her. She was a fun girl! I am so so sad and thinking of you all.
You will continue to be such a role model for me. I admired you from the time I met you at the DECOD department at the UW. We held similar philosophies, and I attended many of the CE courses you gave, and will miss seeing you this year at the Ernie Jones memorial, and will never forget you. My prayers and thoughts will be with your family and all of us who will greatly miss you. Thank you for all you gave us. I will continue to work with special needs and under-served populations in your name.

Kimberly brought energy, intelligence and beauty to everything, whether a restaurant or a home or the sidelines of a rugby match. Our thoughts are with her family and friends. Anna & Ian
Not only will Kimberly missed as a good dental hygiene friend to share a laugh with as we all pursued our dental science careers but as a hard worker in the dental research field with her work at UW. Along the way, she mentored many students entering the field so her legacy will continue. My thoughts go out to her family and friends. Margaret J. Fehrenbach, RDH, MS
I knew her when she was just a child, beautiful, intelligent, with a composure and maturity that was rare in one so young. Her obit filled me in on what she did with her gifts. She was a generous spirit. And she made her life count on behalf of others From beyond the years and distance, Teddy, I hug you. You and your family meant so much to the Labodas. Thank you, with love..... Michele
We are heartbroken. It was such a joy to have been neighbors and friends on Queen Anne. Warm hugs to Ky, Gillian and Sydney from Steve, Lynn, Jaeger, Taylor and Jordan Dill
The world is a sadder place without the beautiful smiling Kim. We go back to the rugby days, before and after the kids came, and during the "new" house remodels. Our thoughts and warm hugs are with Ky and the girls.
I have known Kimberly for over 20 years and have always admired her poise, her sense of humor, her level of commitment to everything that she was involved in, and in the knowledgeable yet humble way in which she mentored others. I am so grateful that I was able to meet with Kimberly this past March when our annual research conference was held in Seattle. In addition to “talking shop” I always looked forward to hearing Kimberly's loving and enthusiastic updates about Gillian & Sydney. My deepest condolences go out to her family; my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Kimberly could always make you laugh. I will miss
her greatly but she is on to a better place!
I worked with Kimberly at the U of W and so admired her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
Kimberly was truly a blessing to those whose lives she touched. It was my privilege to have known and worked with her at the Uw for many years. Her smile would light up any room she walked into and her laughter brought joy to all of our lives.
I will continue to hold her family in my heart & prayers...
Kimberly was always so upbeat and loved to talk and laugh. I so enjoyed working with her. Gillian & Sydney were the light of her life. She was so proud of her girls. She will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy to her family.
I will remember all the wonderful times with Kimberly,traveling the state and region as public dental health hygienists. She was one of a kind and will be missed by all. Bonnie McDonald
Kimberly's life radiated with love, graciousness, enthusiasm and warmth. She was truly an angel among us and is undoubtedly spreading her wings up above. We'll miss you, Kimberly - until we meet again!
