Kim Renee Webb
April 16, 1959-August 22, 2013
Resident of Lafayette, CA
Kim has passed and our hearts are broken. She valiantly battled breast cancer over the past year and inspired all around her with her endless good nature, trademark sense of humor, and the wonderful quality of always thinking about others first, even during her most difficult moments. Kim passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her family. Born in 1959 on Johnson Air Force Base in Japan Kim spent the early years of her life as an 'air force brat', moving to different bases and ending up at Hamilton Air Force Base in Novato, where her father was base commander. Kim graduated from San Jose State University in 1981 with a degree in advertising, and was married to John Webb in 1987. Together they raised 3 sons in Lafayette in a home that was always filled with love, laughter and happiness. Kim's greatest passion was her family and friends, and she was also an accomplished chef who loved gourmet cooking. She was also very passionate about painting, raising chickens and travel. Together with her family she explored many parts of the world and had many wonderful adventures. Kim is survived by her husband of 25 years John, sons James, Jason and Brandon, her mother Geri Wintermute, brother Jim Wintermute and his wife Meagan and sons Royce, Quinn and Keaton, brother Randy Wintermute and his wife Debbie and sons Tyler and Ryan, nephews Clint, Danny and Michael Anderson.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Cancer Support Community in Walnut Creek, CA.
