KIMBERLY ANN LOUIS On October 11, 2012 Kimberly Ann Louis was released from pain and entered into peace after a long and valiant fight with cancer. Kimberly was preceded in death by her father, Eldon Lockett. She is survived by her mother, Mary Bair; husband, Richard (Butch) Louis; their children and spouses, Jesse Louis and Yasna Navarro Cortes, Chereen Louis and Cory Watson, Annie and Jeremy Marshall; and 2 beautiful grandchildren, Akilah and Eldon Louis. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Sheryl and Ron Raddas; their children, Kelsie and Alex; as well as many other nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. Kimberly had a zeal for life. You could hear her laugh from the other room. She had a contagious smile and loved to cook and entertain, you always left the party light hearted and well fed! Kimberly also loved the outdoors and spent many summer days camping and fishing her favorite spots in Caribou. Kimberly enjoyed a 25 year career in public service with CalTrans and State parks. Her leadership and tenacity gained the respect and appreciation of all her peers. Kimberly was a daughter, wife, mother and friend who we all love so dearly; she will be desperately missed by all! Please join her family for a Celebration of her Life on Sunday, Oct 21, 2012 from 12-4 p.m. at The Lott Home Sank Park which will include a potluck style reception."
