Kim was born in Nampa, Idaho, on May 29, 1965, to Ron and Garnet Ellis. Kim was raised on the family farm with her sister and brother, went to the old Greenhurst and Southside schools just like her Dad. Kim, along with her siblings, worked on the family farm during the summers when she wasn't playing baseball. Growing up, Kim loved sports, excelling at basketball, volleyball and baseball. She made the all star team almost every year in boys' hardball and was the first girl ever to make the boy's freshmen team. She was voted Senior Class President and she attended college in Idaho and Oregon.
Kim will be remembered for her love of sports including softball and her fantasy team Seattle Seahawks, along with the outdoors, camping, fishing, scenic photography, and her pets. She considered her pets her children. Kim was always a hard worker and her jobs throughout the years followed her interest of home improvement and tools. She could build anything; just ask her.
She was a loving and generous person always willing to lend a helping hand. Her laugh was contagious and it was hard not to join in when you heard her laugh, whether it was appropriate or not.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents and her parents Ron and Garnet Ellis. She is survived by her Uncle Roger Ellis, her sister Cindy (Greg) Moss, brother Monty Ellis, nieces Jennifer (Ben) Patchett, Katie Vargas, Linsi Vargas, Heidi Vargas, and great nephews Jake Patchett, Daniel Patchett, and great niece Brooklyn Patchett, and her close friends and beloved pets.
We are all heartbroken but we know she is at peace now with her dearly missed parents. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Humane Society.
