Kimberly Ann "Kim" Stevenson

Kimberly "Kim" Ann Stevenson, beloved daughter of Milton "Tom" Stevenson and Linda Stevenson of Hebron, passed away suddenly on July 24, 2014.

Kim was born Oct. 26, 1974, in Manchester. She graduated from RHAM High School in Hebron, class of 1992, and received an associate's degree from Eastern Connecticut State University. Kim acted in several AHM plays, was a member of the RHAM Chorus and Encore ensemble. She also enjoyed camping, geo-caching, and scrapbooking. She moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1994. There she enjoyed a fulfilling life teaching music to children, singing in several choirs, and being a nanny to several adoring children. Kim had numerous friends who will dearly miss her. Kim had a certain zest for life and always took her own path. She surprised us with her courage and will leave a vacuum in all of our lives. Please honor her spirit. Take time to "surprise" a stranger with a random act of kindness.

In addition to her loving parents, she is survived by her brother, Robert "Bob" Stevenson, and his wife, Stephanie, of Norwalk; her niece, Aubrey; her nephew, Cyrus; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and her loving dog, Bowser.
