Kimberly Sue Krieg, 67, of Basco, Ill., went to her eternal home with Jesus on Oct. 11, 2021.
Kim was born Feb. 3, 1954, to Clifton and Laura Ann Carle. She graduated from Carthage High School in 1972 and attended Western Illinois University.
She was united in Christian marriage with Galen Krieg on Aug. 26, 1973. He survives. Together, they raised four children and taught them to know the Lord Jesus Christ.
Kim had recently retired from managing the Hamilton-Warsaw Clinic. Prior to her tenure there, she was an EMT and a secretary at Memorial Hospital. Kim loved her work at the clinic and was honored for her success there. While she was a manager, she received many awards for her work including "Who's Your Angel?" and a "Fire Starter" award. Kim taught Sunday school and vacation bible school for many years, sang in the church choir, and served as an assistant minister. When she wasn't working, Kim could be found at any of her children's or grandchildren´s sporting or school events. Nothing made her prouder or happier than to be supporting one of her family treasures. Kim´s greatest joy was her family and being with them made her the happiest. All that knew Kim loved her kindness, her quick wit, her generosity, and love for others. Kim's loving spirit was much more than what can be written in words.
Kim is survived by her husband Galen Krieg of Basco; daughter April (Jason) Lemley of Oswego, Ill; daughter Erin (Ryan) Biery of Carthage, Ill.; son Cole (Ashley) Krieg of Carthage; daughter-in-law Katy Krieg of Basco; grandchildren Zachary (Jasmine) Lemley, Abigail and Megan Lemley, Katherine, Anna, and Lucas Biery, Elly, Avalyn, and Raef Krieg, and Nora and Wade Krieg; a great-granddaughter Blake Julianna Lemley; a sister Pam (Joe) Dion; a brother Scott (Terri) Carle; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and close friends.
Kim was preceded in death by her parents, Clifton and Laura Carle; her sister Jan Carle; and her son Casey Krieg.
