Kimberley Jo Sullivan
July 4, 1954 - March 15, 2014
Kimberley Jo Sullivan, Kim, a longtime Hood River, Ore., resident went home to Jesus March 15, 2014, in her home on Avalon Drive, at the age of 59. She was allowed to pass at home thanks to her granddaughter Jessamyn Duckwall and future son-in-law Taylor Brinsfield. She was surrounded by loved ones all the time including the last days of her life and her son Michael, daughter Deevonna and granddaughters Hannah, Jessamyn and Bailey.
Graveside services will be held Saturday, April 12, at 11 a.m. at Pine Grove Butte cemetery.
Kim was born July 4, 1954, in Roseburg, Ore., to Calvin and Betty Jo Williams (Dunn). She was raised and educated all over Oregon. Her favorite grades were first and second in Bell Fountain, Ore. She moved to Hood River in 1967 and it has been home every since.
Her best memories are raising her children on Lippman Road from 1979 to 1992. She picked every kind of fruit you can imagine, picked cotton, felled timber and planted trees all across the United States before working at Stadelman Fruit for several years.
She enjoyed spending time with her family and loved to garden, pick mushrooms and be with her dogs and cats.
She is survived by her father, Calvin Williams; sister Michelle Harrington and Linda Simmons; brother Logan Williams; daughters Deevonna Frasier and Debi Sullivan; son Michael Sullivan; granddaughters Devyn Sullivan, Jessamyn Duckwall, Hannah Duckwall and Bailey Frasier; grandsons David Frasier, Robert Frasier, Chet Frasier, Christopher Sullivan and soon-to-be-born Caleb Sullivan; and her first great-grandchild, due to be born this summer.
She wore a necklace that read “What cancer cannot do — it cannot: invade the soul, suppress memories, kill friendship, destroy peace, conquer the spirit, shatter hope, cripple love, corrode faith, steal eternal life or silence courage — and she lived this for the last four years. Love you whole bunch anyway.
