“I was so saddened to hear of Kims passing. While it has been 2 or 3 years since I last saw Kim I will never forget her zest for life and wonderful laugh.”

“I met Kim about three years ago when moved to Issaquah, WA and joined Siemens.
I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her; we became friends and shared many moments of talks, laughs and cries.
I am still overwhelmed by her support to me when I lost my father few months ago in the midst of her battle with her illness.
Kim is always in my thoughts and will be eternally in my heart.
I miss you Kim so much.

“It is still difficult to imagine Kim's passing even after a month. We shared good times, great times, and hard times, and I remember everytime with happiness because I got to share it with her. As hard as it is for me to think there won't be anymore shared days with Kim, I know it is very difficult for all of the family to cope with such a loss. Virgie, Jim, and family, please know that my thoughts are with you at this very sad time. All of my love to my dear friend and to you, her family. ”

“I knew Kim during her time at Siemens Healthcare for about 12 years. Although we never worked in the same department, we had mutual friendships. It is my loss that I only became a close friend at the time of her diagnosis nearly two years ago. I will always treasure her kind gestures and the sparkle in her eyes. Even during her illness it was hard to believe since the smile and sparkle was still in her eyes. I will truly miss my friend... she was a true blessing in my life.”

“I met Kim 13 years ago and the first thing I noticed was her upbeat & bright personality and her wonderful smile. She was extremely dedicated to her work with an integrity and passion, which is unprecedented. There are many days where I am about to walk to her desk in the office to ask here a question, until I realize she is no longer there. I miss her very much as a friend and colleague. She was instrumental for our product development and she is truly irreplaceable I hope she has found peace in heaven and friends to chat and laugh with. I will be meeting her again and look forward to catching up with Kim”

“I was married to Kim for 20 years. She was the love of my life and we had a great time together. I am sure all the travel we both were experiencing with our jobs made building a stronger relationship so much harder. I will never forget all the fun and good times we had in Mexico where we could both relax from work. Her battle with cancer was phenomenal and she wanted so much to be there for Alyssa, her niece, and those she loved so much. She will forever be in my heart and I know she is in a much better place.

“Thinking of all the Wolcotts and friends as we grieve the loss of Kim. She was my best friend. We shared many laughs, memories and comforted each other especially during her journey over the past few years. She amazed me as she was always more concerned for others over herself. I continue to carry the life lessons I learned with and from Kim. I will never forget her as she is always in my heart. I miss you Miss Kim. ”
