Kimberly Riann Nicole Stout, 16, left us on October 25th, 2022. She was born on October 12th, 2006. Kimberly attended and played softball at West Jefferson High School. She was a force, an incredibly strong and confident young woman. She made everyone around her feel supported by her strength and goodness. Her friends and family always knew that eventually she would take over the world.
No one has favorites but if they did it would be Kimberly. At family gatherings you would always find Kimberly surrounded by her younger cousins with as many as she could carried in her arms. She was the child matriarch, she was so generous with her love, and she was completely loved and adored in return.
Only two weeks ago she celebrated her Sweet 16 and her Nana Geri, great aunt Colie and great aunt Barb took to the backyard stage. Kimberly wanted a Mama Mia! Party, so they performed the song ‘Super Trooper’ in full, bedazzled brilliance. This wild wonderful fun and splendor was a perfect reflection of who Kimberly was and how much her family loved her.
Kimberly loved musicals and was a lover of the arts. It was a dream of hers to travel to Paris and to one day become an art teacher. She was also a fierce competitor on the softball diamond. She loved the sport and loved her teammates and she loved Friday night Roughrider football games under the lights. Anything and everything Kimberly did, she put her whole heart into. She was a social butterfly and could be found at a friend’s house as often as her own. She loved staying with the Rogers family so often that it became her second home. And she spent so much time with her Aunt Nikki that not only was Nikki like a second mom but the two were inseparable, they were best friends. Everywhere she went she brightened the space with her light.
Her mom adds that Kimberly was extremely loud in the kitchen, especially late at night. She was the Best big sister to her siblings. She was always dancing and was the most amazing, stubborn, loveable ball of perfection that’s ever walked the earth.
Kimberly was taken away too young, and we are heartbroken. She will be forever missed and forever remembered.
Kimberly is survived by her mother Ashley, her father Nevada, her siblings Carson and Kinsley and her biological father Randy.
Additional Survivors include Grandparents Geri and Mark Cox, Pam Berry, Ronald Zimmerman, and Dennis Stout.
