Kimberly D. (Krug) Mann, 46, of Milton, passed from her physical body to the heavens and the next dimension on Monday, Jan. 18, 2016, at the Geisinger Medical Center after a courageous battle with cancer. She is now with her “Mystic Grandmother” and other loved family and friends.
Kim was born Sept. 3, 1969, in Detroit, Mich., a daughter of Gina (Simmons) Acker and her husband Ronald Krug whom are both deceased. She moved to California as an infant and remained close to her “west coast” family her entire life. Kim definitely embraced the “west coast” culture as it related to adventure, trying new cuisines and teaching others to be accepting of people regardless of race or of a variety of life styles. These three things were her greatest gift to her loving husband.
Kim is survived by her husband Mark of 24 years, her “spiritual mother” Aunt Dona Cook of Sandpoint, Ind., and several cousins as well as her “boy” Atherton the chocolate Lab whom she cherished dearly.
Kim would not want you to morn her passing as she believed that spiritually we all live on. She would want people to remember her for her quick wit and tongue, her ability to push forward regardless of the situation and as a girl that would always create a laughable moment. As she started to see the lights her last written words to her husband were “the Plane has left the terminal”. Her belief is that she is not gone, you just can’t physically see her at this moment.
A funeral for Kim will not be held as she would prefer people to spend their time creatively or having fun, not standing in a long and sad greeting line. A celebration of life will be planned for this summer just the way Kim would have wanted it.
Arrangements are by the John H. Shaw III Funeral Home, Lewisburg.
