Kimila was an amazing woman! Her home making skills were surpassed by few. She homeschooled all of her children. Kimila put her trust and faith in Jesus Christ early in her life. She lived that faith everyday. She is famous for her Christmas cookies which she baked for all of Patrick's students at Sunnyside, Tecumseh, and Jefferson every year of his 40 year career! Kimila organized and prepared countless meals for wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, small group Bible studies, Christmas parties, and much more. Kimila was an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother! We will all miss her everyday, but realize the everlasting life purchased through the shed blood of Jesus Christ will be absolutely amazing for eternity!
