Kimberly Holmes

Kimberly was born July 28, 1961 in New York City. She died peacefully on March 30, 2013 in Burien, surrounded by her loving family and friends.

Kimberly was the beloved daughter of King Holmes, Sr. and Linda Haas, and the sister of Heather Jellerson and King Holmes, Jr. She adored her nieces, Sage Jellerson and Reilly Holmes and her dog Apollo. Kimberly was a graduate of Lakeside School and the University of Washington.

She grew up in Issaquah, lived in the Seattle area much of her life, and on Orcas Island for the past ten years.

She was passionate about arts and crafts, particularly card making and scrapbooking, and found great joy in gardening. Kimberly lit up a room when she entered it with her warmth, radiance and beauty. She will always be remembered for her kind heart and generous spirit.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, remembrances are suggested to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance at http://www.seattlecca.org/scca-make-a-donation.cfm# for programs to help patients deal with cancer, a local program to assist women in transition, the YMCA program for homeless women at https://www.ywcaworks.org/donate or a charity of your choice.
