Kimberly Ann Hoston was born on October 5, 1969. She came into this world two months early, eager to begin this thing called “Life”, and that she did with gusto. Everything she did, it was done in a hurry.
Being premature she had some challenges, but she faced them head-on. Her sister was her biggest cheerleader and confidant. When Kimberly wanted to work at Walmart, we all applied and were hired. Kimberly was the only one who stayed. She was a dedicated employee for 28 years and earned the title, “fastest cashier at Walmart”.
Kimberly loved her family and we were blessed to travel as a family to so many places. We also did “Girl’s Trips” and on one trip we ended up getting “tattoos”.
Kim was loving, kind, funny, generous, and said what she meant. She was a ray of sunshine to everyone she met. She lived with her father and bossed him around and kept him on his toes. Kim was “unapologetic” a daddy’s girl.
She leaves to mourn her passing; her parents, Eugene Hoston and Penny Smith; sister, Karla Hoston; nephew, Brian Price; aunt, Marian Locker; uncle, Kenneth Smith; cousin, Eugene Locker; and a host of cousins and friends.
Her last words were, “I am tired”. God heard her cry and said, “Kimberly, come to me, you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest”.
And She Did.
