She was a graduate of Southern Miss with her Bachelor of Science Degree. Kim loved the holidays, watching Mississippi State football with her dad, and of course Mexican Food, but hated bugs and BAMA. To know her was to love her and everyone knew she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, with this came a lot of friendships. Kim spent over 20 years driving school busses for the Harrison County School District, Head start, and Biloxi School District. Her pride and joy were her three loving grandsons, who called her Nana. Despite her diagnosis, Kim never stopped fighting and enjoying life with her family. Although she will be missed beyond measure, Kim left us with a lot of wonderful memories.
