Kim Kathryn (Bessette) Kling

August 26, 1959 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 62)


Kim K. Kling, age 62, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, July 16, 2022. She was born on August 26, 1959 to the late Louis and Louise (Larson) Bessette. Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer on March 24, 2017 and fought for the past five and a half years.

She graduated from Seymour High School in 1978. Kim went on to work at Zwickers and later began her career at Neenah Paper until her retirement.

Kim was united in marriage to David Kling on November 6, 1982 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Black Creek.

One of her favorite things to do was to go camping and she was able to do that for the last time this past Memorial Day Weekend, which shows how strong and resilient of a person she was battling cancer. Kim also enjoyed her time doing various arts and crafting projects. She was always there to lend a hand when someone needing help.

She is survived by husband, David Kling; brother, Jay (Vicky) Biersteker; sister, Robin Hillegas; aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Further survived by Dave's family and many friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

Visitation will take place on Friday, July 22, 2022 at Muehl-Boettcher Funeral Home from 3:00 pm until the funeral service at 6:00 pm with Pastor Moira Finley officiating. Interment will take place at St. Lawrence Cemetery, Navarino.
