We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Eberle Fisher Funeral Home & Crematory
KIM ELAINE (SIDNER) STROMBERG
Kim was married to William Stromberg and they were blessed with daughters RebaJane and Kjersten.
Kim passed on to the refuge and salvation of the Lord, after a life well-lived, on June 21, 2022, in the arms of her family, at Doctors Hospital in Columbus after a brief illness.
She was the daughter of Eugene O. Sidner, Sr. and Mary Jane (Fisher) Sidner.
Kim was born at Mt. Carmel Hospital, Columbus, Ohio on April 10, 1960. She grew up in London and Springfield. Kim was a lifetime member of the Methodist Church. She graduated from Kenton Ridge High School in Moorfield township.
After graduation, she enlisted in the United States Air Force. Successfully completing basic and advanced training she headed to her assigned technical training school. She completed all phases of technical training and hands-on skills, leading to certification and graduation. She was deployed to an over-seas conflict zone where she sustained a service-connected disability. During this deployment she formalized her own personal doctrine of values and principals that directed her purposeful actions throughout the rest of her life.
Returning to the United States she began a career as a civilian employee of the USAF. She worked on unannounced programs.
After the birth of her second child she dedicated all of her time and energy to the welfare and development of her family. New enthusiasms were 4H animal husbandry resulting in prize winning animals exhibited by her children, teaching vacation bible school, biking, gardening, particularly sunflowers, okra, and tomatoes, and canoeing.
She pursued her desire for community service by working with and caring for the severely mentally disabled, working for a number of organizations and companies specializing in that field. Her goal was always establishing the dignity of life that all humans require and deserve.
Lastly she pursued a whim and received her private investigators license. She looked forward to each day because of the uncertainty of the outcome, like a sporting contest.
Thank you sweetheart, for touching our lives, it has been a pleasure.
She is survived by her loving husband of 30 years William and daughters RebaJane and Kjersten. A special thank you to her niece Melanie Smith and daughter Emily Graves who contributed so much to Kim's happiness over her lifetime. She was preceded in departure from this life by her sisters Nancy and Loretta Jean and brother Robin. She is survived by Loretta Jean's and Robin's families, brothers Eugene Jr. and Rex and their families.
The family would like to highlight Doctors Hospital in Columbus for the special care they gave to Kim. Thank you so much.
