Mrs. Johnson was born June 10, 1960, to Walter and Patricia Gamache. Her family said Mrs. Johnson was a free spirit who had a knack for turning everyday into a good time. She enjoyed crafts and game shows, especially Wheel of Fortune; she always seemed to know the answers. She also loved everything to do with the outdoors, including rodeos, horseback riding, fishing and canning and smoking her catch. Kim also loved snow machining and working in her garden.
The family wrote, "She will be remembered by her beautiful smile and sense of humor. For those who knew her best, her wonderful outlook on life will carry on in the hearts and minds of her closest friends and family for endless years to come. John 3:16 For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son, and whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have ever lasting life."

She is survived by her three children, Travis, Rocky and Tia Johnson; grandchildren, Daytona and Rayce Powell and Alexander Kain; mother, Patricia Gamache; sisters, JoAnn McWhorter and Robin Grandchamp; significant other, Roy Bell; and numerous other relatives.
