Kenai and Soldotna area resident Kimberley Suzanne Draheim-Stalvig died Saturday, Nov. 21, 2009, at home. She was 45.
A private family viewing was held at Peninsula Memorial Chapel. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Ms. Draheim-Stalvig was born Jan. 8, 1964, in Salem, Ore. She lived in Alabany, Ore., before moving to Alaska in 1996. She received her associate's degree in business from Kenai Peninsula College. She had worked at Fairview Hospital in Salem. After moving to Alaska, she worked at Frontier Community Services, in management at The LeeShore Center and for Sal's Klondike Diner. She enjoyed riding her trike motorcycle with the ABATE group, being with her sons, camping, fishing and making crafts.
"Kim was taken from us suddenly at 3:30 a.m. with her son Jeffrey being at home. Kim was always helping others providing a ride or a place to live until they could find housing. She always told her sons, 'I love you,'" her family said. "Kim had met several of her personal goals, buying her home and purchasing her motorcycle. She was a loving mother to her sons and daughter to her parents. She was always helping others at a moment's notice and holidays were very special for Kim and her family. The family requests that those who knew Kim to reflect upon how she touched his or her life."
Ms. Draheim-Stalvig is survived by her sons, Jeffrey Root and Tim Stalvig, both of Soldotna, Phillip Stalvig of Pendleton, Ore.; and her parents, Phillip and Rita Draheim.
Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
