Kimberly Anne Mitchell Wilcox
Our sweet wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend left us unexpectedly on Sunday December 19th. Although our hearts are broken, we will be forever blessed and better people because she was part of our lives.
Kimmy was born on June 1, 1982 in Salt Lake City Utah. The second child of Kim Mitchell and Karleen Varoz Mitchell. She grew up in West Jordan and graduated from West Jordan High School in 2001. From a young age, Kimmy enjoyed the outdoors. She liked spending time at her family cabin, riding four wheelers, and more recently, she and Jeff enjoyed spending time with their kids adventuring in their side by side. Kimmy was a great example of selfless service and sharing with others. Whenever someone was in need, she was the first to respond without hesitation. Co-workers, neighbors, family and friends could count on good meals, words of encouragement, a listening ear or a helping hand. Many people were the recipients of her generosity and if you were lucky, an amazing recipe. She was a great cook and she enjoyed preparing meals for family get togethers. Her family always looked forward to her “Taco Tuesdays”.
20 years ago, Kimmy met her best friend and husband Jeff while they were both working for the Jerry Seiner dealership in Salt Lake. They were married on October 1st 2004 and they made their home in West Valley. Together they were blessed with 2 incredible kids, Makenzee Denise and Brody Roland. Kimmy was an amazing mom. Her kids, were the center of her universe. She was their biggest cheerleader. Whether attending Kenzee’s poetry readings at Kearns High School or Brody’s freshman football games, it was certain you could find her cheering the loudest.
For the last 15 years, Kimmy was employed by the Department of Environmental Quality for the State of Utah and recently she earned her Real Estate License and worked part time with her husband selling homes. She had a great work ethic and she was admired by co-workers, many of whom became close friends.
Kimmy will always be remembered for her creativity, her selfless acts of kindness, her yummy food, her love of The Golden Girls, and everything Wonder Woman. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten. We are so grateful to have known such an amazing woman. She will live on in the hearts of all who knew her. She will also be deeply missed by her fur baby, Sully. Jeff and his family wish to express their gratitude to all who have reached out, visited, and shared loving memories.
