Kim Michele “Kimmie” Cramer, 55, entered into rest on Sunday, March 27, 2011 in San Francisco. She was born on Sunday, Oct. 16, 1955 in Oakland.
Kim leaves behind her adoring family; parents: Jake and Fern Leca, her loving husband and best friend Robert Cramer, her cherished children: Chris, Brian, Frank, Lauren and Jasmine. Kim was blessed with 2 grandchildren: Chris lovingly known to his grandma as “little C” and Brandon. She has 7 surviving siblings: Carolyn, Milo, Patrick, Charles, Sean, Andrew, John Jacob and Joey.
Kim was a resident of Manteca for over 12 years. She worked as a registered nurse before she settled down to accomplish her true passion which was being a stay-at-home mom. The highlight of Kim’s life was her family to the fullest, as she would involve herself in every aspect of her children’s lives. Kim had a true nurturing soul, a mother hen to all of her kid’s friends and extended family, who did not know her as Mrs. Cramer or Kim but as “Mom”. No stranger ever crossed her path; anyone who gave her 5 seconds of their time would instantly befriend her for life and she was sure to let you know that she cared. With Kim any event was reason for celebration making sure everything was over the top and giving a true meaning to the saying “Go Big or Go Home.” every detail would always be taken care of.
Kimmie was a devout collector of Disney as the silhouette of Mickey would be in every inch of home and clothing. The love that Kim shared with her husband was like no other, a true testimony of love and friendship. Kimmie lived her life to the fullest and the glow that surrounded her was felt by everyone who knew her. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and faithful friend. She will stay in our hearts forever and remain with us each time “We wish upon a star”.
