Kimberly Ann Mathis, 40, of Jefferson City, passed away peacefully Monday, September 24, 2012, at Columbia University Hospital. She was born October 23, 1971, in Bismarck, N.D. Kimberly lived in many places, and touched the lives of many people. Kimmie never met a person she didn't like, and could talk to anyone. She loved all animals and never grew tired of caring for them. Kim especially enjoyed watching the wildlife from her porch. Kimberly is survived by her mother, Susan Warren; her father, Dwayne Mathis; her fiance, Michael Elovecky; her second family, Cinda ("mom") John; Thomas and James (her "brothers"); and Casey, Chrissy and Gina (her "sisters"). She will be sorely missed and will always be loved. A celebration of her life is currently being planned; friends and family will be informed of the time and place. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made out to the Jefferson City Animal Shelter.
