Kimberly Rousseau 49, of Brainerd, Minnesota, passed away April 6, 2019 surrounded by family.
Kim was born June 3, 1969 in Minneapolis, MN. Her whole life was enveloped in her artistic creativity that touched people close and far away. Sharing her gifts with friends, family and pen-pals worldwide. She was a talented florist for the majority of her life. Kim started working while she was still in high school and her incredible work ethic followed her through the last few months. Even while going through radiation and chemotherapy, Kim continued to work at Jorson and Carlson. The people she worked with there were more like her family than coworkers. They supported her when she lost her husband Randy in 2016 and continued to be so amazing while she was fighting cancer.
Kim leaves behind a legacy that will be remembered every Christmas by so many as they decorate with her hand made Christmas ornaments. Kim was so blessed with so many wonderful friends many of which she had her whole life. She was so generous and caring and the friends she had reflected that wonderful attribute.
When she lost her husband in 2016, Kim really embraced all that life had to offer. She became involved in church, cooking classes, many different craft groups and even belly dancing. She fought for more time until the very end. She was such a strong inspirational woman that will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
She is preceded in death by her husband Randy, and her Father John Pechonick.
Kimberly is survived by Mother Bridget Pechonick, Siblings Charles (Jennifer), Megan (Chad), Dan (Jenny), Stepdaughter Mellissa (Joe), many nieces, nephews and grandsons.
Celebration of Life will be Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 1-5 PM at Evans-Nordby Funeral Home, 34 2nd St. NE, Osseo.
Our son recently passed away and of course you never expect to have to deal with this for your children so my wife and I were not only devastated but didn’t know what to do or where to turn next. Evans-Nordby was recommended to us by our Priest and I’m so glad he did. From the moment I talked to Tina on the phone I could tell we were in good hands as she took care of every detail. We met with her the next day and she went through all the aspects of what we were to expect in the coming days, weeks, then months ahead. Every employee we had contact with at Evans-Nordby was kind, compassionate and extremely professional. Thanks Tina and to all at Evans-Nordby for making an unbearable experience at least tolerable.
