Kimberly Frances Brown, age 56, of Walker, Minnesota journeyed home on Thursday, October 24th, 2019 from the Essentia Hospital in Deer River, MN after a long, hard fought battle with cancer. She was born in Cass Lake, MN on September 27th, 1963 to Hazel (Reese) and Charles Nordmarken.
Kimmy, who grew up in Minneapolis, was a very outspoken woman with a contagious laugh. She enjoyed the night life of the city and beverages with her friends. Kimmy enjoyed playing the slots at the casino, going to rummage sales, playing bingo, watching the food channels, speaking her mind on Facebook and getting back rubs from her grandchildren. She was a great mother, grandma, daughter, sister and friend. Kimmy moved back home to Onigum to be with her family during her final days.
She is welcomed home by her father, Charles Nordmarken; sister, Kari Nordmarken; brothers, Walter Brown and Darrin Olson; grandma, Margaret Reese; uncle, Sam Reese; niece, Donna Jones and nephews, Jesse and Cory Jones.
