Kimberly Jo (Endriss) Francis

Pine River

Kimberly Jo (Endriss) Francis was born Jan. 15, 1966, in Hampton, Iowa, the daughter of Glenn and Ethel Endriss, and passed away unexpectedly Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, at St. Cloud Hospital.

She graduated from Pine River High School in 1984. After graduating she held several jobs until she was able to do what she loved most, which was make music. Kim had the ability to play any instrument she picked up and had a lovely voice to go with it. She traveled with her then-husband (Roger Francis) around the United States to entertain, until they landed in Nashville, Tenn., for a few years. She had a gift of knitting and crocheting the most beautiful things. Everyone wanted one of her afghans. The one thing she will be remembered for the most was her heart of gold and the wanting and willingness to do anything she could for anyone.

Kim is survived in death by her five children, Brittney, Sean (Heather), Brianna, Caitlin Francis and Allen LeFebvre; four grandchildren, Landon, Lane, Kiya and Riley; her mother, Ethel Endriss; and six siblings, Kathy (Scott), Glenn Jr. (Meredith), Kelly (Joseph), Kari (Andy), Thomas and Clifford.

She was preceded in death by her father, Glenn Endriss.

Memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at Riverview Church, Pine River.

Arrangements are with Kline Funeral Home, Pine River.
