Ms. Pruitt

Kimberly Jane Pruitt, 55, passed away Monday, Feb. 18, 2019.

Kimberly was born April 1, 1963, at Fremont Memorial Hospital, to Ernest and Marilyn (Blankenship) Pruitt.

She is survived by her two sisters, Diana (Jeffrey) Cable of Morganton, North Carolina, and Karen S. Pruitt of Tiffin; five nephews and nieces, Jason (Michelle) Brandt of Findlay, Jessica (Merl) Stanley of Morganton, North Carolina, Michael Porter of Mount Holly, North Carolina, Rachel Porter of Mount Holly, North Carolina, and Evyn Stevens of Tiffin; a great-niece, Jayda Brandt; and a great nephew, Maddox Brandt.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

She was a member of the Clyde High School graduating class of 1981 and a former employee of Whirlpool Corp. in Clyde.

Kimberly was well-known for her love of antiques, music and movies, free spirit, sense of humor and her devotion to friends and family. Notorious for mischievous antics such as daycare breakouts, candy raids and her infamous scavenger hunts, Kimberly’s imagination was surpassed only by her love for children. She enjoyed watching sporting events in which her family members were involved, her encouraging voice could be heard above others in the crowd. Kimberly loved to play games. Whether she was playing a rousing game of rummy or dominoes, annihilating you in a game of Scrabble or engaged in waffle mania, Kimberly was always the life of the party. She hosted THE best sleepovers. Her most beloved childhood memories include summers at her grandmother’s farm in West Virginia and growing up on Stoner Road.

There will be no funeral, at her request.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.

Heck Funeral Home, Milton, West Virginia, is handling arrangements for the family.
