She was born Kim McConnell on June 6, 1961 to John and Peggy McConnell in Abilene, TX.  She grew up in Colorado and graduated from Henderson HS in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1979.  She moved to Abilene with her family in 1980 and worked at the Bridge helping other disabled adults.  She completed the work and got her cosmetology license from Abilene Cosmetology and worked at several nail salons in Abilene and was featured in Nail Tech magazine for her abilities, not her disability, in creating beautiful nails.  She never complained about the hand that she was dealt in life and loved life through it all while cherishing her family with all her heart.


She is survived by her daughter, Lexi Everett of Abilene; her father, John McConnell of Abilene; a sister, Nikki Grisham and husband Shawn of Abilene; and a brother, Chad McConnell and wife Missy of Abilene. She also has many, many nieces and nephews who loved her so.  


Her mother Peggy McConnell and her grandparents Inez and Rex McFall preceded her in death.


Pallbearers will be Justin Grisham, Cameron Bennett, Case Jackson, Trey Gilmore, Daryl Morgan and Guy Everett.
