Kimberly Anne Newman
Kimberly Anne Newman, 46, of Greenwood, passed away Wednesday, June 19, 2013.
Kim was born July 26, 1966, in Indianapolis, to James R. “Bub” and Barbara (Parish) Reynolds.
Survivors include her loving husband, John Dennis “Denny” Newman of Greenwood; her two daughters, Ashton and Karlie; mother, Barbara Reynolds of Franklin; father-in-law, Joseph Newman of Indianapolis, stepmother-in-law, Connie (North) Newman of Indianapolis; two sisters, Brenda Heidelberger of Indianapolis and Ellen Wilson of Greenwood; two sisters-in-law, Susan Packard of McCordsville and Deb Rishel-Newman of Fishers; three brothers-in-law, Robert Newman of Fishers, David Packard of McCordsville and Bill Wilson of Greenwood; one niece, Kortny Wilson; and three nephews, Blake and Aaron Heidelberger and Alex Packard.
Kim was preceded in death by her father, James R. “Bub” Reynolds; and her mother-in-law, Barbara “Bunni” Newman.
Kim’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ was the foundation of her life and her relationships. Her marriage was a “cord of three”: Kim, Denny and Jesus. She raised her children to love and respect the Lord. She interacted with family, friends and strangers the same way in which Jesus did: with love, grace and acceptance.
Kim loved mornings before school with her girls. They would pray and do daily devotions. She took the responsibility of raising her children to love the Lord very seriously.
Kim worked part time for Paradigm Media Consultants, volunteered at the school and was an active member of Greenwood Christian Church, where she attended Bible studies, worked in the nurseries, organized VBS and Ladies Christmas Tea and helped with other activities.
Kim suffered from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. She approached this battle as a journey. She held close to the Scripture Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” The song “Strong Enough” by Matthew West was her song of inspiration.
Kim died knowing that God is bigger than the battle.
There will be a celebration of her life at 7 p.m. Friday at Greenwood Christian Church, 2045 Averitt Road. Visitation will be from 3 p.m. until service time Friday at the church.
Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service and Crematory, Greenwood Chapel, has been entrusted with arrangements.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the Pulmonary Rehab Program, Methodist Health Foundation, 1800 N. Capitol Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46207.
