Kim Wiesner Obituary

Kim Denise Wiesner

November 20, 1958 - March 15, 2024   

Kim came into the world on November 20, 1958 to parents Henry and Janice (nee Barnes) Beck.  She was the third of four children.  Kim was born at St. Joseph Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Kim was in drum and bugle corps and graduated from Custer High School.

Kim was married on her 18th birthday.  She had her daughter Desiree in 1977 and her son Bobby in 1979.  Kim lived with her family in Germany and Colorado until her divorce in 1981 when she moved back to Milwaukee with her kids.  Kim lived with her mom (and best friend) and was her caregiver until her unfortunate death in 2006.

Kim worked at Food Town as a cashier when her kids were little and later on at Menards in the hardware department.  But, her most important titles and ones she treasured deeply were: daughter, mom, and grandma grandma.

Kim loved being a daughter and she was a great one.  She would take her mother shopping and they would do woodwork together.  They would make all their outside holiday decorations, her mom would draw it and Kim would cut it out and paint it.  Kim and her dad talked everyday and they went every year on a trip to Hudson, Wisconsin to visit Hank's brother and his wife Joy.  Kim was very close to both of her parents and was devastated when they passed in 2006.

Kim was the best mother ever and excelled at it.  She would do anything for her kids.  She taught her kids at a young age, the love of music, oldies in particular.  Kim would play oldies on the record player and they would all dance for hours.  Their favorites were: Teen Angel, Leader of the Pack, Kung Foo Fighting, Last Kiss and My Boyfriend's Back.  Kim's kids fondly remember watching Knots Landing, China Beach, soap operas and the famous TGIF lineup together when they were younger.  In recent years, Kim and Desiree loved watching in ID channel and all the Housewives on Bravo together, her Don watched Lottery Dream Home and American Pickers while her, Bobby and Kati would talk about 90 Day Fiance.  When her kids were younger, Kim loved watching Desiree in choir concerts and performing in school plays and her favorite was cheering Bobby in school sports, but especially Little League.  Kim would call them at midnight every year on their birthdays and sing Happy Birthday.  Sundays were for family dinners, the Elvis hour and game night.

There was never a more loving or devoted grandma grandma than Kim.  She loved her grandchildren more than anything else in the world and they meant the world to her.  She loved babysitting for them when they were younger or just hanging out and talking as they got older.  Kim would do arts and crafts with them and loved when they would help fer in the garden.  She loved going and seeing them in school concerts and programs and was always their number 1 cheerleader.  Her grand kids would come to her for advice or just to talk.  Kim always had the biggest smile on her face and love and admiration in her eyes every time she looked at them or would talk about them.  She had a special and unique bond and closeness with each of them, was super proud of them and loved them with all her heart and soul.

Kim was by far the biggest Elvis fan.  She's been to Graceland, saw every one of his movies at least a dozen times, knows all his songs by heart and her room was even decorated in all Elvis memorabilia.  One of her biggest regrets was never being able to see him in concert.

Kim loved being outdoors and gardening.  She loved admiring the beautiful flowers and plants every summer, especially her rock garden.  Kim had a green thumb and it showed, her daughter was always envious.  Her yard was always beautiful and emmaculate and the prettiest on the block.

Kim had a knack for decoration and would decorate inside and out for every single holiday.  There was never a room inside the house that wasn't decorated, especially Christmas and Halloween.  All the homemade decorations Kim and her mom made filled the outside yard beautifully and were just breathtaking.  Neighbors couldn't wait for Kim to put up her decorations as it got everyone in the holiday spirit.

Kim loved food, especially desserts.  Her favorites were OutBack and Red Lobster, especially the crab stuffed mushroom and cheddar biscuits.  She loved eclairs, cream puffs, tapioca pudding, cake doughnuts, twizzlers, cherry/apple turnovers, hostess cupcakes, snowballs. chocolate covered cherries and homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Kim's favorite thing to do by far was hanging out with her family.  She loved going to State Fair every summer and seeing the Christmas lights at Country Christmas.  Kim loved watching and singing karaoke, going to the movies (her favorites were Elvis and It's a Wonderful Life), baking Christmas cookies, watching TV, playing board games and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.

Kim was diagnosed with COPD in 2009 and her breathing steadily got worse over time.  Even though she struggled, she never let it stop her from enjoying life or time with her family until recently.  Kim was a fighter and the strongest person her family knew.  Kim loved her family and her family loved her.  Kim fought very hard these past few months overcoming obstacles nobody thought she could.  Unfortunately, her body got tired and she was ready to go Home to be with God and her parents.

Kim will be deeply missed by her family and friends.  She will lovingly be remembered by her children Desiree (Don) Ehnert, Bobby (Mandi) Wiesner and grandchildren Danielle and Dylan Ehnert, Bailey and Reagan Wiesner.  Special sister of Sue Stroinski, Dawn Williams, Shirley Wittig and Sherry Grainger, adoring aunt of Kyle (Krista) Wygert, loving niece of John Beck and Bonus mom to Kati Bieszk, Bernell Thomas, Devin Murray, Dan Subotnik, Romero Ference, Lisa Weston and Lisa Hoefert.  Also many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  Kim was preceded in death by her parents Henry and Janice (nee Barnes) Beck and brother Donald Beck.

A special thank you to all the staff at Select Specialty Hospital, West Allis for taking such special care of Kim, treating her more like family than just a patient and becoming like a second family to her children.

"Your wings were ready, but our hearts were not."  Our mom, our Hero, Our Angel.

"The moment that you left me, my heart split in two.  One side filled with memories, the other died with you.  I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks.  Remembering you is easy.  I do it everyday, but missing you is a heartache that never goes away.  I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.  You see life has gone on without you, but will never be the same."
