She was a homemaker. Kim enjoyed drawing, art, interior design, and watching movies. 

She was sassy, spunky, quick to make a smart aleck reply. Her heart was as big as a room. She had a loud laugh which she used often. She loved animals, dogs and cats in particular. At one point, she rescued five dogs from the pound because she just couldn’t decide who to leave behind, so she brought them all home.

She is survived by her husband, Roger N. Winters, and son, Will Winters, both of North Manchester; two sisters, Lori Gatwood and Melinda (Chris) Flaxman, both of Phoenix, Ariz., and her half brother, Chris Gatwood.  S
he was preceded in death by her parents, son, Nicholas Winters, and her brother, Bill Gatwood.
