Kimberlie “Kimmie” Norine Hansen spent her life as an extraordinary daughter, sister and friend. Kimmie passed beyond the veil on September 26, 2022. As she passed, she was held by her mother, surrounded by her father, her brother and a few close friends. Kimmie was born to Erik and Krista Palmer Hansen on May 30, 1998, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Kimmie was burdened by various health conditions throughout her life but she never lost her smile. Kimmie was given an extra season by the Lord to bless the lives of everyone she came in contact with. She fought for every single day she had. She never weighed more than 100 pounds but she was the strongest person. She took every new fight as a challenge. Anyone that hugged her knew of her strength with her famous Kimmie hugs.
She loved attending West Jordan High School, South Valley School, Seminary and Institute. She loved learning and thought everyone made it harder than it had to be.
In her 24 years she lived a very fulfilled life. She was able to interact with celebrities, senators and other notable people. She was crowned Utah Miss Amazing twice. Every one that met her knew that she had the light of Christ with her at all times. She never met a person that, with enough hugs, couldn't be her friend.
From the time she was very small she spent time volunteering and raising money for various charities. Her favorite organization she raised money for was the Mascot Miracles Foundation. Kimmie spent her good days the last 5 years painting masterpieces. These would be given to loved ones or auctioned off to help raise money for her "mascot friends." With a dear friends help her art work was sold internationally.
Kimmie was preceded in death earlier this year by her best friend, her grandma Betty Palmer. Kimmie and her "BFF" spent every possible moment that they could together. She was also preceded by her grandparents Finn and Norine Brown Hansen. Kimmie is survived by her parents and her amazing brother and friend Johnathan, many family members and friends.
Kimmie set a wonderful example of strength, courage, integrity, faith and love. She had a huge impact on so many lives and will be deeply missed.
Thank you to all of the hospitals, doctors and nurses who helped Kimmie through her many challenges. And a very special thank you to Dr. Jeffrey Jackson, Dr. Francis Filloux and Lauren Hudson.
