Kimberly Iverson recently passed away peacefully at her home in Columbus, Ohio. Born in Iowa, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Jeanne (Andrews) Iverson. She relocated numerous times in support of her father’s career with the DuPont Company.
Kimberly "Kim" graduated from High School at Collegiate in Richmond, Virginia. She was intrigued by both the arts and the sciences. She graduated from Wake Forest University and the Georgia Institute of Technology with degrees in English, Biology, and Chemical Engineering.
Kim was employed for many years by the DuPont Company and employed her considerable skills in Sales and Operations at multiple DuPont sites. After leaving DuPont, Kim moved to Columbus, Ohio and was employed by Hexion / Momentive, where she rose to the position of Vice President of Safety & Health. Kim made and was blessed with good friends across the country who she considered an extension of her family.
In retirement, Kim dedicated herself to causes she valued. She volunteered with an ESL organization and with the Ohio Reformatory for Women. She was a devout member of the Unity Church of Delaware (in Ohio), where she also served as Board member.
Kim will be remembered as a kind, beautiful, thoughtful soul who cherished her family and friends. She loved traveling, crafting, Broadway shows, fitness & running, hiking, and rescuing dogs, especially her beloved Nikki. We will miss her inimitable laugh, her loyal friendship, and the unwavering love and support she gave to those of us blessed to know her.
Kim was preceded in death by her parents Robert Iverson and Jeanne (Andrews) Iverson. She is survived by her brother Tracy Iverson, her niece Emma Iverson, her great-niece Aspen Piper, and her sister-in-law Tracy Cook.
The family would like to thank Tish for her bedside nursing along with Destiny and the staff of ComfortKeepers for their compassionate care. A special thank you to Frances, Kim’s neighbor and dear friend, who went above and beyond the call of their friendship time and again. We are grateful to her friend Marian as well as Joanne and Karen for providing spiritual guidance. And to Emily for giving Kim’s dog Nikki a new home.
Funeral services will be private. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kim’s memory may be made to the ASPCA or any organization dedicated to the rescue of animals.
