Kimberly Ann Carr born December 28, 1960 in Dallas, Texas, passed away on Saturday, August 22, 2015. A memorial service will be held Sunday, September 6, 2015 at 2:30 pm in the Norma Bryan All Faiths Chapel at Arbor Oaks – Crestview in Bryan. Travis Bryan III will officiate.
Kim grew up in Dallas and attended Highland Park schools, graduating from Highland Park High School in 1979 and she received an Associate Degree from Dallas Community College. She moved to Bryan in 1999 to be close to her family, and work for the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service. Kim worked at TEEX for 16 years and what she cherished most were the many friendships she made during that time.
Family, friends, travel and nature were what she treasured in life. As a very young child outdoor activities were what she loved most. Catching frogs while ‘gardening’ with her adored grandmother, riding and grooming her horse ’Nubbin’, exploring the woods and spending nights in her tree house all filled her free-roaming spirit. She eventually bought an RV and took it to many state parks to hike the trails. Her favorite area to return to every year was Inks Lake in Texas hill country, especially when the bluebonnets were in bloom.
This brings us to the present and what she cherished was hiking different trails on Big Sur on her visits to Carmel-By-The-Sea, California. On these trips she would also make arrangements to go sailing with a local sailboat guide, Christian. She took many trips with Christian to whale-watch the migrating whales off the California coast. Her final wish is to have her ashes sprinkled into the waters of Monterrey Bay from Christian’s sailboat. Kim’s family will make this final trip with her to the site of natural beauty she so treasured to fulfill her wish.
Kim is survived by her mother, Grace Ann Carr and cousin, Travis Bryan III and his wife, Becky Bryan, and cousin Timothy Norman Bryan, all of Bryan Texas.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to The Aggieland Humane Society.
