Kim Rae Wilson

May 28, 1958 ~ February 8, 2020 (age 61)


Wilson, Kim Rae, age 61 of Tipp City, OH passed away Saturday, February 8, 2020, peacefully at her home surrounded by her family and friends. She was born May 28 1958, in Columbus Ohio, to her parents Howard James Wilson Jr. & Mary Lou (Kruskamp) Wilson. Kim enjoyed life-long learning and graduated from Tippecanoe High School in 1976, followed by earning multiple degrees and an MBA. She led a rewarding career in Marketing and Management for 30 years and truly loved what she did. She was a member of the Tipp City United Methodist Church and volunteered through Tipp Monroe Community Services. She exuded passion in all facets of her life and her generosity was well-known. She loved to "pay it forward" and was known at the Troy Starbucks as the "Starbucks Fairy". Her only request to the recipient was to pass the kindness along. 

She will be missed and remembered by her loving family: her parents; her children, Chelsea (Carabin) and Timothy Schneider, Ashton (Carabin) and Matthew Gordon; five grandchildren, Kenna and Jameson "Blaise" Schneider, Caroline, George "Shepard", and Peter Gordon; her brother, Howard Wilson III (Skip) and sister-in-law, Lucy Wilson; and dear friends, Angela DeCloedt, Tanda Garner, Debbie Eisnaugle, and many others. She was preceded in death by her grandson, Minne Gordon and great-grandmothers, Loretta (Wolfe) Wilson and Thelma (Kruskamp) Scott.
