Clearwater, KS - Kim D. Stitzer Taylor-Blasi

Kimberly Stitzer-Taylor died peacefully at age 49, on Monday, January 29, 2018, after a long battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her family and friends in Wichita, Kansas. How she lived is more important, than how Kim died. Kim, a believer in Christ Jesus, lived to serve the elderly, the disabled, the terminally ill and the discarded. She worked as a professional care-giver at Clearwater nursing home that primarily served the elderly, including Veterans. Her people-skills, professionalism and empathy for her clients left a legacy of grateful families too numerous to count.  Kim earned the right to hear other people’s stories and she responded with wisdom and angelic empathy, even while she struggled to breathe. Her speciality was recognizing and honoring those who were often discarded by our society.  Kim wore many hats with distinction - Christian, counselor, mother, professional care-giver, Community Pillar, citizen, sister and daughter.   Even though she desperately fought to live, death for Kim was a release from pain and suffering. She relished in the sweet expectation of meeting our Lord - face to face.  She said, “when I get over this, I’m never gonna lay down again.” Visitation, 9am-7pm, Wed, with family present, 5:30-7pm, Webb-Shinkle Mortuary. Services, 10am, Thurs, Clearwater Church of Christ. She is survived by daughters, Megan and Molly Blasi of the home; parents, Jim and Esther Taylor of Elmer, MO; sisters, Sherry (Pat) Davidson, Patty (David) Blankenship , Robin Potts, Brandy (Keith) Smith, Bobbie Burnett; brother, COL. Richard (Chiara) Stitzer and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Kim was a big part of our family life in the 1980's. She lived with us and became like a daughter to me. We 're gently re-connected. She was very special to Scott and I. We loved her then and loved her now. Rest in peace sweetheart.

To Kim's family - I will always remember the kindness that Kim showed to my Mother while she was a resident at CN&R. Kim also always took time to talk to my Dad when he was there to visit Mom. She was wonderful with every resident and we know they were in good hands when Kim was caring for them. Praying for your comfort in the days ahead and thankful that Kim is now at peace.

Megan and Molly,

My fondest memories of your mom was when she was able to mow the grass of the church building quickly zooming across at a good clip and how much she love you two both. The Church is always there for you and will help out in anyway we can. Knowing words will not help at this time, and at a lost for words. All I can say is, I'm so sorry.

Frank Tran
