Kimberly began life on August 11, 1981 at Torrejon AB, Spain while her Dad was serving in the US Air Force. On December 23, 2023, she changed her address to 777 Pearly Gates Rd, Heaven (please forward all mail to this new address) due to a complication from pneumonia.
Kimberly worked as a manager at American Eagle at River Crossings in Macon where she loved her AE family and her job.
She is survived by her children Kailey Beth Tyo 19, Andrew Chase Tyo 17, Tavin Noah Tyo 15, (her little firecracker TNT) and Jaxson Broc Stewart 8. She is also survived by her parents Scott and Lorraine Howard (née Crampton) (age is none of your business!), Baby Brother Daniel Scott Howard and his wife Kristina Howard (née Paterson), and nephews Kole Landon Howard 15 and Joseph Christopher Howard 13.
Kimberly loved people and she could put a smile on your face with the warmth of her smile.
She didn't do things halfway, she put everything into whatever the task at hand was. If one of the kids said, "Mama I have to turn in a project and it is due tomorrow and I think the teacher just told me today", they would get the stink eye and she would help them get it done.
Kimberly was a shopper and Kailey Beth being her only girl, Kimberly had to train her properly. Kailey graduated from Kimberly's SHOP TIL YOU DROP ON CHRISTMAS EVE Class. Kim enjoyed crafting, attending Christmas made in the South and she loved going to Country & Western Concerts (Kimberly would say, "Mom they dropped the Western years ago, it is just Country!)
She loved helping people and making them smile.
BUNCO was a fun night with her friends, (the best group of ladies ever!)
One of her Favorite things to do was watching FRIENDS with Tavy baby, eating Oreo's together and going to FRIENDS Trivia night with the kids.
She enjoyed watching her boys play baseball and especially being the team Mom, aka Bathroom runner, she could get those boys to the bathroom and back in the dugout!
As a Former Band Nerd, she was the best cheerleader to her 2 Band Nerds (Andrew and Tavin)!
Kimberly was an unpaid UBER driver, taking Kailey gymnastics practices and the boys to baseball practices.
Her FAVORITE thing to do was to spend time with her kids. They would go upstairs to her room every night. Each one on their own and sometimes all of them would end up there together. Family was important.
Best time of the day at our house was dinner; loud, louder and fun! No one was allowed to eat until we said, "AMEN". If one of them forgot, they immediately became Jewish, and they would pray after they ate.
Daniel wanted everyone to know, being the baby brother to Kimberly was not all joy, Daniel still has a scar on his side from her touching it with a incandescent light bulb when she was 4, threw a dart in his foot and dropped a curling iron on his leg.....it is time the world knows....but she was alright!
Kimberly will be missed by everyone that knows and loves her. Mom will miss her, leaving for work on Saturday morning, "Mom did you make breakfast tacos?" "Yes and I packed it for you". Scott loved Kimberly, she was his babydoll, they had the best talks, nothing is better than a girl and her Daddy!
Today if you love someone tell them, Kimberly knew after 43 days in the hospital that she was loved.
Life is short, don't judge anyone, just love and forgive. Today we have, tomorrow is not promised. Her Dad told her, you have now, do your best!
GOD thank you for giving Kimberly to us, she is the sweetest!
