Kimberly was born in Amarillo, Texas on October 14, 1967 to Jeff Braddock and Beverly Holcomb. She was a lifelong resident of Amarillo and a 1986 graduate of Bible Heritage. In 2006, she married the love of her life, Randy Shane Manning.
Kim loved to cook. She could prepare a meal out of just about anything. When not dishing out amazing meals in the kitchen, she was often times found cross-stitching, or crocheting. Kim absolutely loved the mountains, and any chance she had, she and Randy would make their way there to camp, another one of Kim’s favorite things to do. He dream vacation came true when she spent time in Vallecito Lake, Colorado camping in the mountains near the lake.
Kim was a simple lady who enjoyed the simple things in life. Her family and friends were absolute treasures in her world, and she adored them as such. Her dogs Bella and Maddie were more than just animals, they were her children. Kim was loved by everyone who was blessed to know her, and she loved them equally. Kim’s laugh and smile were infectious.
Kim’s memory will be cherished by her beloved husband Randy, her mother Beverly, and many other loving family and dear friends. She is preceded in death by her step father Robert Holcomb, and Grandparents Sam R. and Maxine Jefferson.

Kim was the kindest person I’ve worked with. Walking in every day to see her welcoming smile just made work so much better. We called her the bird whisperer, she was the only one brave and patient enough to capture a pigeon that flew into our office. She calmly walked right up to it, when the rest of us were too scared to, she talked soothingly to it and gently held it in her hands to set it free. She was my hero that day. She will be dearly missed and I’ll always remember my precious friend Kim.

i met Kim when I was thirteen, when i went to work for her family's business, she was so quiet and such a sweet young lady. As kim grew older, we shared time going places just having fun together. She was a great friend and she will truly missed. See you again one day sweet lady.

In loving memory of a kind and beautiful co-worker and friend. Will cherish the special memories of times gone by...forever in our hearts. Kim was indeed a blessing on earth and now an angel in heaven. God has prepared a restful place for her as her family and friends search for some kind of solace. So until we meet again...Godspeed my sister in Christ! Love always, Cyndi

I remember when working with Kim at Anderson's she would tell us stories of all the scary stuff happening at their haunted house at nite.... Kim would say Randy took sleeping pills and not hear anything ... I told Kim to leave the house at night go to her mom's house and wake up and be back home before the alarm goes off, at lest then she would get some good sleep.... she love Randy so much that she didn't want to leave him all alone

The most kindest woman I ever had the chance to meet. I will never forget how u tried to rescue that gopher from Stubby last summer while we watched from the living room window laughing so hard. I love you Kim, you made everybody's life a little brighter for being in it. We were so lucky to call you family. From one Tootie to the other.
