Keith & Keith Funeral Home

Kimberly Kay Folk joined our Heavenly Father on Thursday, April 4, 2019 having passed away peacefully in the home of her sister and best friend, René LaCoursiere (Frye), per Kim’s wishes. Both René and Jeffrey Lanich, the love of Kim’s life for 30 years, provided 24/7 care and attention for 37 days, where she spent every moment surrounded by family and immersed in joy.

Kim was born January 16, 1961 in Yakima, and attended Broadway Elementary, Lewis & Clark Junior High, and A.C. Davis High School. She spent her working years managing a variety of businesses and adored her career in retail.

She has now joined her father Gerald Folk Sr., mother Pearl Hauser, and stepfather Leroy Hauser in Heaven.

Kim is survived by her fiancé Jeffrey Lanich of Yakima; her sisters René LaCoursiere (Jim Frye) and Shirelle Turel of Yakima; her brother Gerald Folk Jr. (Soonyi) of Colorado Springs, CO; three step-siblings, Leroy “Butch” Hauser (Laurie) of Tonasket, WA; Brian Hauser (Duangporn) of Big Lake, AK; and Tracie Koontz (Michael) of Pahoa, HI; and many adoring nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Heartlinks Hospice & Palliative Care for the outstanding care they provided, and asks only for your thoughts and prayers through this time of mourning as Kim requested no burial services.

Your presence we miss, your memory we treasure, loving you always, forgetting you never.

Kim was an awesome cousin. I loved it when she would let me brush her long beautiful hair. Lots of memories hanging out with her at the house and swimming. She will be missed. Love you cousin Kim.

Rene', I am so sorry to hear about Kim. I have wonderful memories of you and your family when we lived in Yakima. One of my first babysitting jobs was you and your siblings which was always a fun time. Kim will forever be in your hearts. You and your family are in my prayers. Maureen (Shea) Coleman

René and Shirelle, Don’t know if you remember, but I spent a few summers with you and Kim when your mom watched me while my mom was working. I was heartbroken to read this morning of your sister’s illness and death. What a beautiful woman she became! Kim always seemed so much younger than me, but we were actually not that far apart in age. I have many fond memories of your family. Condolences to you and your brother. Take care of each other. God bless.

Rene’ I am so sorry to hear of Kim’s passing. So many wonderful memories with Kim, you and your entire family! The Folks were my second home. I would run into Kim every now and then at the store. No one had a more beautiful smile! Please let me know if I can do anything. My prayers are with you and all of your family.
