Kimberly Ann (Land) Bell, 32, died Monday, June 9, 2014, at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. That morning, Heaven became blessed with one more angel.
Kim was born on Sept. 7, 1981, in Kearny, Ariz., to Bonnie Broyles and Curtis Land. At the age of 1, Kim and her parents moved to Gillette, where she resided for the past 31 years. Throughout her youth, Kim participated in rodeo and won several awards. On Feb. 20, 2004, Kim had given herself away in marriage to Ryan Bell. Together, Kim and Ryan had three beautiful children: Rebecca, Valerie and Ian.
Kim’s main job in life was a stay-at-home mom, being promoted to Super Mom. In 2013 the family moved to Lovell for a brief time, and during their time in Lovell, Kim made many good friends. She was a devoted mother, wife and friend.
Kim enjoyed reading, hiking, horses and waterfalls. Other passions of hers were antiquing and home decorating. Kim was a member of the Eagles Auxiliary and a member of Family Life Church since the age of 11. She was working on getting her counseling certificate for couples counseling within the church. Kim also taught classes with children’s ministry and vacation Bible study. Her faith was a large part of her life.
Kim is survived by her husband, Ryan Bell; children Rebecca, Valerie and Ian; step-son Brayden Bell; parents Bonnie and Lee Broyles and Curtis and Stephanie Land; brother Travis Land; step-brother Matt Karm; maternal grandmother Ethel “Smokey” Norton; loyal dog Rambo and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces.
She was preceded in death by grandparents Kenneth and Sue Land and grandfather Robert Norton. Now Kim has the blessed opportunity to help God watch over her family.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Family Life Church, Dr. Albert Steplock, Dr. Allen Wicks and their medical teams, the staff of CCMH and all of the many friends who have been so supportive.
