Kimberli Dawn Rumburg

January 8, 1966 — November 30, 2023

Kimberli Dawn Rumburg, the woman who seasoned life with laughter, left this world for the grand stage in the sky on November 30, 2023. Born on January 8, 1966, in Hagerstown, MD, Kimberli was the spirited concoction of Ida Murray and the late Austin Abbott. She danced into the world with a wooden spoon in hand, ready to cook up some joy, and left us from her final curtain call in Taylors, SC.

Kimberli, also known as Kim to those who couldn't handle her full star power, graduated from Hagerstown High School with a diploma in one hand and a joke in the other. She found her calling as a waitress, serving up not just meals, but a side of zingers and one-liners that kept her customers coming back for more than just the daily specials.

Her husband, Jeffrey Rumburg, was her biggest fan and often found himself the loving butt of her jokes. They shared a life that was the perfect blend of sitcom and romance, proving that love can be both tender and tickling. Kimberli's mother, Ida, survives her, undoubtedly still chuckling at her daughter's last wisecrack.

Kimberli's interests were as colorful as her personality. She could whip up a feast that would make your taste buds stand up and applaud, and her crafts were the stuff of legend – or at least of a very lively craft fair. Her TV critiques were as sharp and funny as any late-night show host's, and she was the kind of friend who could turn a frown upside down before you even realized you were wearing it.

Her collection of antique aluminum wasn't just a hobby, it was her way of reminding us that things from the past, like good jokes, never go out of style. Kimberli was the epitome of someone who cared deeply about others, always ready with a warm meal, a crafted gift, or a quip to lighten the load.

Spirited, loving, and funny are mere understatements when describing Kimberli. She had the rare ability to fill a room with laughter without telling a single joke – her presence was the punchline we all needed. We'll miss her uproarious laughter, her uncanny ability to find humor in the mundane, and the way she made every day feel like an episode of the best comedy show.

Kimberli's life was a masterclass in mirth, a symphony of chuckles, and a testament to the power of a good giggle. Her legacy will be the smiles she planted in all of our hearts, the kind that blooms every time we think of her and her comedic spirit. So here's to Kimberli Dawn Rumburg, the woman who taught us that life doesn't have to be serious to be seriously beautiful. Curtain down, applause up, and laughter forever.
