Kimberly Ann Loberg
Kimberly Ann Loberg (Smith) of Aurora, Illinois ended her journey Friday November 5th, 2021, which began 64 years ago on June 28th, 1957.
Born to Michael (deceased) and Rita (Schindel) Smith, Kimberly was a spirited child, always getting into mischief, which affectionately earned her the name dynamite from her grandfather. Growing up, Kimberly looked up to her older brother, Michael Smith (deceased), for his leadership qualities and loyalty. Ever the protective sister, while Kimberly was around, no one was allowed to pick on her younger sisters, Karen Smith, and Karla Jordan (Smith), as that was her job. Kimberly started a family at the early age of 17 with former husband of 20 years, Lennie Loberg (deceased) and is survived by her four children Dustin, Ryan (Trina), Michael, and Lennie (Emily) Loberg.
Kimberly was proudest to be a mother and worked tirelessly to ensure she could give her children everything they wanted and needed. She was never louder than she was while cheering and coaching her kids from the sidelines of a sports field.
Summer was her favorite time of the year, as every chance she got she spent out in the sun, swimming and working on her very important tan. The season wouldn’t be complete for Kimberly if she wasn’t at her favorite place by the lake in Wisconsin, spending time with the people she loved so much. Every day was filled with laughter around the table, playing her favorite game of dice.
Kimberly endured health complications due to a hereditary muscle and blood disorder that made life more difficult but that did not dampen her vivacious personality or her ability to enjoy life and the people around her. One of the brightest spots in her life were her grandchildren, Littlest Lennie, Desirae, Brandon, Alyssa, and Tony, all of whom were always on her mind. Kimberly saw herself as lucky to be able to live with a large family that included Andrew and Matthew Jordan, and their children Jacob, Kelly, Mariah, Madison, Olivia, and little Michael. She particularly loved to share her room with her beloved Boomer, the cat.
Kimberly is survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends that meant so much to her. Kimberly wasn’t afraid of what was to come next, as she knew in heaven, she’d be walking and reunited with the people she loved, still taking care of her family, just now a little farther away. A celebration of Kimberly’s life will follow at an undetermined date.
Arrangements entrusted to Chicagoland Cremation Options of Schiller Park, Illinois.
I am sorry to hear this news. Kim was a friend from grade school. She was always sweet and kind. She will be missed.
