Kim James Hemby, 69, of Greenville, passed away peacefully on May 11, 2023 at her home, surrounded by the love of her husband of 42 years.

Born in Hugo, Oklahoma on October 2, 1953, Kim was the beloved daughter of Louis Palmer James and Betty Jo Young. As the middle of three vibrant sisters, Kim radiated a genuine curiosity, joy, and love for the world and all those in her life. Her tastes were electric and passionate, ranging from the heat of salsa to the harmony of a well-tuned symphony. Kim deeply cherished her family, her lifelong friendships, and her treasured pets.
Her curiosity extended to the both the arts and the sciences in their numerous expressions. Her pursuit of knowledge led her to study tirelessly during nights and weekends, culminating in a graduate degree in Business Science, which she earned with honors. Kim also had an impressive taste in music, and she was a steadfast believer in the power and importance of love. Her absence will be profoundly felt by all who knew her.

Kim's legacy continues through her loving husband, Jack Hemby; her son, Matthew Hemby, and his wife, Maitland; her sisters, Sharon Oliver and her husband, Tom, and Joni Holder and her husband, Jon; her step-daughter, Meagan Anderson and her husband, Randy; and her grandchildren, Bailey Reed, William Anderson, and Anezka Hemby.

A celebration of Kim's life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 10th, at Paradise Baptist Church, located at 3688 CR 2170, Caddo Mills, Texas 75135. All friends who wish to their respects are warmly invited to attend.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made to the Alzheimer's Association in Kim's memory.

Coker-Mathews Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

    I am so saddened to hear this! Kim was a delight. I knew her from E-Systems/Raytheon.
    She always was so enthusiastic & energized by whatever she was up to and I, in turn, felt happy just to be around her.
    I lost track of her quite some time ago and I’m so sorry she is no longer with us.
    She always spoke of you, Matthew.
    God bless you & your dad.
