Kimberly Jo Hiser (Pruett), loving wife, mother, and daughter passed away on Thursday, January 14th, 2021. She is survived by her parents, Doug and Courtney Pruett, her husband, Mike, her children, Kate (Logan), Matthew (Samantha), Mark, her grandson, Leo, and her brothers-in-law, Steve (Denise) and David (Theresa). Kim was preceded in death by her grandparents, Winona and Bernard, and her father and mother-in-law, Chuck and Polly.
Raised in Hilliard, Kim graduated from Hilliard High School in 1988. She graduated from Columbus State Community College with her associate’s degree in veterinary technology. She worked for many years as a vet tech. She deemed herself a “vet med lifer”.
Kim was a lifelong lover of animals. As a child, she rescued and brought home any stray animal she could. As an adult, she loved a long nap on the couch surrounded by her dogs and cats. Kim’s chickens and ducks made her days in her garden plentiful. An avid reader, Kim preferred a book, but also never missed an episode of 90 Day Fiance or Dance Moms. In recent years she fell into the online planning community, making many friends along the way. Her office was filled with fancy pens, stickers, washi tape, and a variety of planners.
The truest bright spot in Kim’s life was her family. Mike and Kim were married in 1991, raised three children, and welcomed their first grandchild in December. Kim loved Sunday dinners with her family and holidays spent together at her parent’s house. Doug and Kim bonded over their love of gardening and enjoyed time together in their respective gardens. Kim’s sense of humor was always present. While making Christmas cookie ornaments alongside her mother and daughter she used strictly the camel cookie cutter, finding it amusing. When her grandson was born, she declared herself Leo’s “Grandmoo” because grandma was too boring.
