Kimberly C. Wilson of Battle Creek passed away on March 26, 2023. She was born on June 2, 1970 to Ardith (Neidlinger) and Dan Laggis, and she grew up in Lawton, MI with her brother James D. Laggis. Kim graduated from Lawton High School and continued her education at Kellogg Community College and Everest Institute to become a licensed massage therapist.
Beautiful, generous, and kind, Kimberly Wilson was an extraordinary person that was loved by so many. Her love for people and massage therapy lead to her successful career at Craft Chiropractic. Giving back to others was the driving force which influenced Kim’s desire to continue her education in working with crystals, stones, oils, faith, and energy. Anything that would help in the healing of others, Kimberly made it her priority.
Family was a big part of her life. Kim was one proud mother of her daughter, Camille Wilson. If there was one thing she loved, it was coaching her daughters’ softball team at Bellevue. Kim never missed a single game, she dedicated much of her time to practicing and molding her strong prodigy daughter. But as life carried on, and the family tree grew, nothing brought her more joy than seeing her daughters bright eyed, curly hair grandson, Kaiden.
We love and miss her dearly.
“Angels all around, to love and protect you forever and ever. Love you, Kim.”
