Kim was born on March 12, 1974 in Streator to Thomas and Carol (Hillyer) Mills.  She married Brian Wicks on March 12, 2002.  He survives.

Also surviving is her mother Carol Pottinger of Streator, brother Stephen Mills of Ajo, AZ, grandmother Betty Mills of Ancona, sister-in-law, Marcia (Earl) Hale of Springfield, TN, nephew Mason Mills, great-nieces Savanna and Mya Mills, great-nephews, Brantley Mills and Keefer Herzog, aunt Audrey Klein of Florida, uncles, David Mills of Streator and Mike (Tara) Mills of Streator, father-in-law, Roy Wicks of Streator and brother-in-law, Rick (Linda) Wicks of Streator.

Kim graduated from Streator High School in 1992.  She was employed with Streator Unlimited until her health declined.

Kimberly had suffered and endured FTD for many, many years. Kim was a beautiful person throughout. She was pure at heart. She loved unconditionally. She was not defined by her debilitating disease. However, she defined herself. Her strength, and all the challenges of the disease. We are better people because of how she touched our lives and the strength and love she showed throughout. Her willingness to be happy. She openly gave us love and joy continuously no matter what. We will always love you Kim.

Memorials may be made in her name to Streator Unlimited.

I have known Kimmy since high school, she was such a sweet girl! I also was a staff member at SU where she attended and worked. She always had a smile and a giggle and could brighten your day. I am so sorry to hear of her passing and my sincerest condolences to her family! Carol, Steven and Marcia are in my thoughts

I last saw Kim probably 20 years ago but she was always a very kind, sweet person who just wanted to help others and for them to be happy. I'm so sorry she had to battle a disease so young and that her family and friends have to go through this loss. Prayers for all.
