Karen S. Kimball was “the nicest person you could know,” her husband Mark said. “She was kind to everybody, and that drew people to her.”
    Mrs. Kimball was devoted to helping others, her husband said, noting she donated blood and platelets often and, along with her co-workers, organized raffles, brat fries and other fundraisers.
    The group ultimately raised more than $15,000 for the Make A Wish Foundation and other charities, her husbnad said, adding they also  helped support the Port Washington Food Pantry and worked to organize a group to wire an addition to the Family Sharing building with electricity when it was built.
    “That was the kind of gal Karen was,” her husband said.
    Mrs. Kimball died at Horizon Hospice in Mequon on Saturday, Sept. 16. She was 72.
    Mrs. Kimball, who lived in Port, suffered from a number of ailments, her husband said.
    She was a native of Indianapolis, born on Oct. 21, 1944, to James and Mildred Fernkas Johnson.
    Known as Suzie, a derivation of her middle name, when she grew up, Mrs. Kimball moved to Wisconsin in 1970.
    She worked a number of jobs before joining We Energies as a material handling specialist.
    One of her co-workers was Mark Kimball, who she married on Sept. 30, 2007, at the Landt-Thiel American Legion  Post in Saukville.
    “She was a hard worker who was loved by all,” her husband said.
    Mrs. Kimball enjoyed bowling at Willie’s Wish in downtown Port — particularly the socializing that came with the sport, her husband said — camping trips to Florida in winter and vacationing at a cottage her brother owned in Gresham. While there, she would often take a side trip to the casino, her husband said.
    She also enjoyed socializing with her neighbors, creating a group her husband called the “women’s club.”
    Mrs. Kimball is survived by her husband Mark of Port Washington; daughter Theresa (Ron) Biddle Klippel of Oostburg; sons Michael (Michele) Biddle Sr. of Port Washington, Jeff (Cynthia) Johnson of Georgia, John David Biddle of California and Christopher Biddle of New Mexico; and stepchildren Trea Kimball of Wisconsin Rapids, Rachel (Paul) Krause of Fredonia, Jenny Taucher of Port Washington and Sara (Dan) McManus of Port Washington.
    She is further survived by her brother Jim (Diane) Johnson of Germantown; sisters Gwen (Brian) Huffaker of Ohio and Paula Chadwick of Indiana; and stepbrother-in-law Ed Hamilton of Indianapolis.
    Mrs. Kimball was preceded in death by her stepsister Charlene Hamilton and stepson-in-law Paul Krause.
    A private family gathering will be held at a future date.
    In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of the donor’s choice are suggested.
    “At least be kind to someone you love,” the family said. “That was what she was all about, loving others.”
