Kimberly Shawn Houtz was lifted into Heaven on March 9, 2019, while participating in one of the adventures she loved so well. She is gone too soon for those of us who are left behind.
Our beautiful angel was born February 3, 1965 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Kay Thatcher Houtz and the late Lieutenant Philip D. Houtz. She both attended and graduated from Pasco Comprehensive High School and the University of South Florida. She spent her life taking care of her family, raising 2 beautiful daughters, all the while working hard at her career to become the National Sales Training Manager of Biosurgery at Sanofi Genzyme.
Kim was a dedicated and loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and “Gigi” to her Arabella Rosemarie, Thatcher John, and Brooks McGill.
Her spirit and love of life were contagious and generously shared, and she never met a stranger. To have been loved by Kim is a blessing.
Kim was preceded in death by her father, Philip D. Houtz. She is survived by her mother Kay Thatcher Houtz, her two brothers Todd and Trey, her two daughters Elizabeth and Christine and her three grandchildren.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
