CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. – Kimberly A. Thibodeau-Singel, 52, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Dec. 31, 2013. Kim was born July 24, 1961, in Caribou, the daughter of the late Frank Thibodeau and Georgette (Giarard) Thibodeau of Bangor.
A graduate of Old Town High School, Kim spent many years of her career in administration. A position she held with Alaskan Industries, Inc. in Wasilla, Alaska, was especially important to Kim. She also remembered, with great fondness, a job she had as general manager of a radio station in Maine, formerly known as 104.7 Fox FM. In the past six years since moving to Wisconsin, she had developed her own pet sitting business which corresponded with a great fondness of animals that she always had. Kim loved spending time with her family, friends and her pets. She also enjoyed gardening, cooking, and shopping and was an avid and successful ebayer. She will be greatly missed and remembered fondly by many friends and family members.
Kim was predeceased by her father, Frank Thibodeau; her brother, Bobby Thibodeau; and her daughter, Megan Plumstead. She is survived by her husband, Ron Singel; and their son Nicholas Singel of Chippewa Falls, Wis.; her daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer Plumstead and Justin Fletcher of Troy, and their two children, Jeremy and Gavin; as well as her brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Karen Thibodeau of Old Town; brother and sister-in-law, Timothy and Sue Thibodeau of Victor, N.Y.; and nieces and nephew, Katie, Barbara and Matthew; as well as her mother, Georgette (Girard) Thibodeau.
