 Kimberly Kay “Kim” Eakes, age 53, passed away Sunday afternoon, June 29, 2014, at Cuchara, Colorado.

She was born December 15, 1960, at Stanford, California, the daughter of Donald Lee and Beverly Ann (Mulholland) Davis.  As a young girl she was raised in the Bay Area, south of San Francisco, graduating from Lincoln High School in Stockton.  She later attended the University of California at Davis, receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science.  Upon her graduation, she began working for Dekalb Swine Breeders, which led her to Plains, Kansas, where she was a production supervisor. 
On January 4, 1986, she married Ronald E. Eakes at Stockton, California.  After their marriage, the couple continued to make their home in Plains.  As their business grew, she left Dekalb to assist in their construction business.
In 1988 they began their family and she became a homemaker and a community volunteer, having been active with the Plains Community Library, Plains P.T.O., Plains Community Building Project, Girl Scouts, and summer community recreational sports.  She was a member of Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church, also assisting in various capacities over the years.
