Kim Marie Shipe, 61 of North Ridgeville passed away following a brief illness. She was always good at whatever she did, and gave the best customer service as a waitress in various establishments throughout the area. Kim was a friend to everyone and was generous almost to a fault, helping whoever she could. She enjoyed being the center of attention and was always the life of the party. Above everything, Kim was a wonderful mother and grandmother and was the special “Mon Chéri” to her sister Kelly.
Kim is survived by her loving daughters, Danielle Lesco and Alexis Shipe; grandchildren, Khloe Lesco, Rylen Monetti, Samuel Monetti, and “Harley”; mother, Carol Koester; and siblings, Scott Lesco (Sandy), Eddie Koester (Donna), and Kelly Knable. She was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth Lesco.
Abiding by Kim’s wishes, there will be no services. Bollinger Funeral Services is assisting the family with the arrangements. Anyone wishing to send cards, flowers or donations, may send them directly to Carol Koester and Alexis Shipe.
