Kimberley Mae Dorken was born in Grand Falls, Nfld. on March 31, 1966, to proud parents, Gregory and Eleanor Dorken. She was raised in Nfld., Labrador, Slave Lake and Medicine Hat. Kim was a pleasure to be around! She was always happy and made a point of putting those around her first, especially when it came to her pride and joy… her black cat, Mick. She was quick to forgive, and never held a grudge with anyone about anything… no matter what! It was that same upbeat, positive attitude that helped her take home numerous bowling trophies over the years through Special Olympics. A come and go time of remembrance will be held in the coming months with further announcements to be made at that time.

I remember Kim in school in Slave Lake. The first thing I remember thinking of Kim is how strong and feisty she was. Kim was always wanting to do the right thing. I’m sorry for your loss. Kim was a nice person that I was happy I got to meet and be around.
