Born on March 23, 1981, Kim attended St. Rita's grammar school, Marin Catholic High School (1999) and graduated with honors from UC Santa Barbara with a BA in Fine Arts (2003).
Following graduation, Kim and her three best friends, Sara, Mona and Serene enjoyed a two-month life-adventure traveling through South America.
Kim loved art, illustration, photography, sculpture and painting. She was a talented artist who expressed her emotions and political views through her art. She loved hiking, travel, music, puppies, the ocean and laughing. Her many friends were her extended family and always so dear to her heart. Smiles, joyful energy, warm hugs and encouragement poured endlessly from her. Kim gave the gift of happiness to all she knew. Kimmie is survived by her mother Barbara Dore; sister, Pam Dore; many many wonderful friends and loving family. We miss her dearly and find comfort that she is now with her dad, Pat Dore, who passed away one year ago.
