Helen Kim Gagnon

Gagnon, Helen

d. June 24, 2013

Kim passed away on Monday, June 24, 2013, at the age of 53 after a yearlong battle with cancer.
Kim was born in Marysville, and grew up in Davis. She graduated from Davis Senior High School in 1977 and went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in community studies from UC Santa Cruz. She got her master’s degree from the University of San Francisco and became a licensed marriage and family therapist in 1992.
Kim worked for social services agencies in Sacramento, Marin and Sonoma counties before opening her own practice in Petaluma and Novato. She specialized in attachment therapy for adopted and foster children and their families.
Kim is survived by her husband of 20 years, Tom Graham of Petaluma; her daughter, Nellie, also of Petaluma; her stepchildren, James (Kelley) Graham of Stockton, Tim (Thea) Graham of Petaluma and Jenny Graham of Reno; her father, Mel Gagnon of Davis; her mother, Carol (Dave) Kearney of Vacaville; her sisters, Kati (Skip) Mezger of Sacramento, and Marcia (Ted) Parker of Stockton; her brothers Dan Gagnon of Cordova, Alaska, Jeff (Jodi) Gagnon of Marysville, Wash., Andy (Laurie) Gagnon of Woodland and Don (Sally) Gagnon of Woodland; and numerous nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly.
Kim was a kind and caring soul who was a great listener. She gently counseled her clients, friends and family and taught them about unconditional love. She had an adventurous spirit, having traveled on her own through Europe for two years and hitchhiked across the United States.
Her courage during her illness was inspiring. She seldom complained. All who knew her will miss her gentle, kind and loving ways.
Please join us for a celebration of her life on Saturday, July 20, at 1 p.m. at 730 Goodwin Ave., Penngrove, CA. A potluck picnic barbecue will follow.
Kim’s ashes will be scattered privately at several of her favorite places in the Sierra.
Donations may be made to her daughter Nellie’s college fund. Make checks payable to CollegeAmerica, FBO Nellie R. Graham, and send to Alders Financial Solutions, 1701 Novato Blvd., Suite 304, Novato, CA 94947.
