Aug. 5, 1970-Sept. 1, 2013

Kimberly Anne (Crosby) Straus, of Woodinville, Wash., passed away on Sept. 1, 2013, at age 43. Kim is survived by her husband, Chris, and her three children, Nathan, Dana and Katherine. She is remembered by many others around her, including her mother, Marianne, of Lincoln (formerly Davis), her father, Al, of Shenandoah, Texas, her brother, Mark, of Vancouver, Wash., her step-brothers Rex, of Apache, Okla., and Russell, of Katy, Texas, and their families.
Kim was born on Aug. 5, 1970, in San Pedro. She had fond memories of childhood time spent in Atlanta, Ga., Houston and Dallas, Texas, and Davis, where she was a long-time resident. She attended North Davis Elementary, Emerson Junior High School and graduated from Davis High School in 1988. She went on to attend the University of California, Davis where she graduated with a degree in Environmental Design in 1992 and met her future husband.
Kim and Chris were married on May 6, 1994, in Pasadena. Upon the birth of her first child, Kim made the decision to dedicate her life to raising wonderful children and became a full-time mom, spending every waking moment focused on ensuring that her three children and husband were provided every opportunity. She provided the stability for the family to enjoy outstanding grades and achievement, participation in a variety of extra-curricular activities, and mission work in Africa, among many other things.
Kim is remembered as a loving, dedicated mother who was an amazing and creative artist at heart. Her beautiful smile and commitment to her children will be at the forefront of memories of her. This commitment is seen every day in her children who are strong, intelligent, respectful young people with bright futures ahead of them.
The family is dedicating a memorial bench with a memory plaque in the UC Davis Shields Oak Grove Arboretum to honor her life. Inquiries may be sent to straus_family@hotmail.com. The family also requests contact information so that they may continue to maintain relationships with Kim’s friends and family.
Kim will be a treasured memory.
