Kimberly Ann Espy-Bolek, 61, of Tucson, Arizona, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully February 3rd, 2020 at her residence.

She was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia and is the daughter of the late Brooks L. Espy Sr. and Rose M. Hoover-Espy. She grew up in Williamstown, WV, then began her journey in the US Air Force as an aircraft mechanic where she met her husband Frank. After retiring from the military she and Frank made their home in Tucson, AZ where she began her second career as a 911 dispatcher at AMR, Inc.

Kim never met a stranger, and was a mom, a mentor, and a friend to anyone she met. She would lend a hand, an ear or a shoulder at any moment.

She enjoyed watching Jeopardy, playing bingo, cooking and had a flare for making any situation an adventure.

She cherished the time and memories made with her family. She has a left a legacy of love and positivity that will carry on for eternity in the hearts of all who were lucky enough to know her.

She had a vast knowledge about anything and everything. Her laughter was infectious and her would smile would brighten everyone's day.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Frank A. Bolek Jr., her 4 children, Angie (Aaron) Brady, Frank A. Bolek III, Gail (Matt) Taylor and Jana Bolek, all of Tucson.

In addition, 5 grandchildren, Riley, Frank IV, Lily, Little Monster, and Lexi. Also, survived by 3 brothers, Brooks (Shelia) Espy,Jr, Kerry (Missy) Espy, Richard (Lisa) Espy, and one sister, Rose (Chesley) Wilson and many other kindred spirits.

She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, and one sister, Barbara "Tillie" Espy.

Services will be held on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at Adair Funeral Home on Dodge in Tucson, AZ. We will being receiving friends and family at 2:00pm with celebration of life services with full Military Honors to start at 2:30pm, Rev. Stephen Main officiating.

Kimmie was an amazing woman, friend and sister I was truly blessed to every have in my life. I am grateful I got to meet and fall in love with her. She knew my every mood and always knew how to make me feel better. When I moved to MN, she always said if I didn't become a lampshade, (she was so worried about my safety) I would return to Tucson. When I started dating again she insisted on knowing where I was going to be and when I would be home. Even when I was in Tucson and she was in WV.
I have so many wonderful memories of Kim. I love and miss you so much my sister from another set of parents. Rest in peace.

Kim and I took turns toting our kids here and there. She was always positive and a bunch of fun. My kids loved her and she was a good friend when I needed advice. May you rest in peace.

You will be missed Kim! You were ever so kind, caring, and thoughtful. You were our sons first order sent out and built their confidence up to continue their business! You helped start it all. We are sad to see you go but hope to see you in Glory when the savior calls us on. R.I.P. -The Mohler Family

I am so very saddened to hear of this. I went to school with Kim, she was one of my most treasured friends, a wonderful person full of light and life. May God's peace be with you all.

Jana, I'm deeply distraught to hear of your mother's passing. I still think about the breakfast visit that the three of us had at Corbin's, and how strikingly lively and completely genuine she was. You arranged the breakfast because you wanted us to meet, and I can't thank you enough for it -- it's a treasured memory of mine. My kindest thoughts go out to you and your family.
Bob Hartung, Endicott
