Obituary

Kimberly Hope Diller, 70, of Monument, Colorado was born on October 11, 1951 in Colorado Springs and passed away on March 14, 2022 in Monument. Kim graduated from Mitchell High School in 1968 and attended Pikes Peak Community College for two years. Kim married Lynn Diller on November 4, 1978 in Lakewood, CO. She was a devoted wife and mother to their sons, Jason and Christopher. In addition, Kim was always there for her nephews and nieces for anything they needed. She was a figure of strength and love for her entire family. Kim was a school bus driver for Colorado Springs School District 11. Later, she owned Absolutely Nuts. She was known as "The Nut Lady" and all her customers looked forward to her weekly visits, not only for the nuts and candy she sold but for the kindness and conversations they experienced knowing Kim. Later in life, she was a caregiver for home health. She cared for many in assisted living centers as well as her mother for the last years of her life. Kim had many hobbies but her favorite was going shopping and sometimes deciding to return what she bought the very next day.  This ritual made her family laugh, but she also found many treasures and bargains for all along the way. She enjoyed camping, bowling, and especially spending time with her grandkids. Her faith was extremely important to her, and she was a member of the Colorado Cowboys for Jesus Church. Kim's biggest love in life was her family. Anything she could do to spend more time with them is what she would pursue. Anyone who met Kim knew that she never met a stranger and every stranger who met Kim was grateful. She was a bright light to everyone whose life she touched.

Kim is survived by her husband Lynn Diller of Monument; son Jason (Jennifer) Gonzales and their children Sam and Devon of Colorado Springs; son Christopher (Christina) Diller and their daughter Brynlee of Colorado Springs; daughter Shay-lee (Jack) Hadley of Canyon City; brother Robert (Elyssa) Clark of Ft. Collins; brother Matthew Clark of Westcliffe; sister Dee-Dee (Carl) Hosler of Wellington; brother David (Melody) Abbott of Escalante Canyon; brother Steve Stevens of Denver, Niece Katelyn; Nephews Tanner and Matt; great nieces and nephew Charistin, Payton, and Landon.

Kim was preceded in death by her mother Betty Jo Stevens; her father Robert J. Clark; her stepfather Dr. Wayne E. Stevens; her brother James Clark and her step-sister Skye Cottrell.
