Obituary for Kimberly Ann Dopita

Kimberly Ann (LaDuke) Dopita passed away Friday, March 23, 2018 at her home in Hays, Kansas at the age of 60. She was born on February 14, 1958 in Atwood, Kansas to Eugene and Marianne (Heble) LaDuke. She grew up in Plainville, Kansas and graduated from Plainville High School with the Class of 1976. In 1977 she married Robert “Bob” Dopita, they later divorced. Together they had two children, Bobbi Jo and Tony.

Kimberly was an outgoing, free-spirited, adventurous woman. She worked for many years at RANS Co. in Hays and owned and operated her own photography studio in Plainville. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed growing her own vegetables. Always happy-go-lucky she loved the water and the air.

Kimberly is survived by her mother Marianne Cowley of Plainville; daughter Bobbi Jo Wiggins of Fort Worth, TX; son Tony Dopita and wife Nicole of Hays; brothers Kevin LaDuke of Plainville, Kelly LaDuke of Plainville, Kenny LaDuke and wife Lydia of Rockwall, TX, and Kerri LaDuke of Hays; special friend Randy Schlitter of Hays; and grandchildren Emily Dopita, Lawrence Dopita, Kylie Wiggins, and Kinley Wiggins.

She was preceded in death by her father Eugene LaDuke and step-father Don Cowley.

Marguerite Carstairs once said, “I am a free spirit… either admire me from the ground or fly with me, but don’t ever try to cage me.” Kimberly embodied a spirit that was unique, spontaneous, and fun-loving. Although we are heart-broken because she left us too soon, we rejoice that even now she is flying higher now than she ever has before, while she waits for us to join her on the other side of heaven.

Memorials are suggested to the National PKU Alliance and may be sent in care of Plumer-Overlease Funeral Home, 320 SW 2nd Street, Plainville, KS 676663.
