OBITUARY Print

Kimberley Ann Hebert (Smith), 62, passed away on April 13, 2021, at Hope Hospice after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer with her husband, Tim, by her side. Born in Tacoma, Washington, she was the late Paula Jean and Ralph Benton Smith's daughter. Kim leaves behind her husband, Oscar "Tim" Hebert.

Known by many names, Kimberley, Kim, MoMo, and Kimbo profoundly impacted everyone she touched. She had an active and meaningful life that stretched far beyond her years. Kim loved traveling the world, meeting new people, engaging in the local culture, exploring new places, and most importantly, embracing the experience of just being alive.

After taking classes at CCRI and RISD, Kim found her eye and passion for photography. Her photographs capture the beauty of the people and landscapes of faraway places like India, Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica, Russia, and closer to home city life on the streets of New York City and New Orleans. While not an avid hiker, she found peace on the trails in Maine, Arizona, the Appalachians, Rockies, and the Andes with her husband, Tim.

Those who met Kim were mesmerizing by her big blue eye that pierced your soul. She had a caring and loving spirit that radiated from her big smile. She will be remembered for putting others first, whether it was giving loving hugs to those needing an embrace, helping someone less fortunate, handing out "Random Acts of Kindness Cards," or simply paying for drive-thru orders for strangers.

During the holidays, Kim could be caught playing Secret Santa. She would buy gifts for disadvantaged children, pay off Christmas layaway for others, or find a way to help those in need. Kim was confident, kind-hearted, and empathetic as she blazed a path for herself and her family.

Kimberly was married to her husband, Tim, for over thirty-three years. They were blessed with two children: Patrick James Macalik and his wife Jontee Macalik, and Laura Vance (Macalik) Gaston. She will also be missed by her grandchildren, Beckett Avery Macalik, Stella Bleu Macalik, and Madison Taylor Vegliante. And she is survived by her only brother Robert "Vance" Smith.

Kimberley worked in her husband's company, the Warwick-based Atrion, as an administrative professional. But she was much more than an employee; she was known as the "Heart of Atrion" and was instrumental in co-creating the much respected Atrion culture. She showed her leadership by empowering her department by giving them a voice and allowing them to exercise their judgment and creativity to create better solutions.

Kim's work did not define her; rather, her work was an extension of her mission of service. Her vivacious and enthusiastic spirit will sustain each of us as we move forward in our new world without our beloved Kim.
