Kimberly Sue Sanders-Decowski was born on January 5th, 1968 to Dale Max Sanders and Grace Earlene Hudgens-Sanders in Stillwater, Oklahoma. As a child she spent time in Germany before settling in Woodbridge, Virginia where she graduated from Woodbridge Senior High School in 1986.
She met her husband Chester Francis Decowski II over a game of pinball at Kurt’s Arcade in Woodbridge. Kim proposed to Chester after three months of dating. They married September 3rd, 1988 and started to build their family having four children: Patrick 26, Samantha 24, Chelsea 22 and Kristine 18.
Kim worked as a Human Resources Specialist for the US Army Corps of Engineers for over 30 years.
In the last couple of years, Kim and Chester have become heavily involved with the American Legion Riders (Post 54) of Fernandina Beach, Florida. She loved all of the time spent riding motorcycles with her husband and new friends.
Remember Kim for the quiet, yet, rambunctious woman she was who was never afraid to speak her mind. Everyone in her life loved her in every way and was incredibly lucky to have been given the time they did with her. She will forever live on in their hearts and memories.
A celebration of Kim’s life will be held at Main Beach (Gazebo A) on Saturday September 2nd, 2017 at 10 am.
