Roanoke - Kimberly Kay Leman, 52, of Roanoke, went to be with her Lord on Sunday, April 30th. Kim fought a successful battle with breast cancer in 2016, "ringing the radiation bell" to signal completion of treatment in January 2017. However, in February 2017 she was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer. It was not the Lord's will that she overcome this battle.
Kim was the beloved soulmate of her surviving husband, Randy, whom she married on May 27, 1984. She is survived by her son Ryan of Roanoke, parents Robert and Sharon McClure of Congerville, three brothers, Jeff (Marilyn) McClure of Roanoke, Bill (Shannon) McClure of Germantown Hills, David (Kristin) McClure of Bloomington and one sister Crystal (Kent) Remmert of Goodfield. Her maternal and paternal grandparents preceded her in death.
She received a secretarial degree at ICC and completed her Certified Professional Secretary exam. She began her full time employment at Henry Dick Inc. in Eureka, Illinois. Later, she worked alongside her husband in many business endeavors which included various duties with United Swine Genetics and Perfect Pastries Fundraising.
Kim was a member of the Congerville Apostolic Christian Church and active in the Harvest Call Sewing Group. She could be found most Sundays helping with kitchen lunch duties. Her calling and passion was sewing and tatting veils and headcoverings for Apostolic Christian Church congregations throughout the country. This service she provided has impacted countless spiritual lives. Any time her hands were not occupied, they were used for this mission. She also used her tatting talents to create original and unique cards. She exemplified the verse, "She worketh willingly with her hands" Proverbs 31:13. She also enjoyed entertaining guests outdoors at Clays R Us.
Kim received excellent care from the nurses and staff at the Illinois Cancer Center. She had a special connection with Mary Martha, RN, and Kami Doubet, APN. We would also like to express our thanks and deep appreciation to Paige Hall, RN, and Dr. Andrew Bishop of the MICU of OSF Peoria for their wisdom, attentiveness, and compassion.
Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am on Thursday May 4th at the Congerville Apostolic Christian Church. Church ministers will officiate. Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 3rd at Knapp-Johnson-Harris Funeral Home in Roanoke from 4-7 p.m. and also from 9-9:45 am prior to the funeral at the church.
