Kimberly Jo Riley


August 2, 1953 – April 27, 2017

Kim was the beloved wife and best friend of Brad Riley, devoted mother of Matthew Riley and Megan Deiwert, dedicated mother-in-law of Amy Riley and Craig Deiwert, and adoring grandmother of Harrison Riley. Kim was the daughter of Harry and Joann Doyle, both of whom preceded her in death. Kim was the sister of Mike and Chris Doyle.
Kim’s first job was working in a print shop, where she found her love for paper, cards, and all things hand-made. She went on to singing in a rock band, which even took her to Japan. Kim was then an administrative assistant at South Bend Osteopathic Hospital, where she met the love of her life, Brad. After having her babies, Kim stayed home to raise them. Kim loved singing, gardening, Bible Study Fellowship, Christmas, and all things that sparkled.
God took a girl who once sang in a rock band and turned her into a woman after His own heart, singing for His glory. One of the scriptures Kim found most comfort in was Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
There isn’t a soul Kim met that she didn’t have an impact on. She will be remembered for her voice, her gardens, her sparkle, and most of all her joy for the Lord.
To honor Kim’s life and her love of flowers, please send floral arrangements to McGann Hay Funerals / Cremation / Gatherings, Granger Chapel, 13260 SR 23, enter off Cherry Rd, where her memorial service will be held on Sunday April 30th at 3pm, Rev.
