Death: Feb. 17, 2006

Kimberly Sue Bender, 8-year-old daughter of Alvin and Lillian (Yoder) Bender of Grantsville, died peacefully Friday, Feb. 17, 2006, at her home.

She was born Jan. 8, 1998, in Cumberland, and was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Myron C. Bender.

Kim attended Maple Glen Mennonite Church and was a member of the Maple Glen Kids Club. She participated in Mountain Friends Home School Group. Make a Wish Foundation provided her with a log play house which she decorated with Strawberry Shortcake. She also enjoyed ponies and horses.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by one brother and one sister.

Kim courageously battled brain cancer for the past 15 months. Although cancer afflicted her body, it could not touch her spirit. She ultimately received the perfect healing she wanted so much…to go home to be with Jesus.

Kim's short life was not lived in vain. She had a unique ability to cross cultural and social barriers and included everyone as her friend. She taught life lessons about love, giving, and caring. Her friendship will not be forgotten, as she "stole" many hearts. She will always be remembered for her big, blue eyes and her beautiful smile, even during physical suffering. She will be missed greatly by her many cousins and friends.

Friends were received at the Newman Funeral Home, Grantsville.

A service was held on Monday, Feb. 20, at the Maple Glen Mennonite Church, with Rev. Philip Moser and Rev. Robert Yoder officiating.

Interment was in the church cemetery.
