Kimberly Marie (Moore) Cloud was born on January 23, 1990 in Tucson, Arizona to parents Kelly and Cindy (Collier) Moore. She died on September 14, 2020 at St. Charles in Bend, Oregon at the age of 30, after a two-year battle with Colon Cancer.
Kimmy was raised in Arizona and later moved to Montana where she enjoyed spending time outdoors with her family hunting, fishing, hiking, riding horses and dirt bikes. Kimmy definitely had a gift for planning adventures and loved to drag her family along aside her. Her younger brother by 3 years, Adam, was always up for Kimmy’s crazy ideas and they were sure to have each other’s back. Kimmy and Adam grew up being the best of pals, taking care of their pets, drilling wrestling moves, and tumbling.
Kimmy attended Noxon Public school in Montana from 6-12th grade. In her high school years, Kimmy enjoyed competing in numerous sports including volleyball, basketball, track and cheer. Of course we can’t forget her title as ‘Lil Buckaroo Champion’ in 2001. Those who knew her, understand that she was a fierce competitor and she sure didn’t play like she was only 5’2. During her senior year she was crowned the homecoming Queen and in 2008 she graduated as Valedictorian.
Kimmy attended college at Eastern Oregon University where she received her MA in Physical Education and Health in 2012. There she was a collegiate track and field athlete and accomplished All American for indoor and outdoor track. It was at EOU where she met Dustin.
It was no big surprise that they fell in love quickly with all the things they had in common, especially their love for Jesus. Dustin and Kimmy married on August 17, 2013 in Prineville, OR in the middle of a cornfield surrounded by the ones they love. Together they had countless adventures and made a great team while hunting, running businesses, leading worship, and working to make their house a home. One of the greatest accomplishments they had as a team, was raising their kiddos and growing them to know the Lord.
She had an outstanding work ethic that included being on time, staying until the job was finished and “no complaining.” Dustin was thankful to have her as his number one crew member to help him build cabinets for his business Crooked Canyon Woodworks. Her ‘Get it Done’ attitude was a blessing to many and taught to her children, her players she coached at Ridgeview High School and students she taught at Powell Butte Charter School. There’s no doubt the Lord equipped Kimmy to enjoy hard work and that is where she shined the most. In the midst of her cancer battle, she managed to start a new exciting printing business called One Hot Press, where she was able to use her artistic and stylish abilities mostly to create graphic design t-shirts.
Kimmy woke up happy and eager to find the joy and adventure in each day she lived. She gave all experiences her absolute best with a smile almost as big as her. From the time she gave her life to Jesus at the age of 5, to her very last breath she just wanted to tell everybody about His love.
She is survived by her husband: Dustin Cloud, and children Tanner and Calynn, Prineville, OR; parents: Kelly and Cindy Moore, Plains, MT; brother: Adam (Rebekah) Moore, Livingston, MT; Father in law: Johnny Cloud; Mother in Law Debbie (Chet) Hettinga; sister in law: Megan (Lance) Gibson; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Kimmy was preceded in death by her grandpa: G. Monty Moore.
