Brenda Haslam Kimber, loving mother, grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully the morning of April 28, 2022, in her home surrounded by her children.
Brenda was born July 22, 1965, in Bountiful, Utah to Gary and Karen Haslam.
She graduated from Woods Cross High School in 1983 and earned an associate degree from Salt Lake Community College.
She was married to Eston Kimber from 1986 to 2014 and lovingly raised three children whom she loved the mostest.
She retired after many dedicated years of service to the State of Utah then moving to work for The United States Department of Justice/US Attorney’s Office.
She was a faithful and active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with her favorite time spent in her callings working with the Young Women. She loved her ward family.
Brenda enjoyed her time traveling the world with her family and friends. Visiting beautiful places such as Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Alaska. A lot of her favorite moments were spent at her family cabin in the Uinta Mountains.
One of Brenda’s biggest joys in life was being a grandmother to her “Sweet Girl”. They spent lots of time on walks to the park and getting their favorite ice cream, among many other things. She also enjoyed her time spent on walks around the neighborhood, hiking with, and loving on her adorable Grand Dogs.
She made many memories spent shopping, laughing, and being silly with her sisters and daughter.
Many know Brenda’s kind and welcoming personality but none more than her children’s significant others who felt as if she was their own mother right away.
Brenda is survived by her children Tyson (Lauren) Kimber, Whitney Kimber (Sheldon Yates), and Wyatt Kimber (Aubrey Allred); Granddaughter Marley Kimber; Father Gary Haslam; Siblings David Haslam, Sherrie Kimber, and Janet (Gary) Wensel.
She was preceded in death by her Mother Karen Haslam; Grandparents Clifford & Jacquelyn Haslam, Ray & Relva Swain, Jack Holt; Nephew David Haslam.
