With great sorrow and pain I must post bad news to my family, friends, and clients. On January 14, 2021, I lost my friend and loyal Office Manager and Veterinary Technician Kim Hiser.
Kim had been a valued employee with Angel Animal Hospital since 2011. She will always be remembered for her caring attitude and love of her pets and patients. When needed Kim was always there to work extra hours and keep everything running smoothly.
She will be terribly missed by all our clients and staff as she was willing to do many unusual jobs for a veterinary hospital. Two summers ago, Kim was sunburned painting the black paw prints on the swimming pool floor.
I would like to share a few pictures however I have very few – because she was clever and accomplished at avoiding all photographers. Sending hugs and deep condolences to all her family.
Excerpted from her obituary:
Raised in Hilliard, Kim graduated from Hilliard High School in 1988. She graduated from Columbus State Community College with her associate’s degree in veterinary technology. She worked for many years as a vet tech. She deemed herself a “vet med lifer.”
Kim was a lifelong lover of animals. As a child she rescued and brought home any stray animal she could. As an adult, she loved a long nap on the couch surrounded by her dogs and cats. Kim’s chickens and ducks made her days in her garden plentiful. An avid reader, Kim preferred a book, but also never missed an episode of 90 Day Fiance or Dance Moms. In recent years she fell into the online planning community, making many friends along the way. Her office was filled with fancy pens, stickers, washi tape, and a variety of planners.
The truest bright spot in Kim’s life was her family. Mike and Kim were married in 1991, raised three children, and welcomed their first grandchild in December. Kim loved Sunday dinners with her family and holidays spent together at her parent’s house. Doug and Kim bonded over their love of gardening and enjoyed time together in their respective gardens. Kim’s sense of humor was always present. While making Christmas cookie ornaments alongside her mother and daughter she used strictly the camel cookie cutter, finding it amusing. When her grandson was born, she declared herself Leo’s “Grandmoo” because grandma was too boring.
