Kimberly Jo Davis

June 11, 1958 ~ July 2, 2021 (age 63)


Kimberly Jo Davis, 63, of Indianapolis and formerly of South Bend, passed away on Friday, July 2, 2021.  She was born on June 11, 1958 in South Bend, Indiana, to Charles E. Davis and Doris L. Allen; both survive. 

Kim was a very loving, kind and selfless person; referred to by family, friends and neighbors as “good people.”  She was the best big sister to all her siblings who will miss her dearly.  Kim loved going to lunch with friends, having long conversations about any topic over the phone and visiting and celebrating with family.  She had a vast knowledge about anything Wizard of Oz which she passed her love for onto her siblings.  Kim always gave thoughtful gifts she knew her siblings would love which included Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends; they in turn shared this with their children. 

She encouraged her love for music to her siblings such as the Osmonds, Partridge Family, Monkees, Elton John and many country music artists.  She owned many 45’s & LP’s (aka. “Vinyl”).  Kim was also a big movie buff and loved old movies and musicals.  She was probably one of the first to own one of the original giant VCR players!  She was the best dog mama and leaves behind Forrest (Pug), Jesse (Pug/Blue Heeler) and Sadie (American Pit Bull Terrier mix). 

Survivors include her mother, Doris Allen of Indianapolis; Father and Stepmother, Charles Elwin and Janet Davis of South Bend; sisters, Kelly (Rob) Brunes of Indianapolis, Jeri (Paul) Gilb of Merrifield, Minnesota and Jacki (former spouse Joe) Beath of South Bend; brothers, Charles R.
