Kim M. Bray

Kim Marie Bray was born into eternal life Friday, Nov. 18, 2005, at age 40 after complications from surgery. She was the loving wife of Tom for 15 years and the cherished mother of T.J., Sara and Alex. She was the beloved daughter of Wayne and Nancy Rameker of Manitowoc. She was the special sister of Gregg Rameker of Rochester, N.Y. She was the granddaughter of Lillian Hebel of Manitowoc and daughter-in-law of Richard and Mary Bray of West Bend. She also was loved by brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends.

Born in Manitowoc, Kim attended Roncalli High School and came to Milwaukee, where she graduated from Marquette University and met her husband, Tom. Kim went on to a successful 16-year-career with Accenture. In 1991, Kim and her family settled in New Berlin, where she became a vibrant part of the community. Her spirit of volunteerism shined through at Holy Apostles Catholic Church as a cantor and participant in many activities. Kim also was an active member of the New Berlin Junior Woman’s Club. Even with her busy schedule, Kim always made sure everything she did came back to her true passion for her husband, children, extended family and friends.
