Kim M. Harrington

December 29, 1956 ~ November 18, 2017 (age 60)

Kim Marie Harrington, peacefully passed away Saturday, November 18, 2017 after a brief battle with cancer at Hillcrest in McCook.

Kim was born December 29, 1956 in Brainerd, MN to parents George and Monica O'Million Nichols. Kim grew up and attended school in Iron River, Michigan.

Kim moved to Steamboat Springs in 1977 and met Joe Harrington. Four years later they married on Emerald Mountain, high above Steamboat.

Throughout her life, Kim especially loved cultivating and tending to her many "butterfly" flower gardens, spending time with friends, as well as backpacking, boating, fishing, hunting, quilting with the ladies of Piecemakers Quilt Guild and sharing the companionship of Buzzy, Winston and Louie. Decorating her home inside and out for every holiday was a year round activity!
