Kimberly K Allen

July 7, 1960 — October 16, 2023

McCook, NE

Kimberly Kae Allen was born in McCook, Nebraska on July 7th, 1960, to Larry and Janet(Eckhardt) Rich. She grew up in Littleton, Colorado and lived there until returning to raise her family in the same small town of McCook that she loved to visit during the holidays and summer months.

Kim was married to Leo Wyatt in 1980 and from this union they birthed two sons, Tyler and Travis Wyatt.  Kim was widowed in 1990, relocating to McCook a few years later and met Robert Allen. They were married in the fall of 1995 and a year later they birthed their daughter, Katlyn Wilson(Allen). They continued to live and raise the family in McCook.

Kim had a passion for care. Which was easy to see in her lifelong career of nursing care. She was a beacon of compassion not just to the patients in her care, but to her friends and family. She would always make sure everyone was doing as best they could, crack a joke or sing a funny song to get the spirits lifted. The one thing Kim was most passionate about, was animals of all kinds. From rescuing them, to having her own personal zoo at times, there was never an animal she didn’t want to befriend and love.

She was fortunate enough to get the title of “Grammy Kimmy” in 2015 and took a lot of pride in being “a cool grandma” as she would always remind us. She loved watching her grandkids grow up, especially sharing her sense of humor with them, it really reignited the little kid within her spirit all over.

Kim passed away at her home in McCook on October 16, 2023 due to health complications. She never lost her sense of humor, and her passion to care for others, even when she needed the care herself.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Garrett and Dorothy Eckhardt(McCook) and Royal and Louise Rich(McCook), her first husband, Leo Wyatt.

Kim’s spirit will live on through the lives her parents Janet and Larry Rich, of McCook, Neb, her sister Stacy(Mark) Marra of Phoenix, Ariz., cousin Chris(Eckhardt)(Mike) Bannister of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, and of course through her children, Tyler (Alice) Wyatt of McCook, Neb and Travis (Lisa) Wyatt of Castle Rock, CO, and her daughter Katlyn(Tyler) Wilson(Porum, OK). As well as through all seven her grandchildren, nephews and nieces.

Private family services will be held at a later date
