Rib Mountain

Kim Patricia Nelson, 62, of Rib Mountain, passed away on February 18, 2022, with her husband and daughter by her side. Kim was born May 22, 1959, in Wausau to Jeanette Rohloff and Pat Bresnahan.

Following her high school graduation, Kim began working at Wausau Insurance Companies.   She took a brief break from the insurance business to pursue her dream of being in the service industry, working at Tavern on the Square.   Kim ultimately returned to Wausau Insurance Companies/Liberty Mutual, continuing her insurance education and holding various positions of increasing responsibility until her retirement in 2018 after 35 years of service.

Kim met Patrick Nelson in February 2000.    They were married on March 6, 2003.

Kim loved being a mother and a grandmother, spending treasured time with her daughter Jenny, and her grandchildren, Reese and Grey.

Kim was adventurous and was not content unless she had a vacation planned.   She and her husband loved taking their annual trips to Jamaica and visiting historical sites throughout the United States.

When Kim wasn’t traveling with her husband, she enjoyed having lunch with her mother and taking casino trips with her girlfriends.    Her girlfriends converted her to a county music fan and she enjoyed several trips with them to Nashville for the country music festival.

Kim loved watching the Green Bay Packers and entertaining with family and friends.   She enjoyed cooking, baking, doing diamond paintings and puzzles.

Kim was a great friend to many and a best friend to her husband Patrick.   She was fun loving, enjoyed life, and will be sadly missed by everyone who had the privilege of having her in theirs.

Kim is survived by her mother Jeanette Bresnahan, her loving husband Patrick, daughter Jenny (Mike) Trzebiatowski, two precious grandchildren, Reese Harper and Grey Michael, siblings Pat (Terri) Bresnahan, Jill (Roger) Reisner, John Bresnahan, brother and sister in laws, Steve (Julie) Nelson, Steph (Dan) Wage, Paul (Amy) Nelson, Jay (Mindy) Nelson, her mother-in-law, Jeanette (Cleo) Woodward, and all of her loving nieces and nephews
