Loving daughter, wife, mother

MORRIS - Kimberly White-Geremia age 53 of Morris, passed away peacefully on February 21, 2022. at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Torrington after a long but courageous battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of David Paul Geremia "Jr." and devoted mother of Delilah and Michael Geremia,

Kimberly was born March 11th 1968 in in Richmond, Virginia, the daughter of Joyce (Hester) White and the late Charles White of Virginia. Kim was a graduate of Highland Springs High School and began her career as an On-Air personality (DJ) for a span of 6 years at several Virginia radio and television stations. She was born with an amazing voice and soon became a singer and performer in many productions. Later she studied Business Management at V.C.U. and CT's Post University while continuing volunteer efforts. She married David Paul (Jr.), her love, partner, and soulmate, in September, 2003. Over the course of 19 years, they built a wonderful life and business (Durable Radiator & Auto Body) together.

Kimberly was a well-known figure in the community, and supported the Veterans Association, volunteering her time and supporting our troops for over 20 years. She began her love for the veterans when she became an entertainer for the USO, performing 6 times in over 15 countries, and subsequently, becoming a "Liberty Miss". She was also a co-founder of the "Glory Girls", performing for our veterans here at home too. Kimberly's biggest love was being a mother and wife. As a devoted and loving mom, she loved spending time with her daughter, Delilah (especially hosting special tea parties together) and cheering on her son's soccer games. Kimberly loved traveling with her family abroad and entertaining all with her beautiful voice
Kimberly felt so blessed to have such an eventful life. In 1991 and 1992, she won the title of "Miss Colonial Heights" and "Miss Vinton Dogwood Festival" respectively resulting in her advancing to Top 10 in "Miss Virginia" finals. She performed her signature song, "Smile", and soon became involved in the Miss America Preliminaries, starting a new venture. More recently, she was the happiest spending time in establishing, as founder and owner, the Petite America and Petite World Pageant as a means to help petite women of all ages foster self-esteem, beauty, intelligence, and make an impact on local communities.

Kimberly was also active in the local theater. Her most recent accolades performing in "Guys & Dolls" at the Seven Angels Theater. She was involved in many fundraisers, working for the Veterans, and participating in Relay 4 Life, raising awareness of breast cancer in women. She loved the beach, writing poems, scrapbooking life experiences, journaling, genealogy, karaoke, spicy food, performing in parades, Halloween parties, and restoring her purple 1968 Mustang convertible, and, of course, hosting Super Bowl Parties, as she was a Patriot girl at heart. Kimberly was the heart of her family, the light in every room, full of love, laughter and life. She was taken from us too soon and will be missed greatly.
