Kim Clare

Kim Marie Clare, age 59, passed from this earthly realm on December 29, 2021, surrounded by her family.

Kim was born on July 22, 1962 to John Brit Clare, Jr. and Jackie Trucene Crowder Clare.

“I Love You”, if three words ever described Kim, those were it. She loved fiercely and always made sure you knew it. Kim never left a conversation or a place with a loved one without telling them “I Love You”. Kim’s greatest joy in this world was her kids, her family, and her friends and she cherished every moment she got to spend with them. She shared her love with the world openly and freely and even perfect strangers were often drawn to her.

She was preceded in death by her daddy, John Brit Clare, Jr., her brothers, Todd “Brit” Clare and John “Lee” Clare, and her sister Darla Jean Clare. Kim is survived by her three children, Christopher Marion and his wife Kristina, of Hobbs, NM; Randa Marion and her fiancé Jared Waters, of Hobbs, NM; and Jonathan Marion and his wife Jill, of Denver City, TX. Her mother, Trucene Fort and her husband, Clyde of Madill, OK. Two step children, Trish Johnson, of Odessa, TX; and Samuel “Clay” Johnson, of New Bern, NC. Her grandchildren (that meant the world to her) Matthew Johnson, Brittney Tessaro, Morgan Marion, Jocelyn Boggs, Shady Marion, Aimee Marion, Kamryn Marion, Nathan Marion, K’Leigh Marion, and Zachary Marion; and several great grandchildren. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, Aunts, Uncles, and other family members and close friends.
