Kim Hellwig was born November 17, 1942 in Incheon, South Korea where she grew up and graduated from high school. On May 10, 1967, Kim met a United States soldier by the name of James Ernest Hellwig. They dated for two years and were united in marriage on October 7, 1969 in Seoul, Korea. They were blessed with one daughter: Sue Elizabeth and many wonderful memories. Due to Jim being in the military, the family was sent to different duty stations and Kim knew the importance of going with Jim everywhere he was assigned. She was a faithful wife and mother. After being transferred to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, the family decided to stay in the area after Jim retired. Kim spent the majority of her working years as a homemaker but did however work for AAFES for a short time before becoming owner of the Golden Needle in St. Robert and co-owner of the Moon Star Lounge. Kim enjoyed working out in her garden whether it was flower gardening or vegetable gardening. Her passion was her family…they were very important to her and enjoyed spending time with them as much as possible, especially the grandchildren. Kim was a member of the Korean First Baptist Church of Waynesville and was willing to help wherever needed. Kim passed away Monday, October 11, 2021 in the University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics of Columbia, Missouri having attained the age of 78 years. She will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered by all those that knew and loved her. Kim leaves to cherish her memory, her husband: Jim Hellwig of the home; one daughter: Sue Elizabeth Gallerani (William) of Savannah, GA; two grandchildren: Alexander and Briana; one brother; other relatives and friends. Memorial contributions may be made in memory of Kim Hellwig and may be left at Memorial Chapels and Crematory of Waynesville / St. Robert.
