Kimberlee was born in Boise, Idaho to Doris (Hartrick) and Raymond Patnaude on July 4th 1968. Growing up in Garden Valley and later Emmett, Idaho, Kimberlee was full of life and loved every minute of it. Her closest loved ones would describe her as beautiful, funny, amazing, wild and a pain in the rear (in all the best ways). She was passionate about capturing the beauty of Idaho in the many stunning photos she’d taken over the years; particularly of any birds and geologic formations that caught her eye.
On Tuesday, July 25th 2023 Kimberlee passed quietly in her sleep. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest source of pride, accomplishment and happiness. She never hesitated to go above and beyond for them or anyone she loved without blinking. She is survived by her daughter Jessica (John) Balderamas, son Raymond Hall, grandchildren James and Jared Balderamas, mother Doris Patnaude, her many siblings (both biological and bonus) Kevin (Shannon) Coy, Joseph (Amy) Patnaude, Ralph (Carolyn) Patnaude, Deanna (Sam) Eldredge, Jessica Rogers, Karen Brown, Rhonda Bushong, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and her platonic soul mate Rachel Earle Cook.
