FRYEBURG — Kim L. Babineau, 64, of Fryeburg, passed away on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

Born in Leominster, Mass., on March 30, 1954, she graduated from Leominster High School in 1972, and studied nursing for a time before moving to McCall, Idaho to start a family. She worked for the last 22 years at the White Mountain Hotel and Resort. She loved her work and her family there and made so many amazing friends.

She leaves behind her partner of 22 years, Andrew Clear, whom she loved completely. She loved being his biggest cheerleader, confidant, and friend. They made each other laugh, whether walking their dogs, or playing with their granddaughters. They chose to be in love with one another every day. They were so blessed to have such a deep commitment. To Andrew, she was the most amazing woman.

Her pride and joy were her granddaughters, Harper Greenblatt and Darby Potter, who brought light and love to her, and with whom she shared an unbreakable bond. She played the best games, told the funniest stories, gave the warmest hugs and sweetest kisses. There was no one else that could make a more delicious tomato soup, or who could tickle their backs longer than their “Nanny Kim.” There could also be no one else that will watch over them the way she will.

Kim also leaves behind her two children, Hannah Babineau and Biff Babineau, along with their father Jeffrey Babineau. Always a loving mother and their constant supporter, she gave them the strength and confidence to grow and make their mark on this world. She always loved their friends and made her home a home for all. They will miss her immensely and remember her daily.

She also leaves behind her brother, Richard Kelly of Winchendon, Mass., who truly made her happy and made her laugh like only a brother could; numerous nieces and nephews; as well as a community of friends that loved her deeply.

She was predeceased by her sister, Margret Titolo.

The first thing anyone noticed about Kim was her radiant smile. It certainly lit up the room. She was kind and generous and would do anything for anyone. Her family asks that when you think of Kim, remember her with a smile of your own, and help make this world a little brighter the way she always did.

A memorial gathering at the White Mountain Hotel and Resort on West Side Road, North Conway, N.H., will be held Monday, May 14, from 12 noon until 3 p.m. Immediate family will gather at a later date for a private remembrance. This is a time and place to share stories and memories about Kim and remember the love and happiness she gave to all of us.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Harvest Hills Animal Shelter.

Arrangements are under the care of Wood Funeral Home, 9 Warren Street, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be shared with her family at
